About The Show
Based on the 1990 novel of the same name, “Jurassic Park” stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. Directed by Steven Spielberg, this blockbuster takes us to an island off Costa Rica where dinosaurs roam the earth. Paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (played by Neill) and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler (played by Dern) are invited to the island to certify the safety of the dinosaur park before it opens to the public. With no shortage of recognizable supporting cast members or dinosaurs, this film is a delight of epic proportions.
“Jurassic Park” won three Academy Awards for its technical achievements in visual effects and sound design. It is considered a landmark in the development of computer-generated imagery and animatronic visual effects. The film has a 92% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes and was inducted into the National Film Registry for its cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance in 2018. Following its 3D re-release in 2013 in celebration of the film’s 20th anniversary, it became the oldest film in history to surpass $1 billion in ticket sales.
Doors open at 1:00 PM. Dave Moreno plays a live concert at the “Mighty” Morton organ at 1:30 PM. Our master of ceremonies, Matías Bombal announces the movie at 2 PM.
Friends of the Fox offer complimentary drinks and snacks, and a tour of the theatre after the film. Donations are greatly appreciated. The Friends of the Fox is a volunteer, non-profit organization offering a monthly classic movie experience at the Bob Hope Fox Theatre. Founded in 1995, the Friends of the Fox supported the restoration of the Theatre through significant fundraising efforts. More than 25 years later, the organization continues to promote the Theatre as an integral part of the Stockton community and the “Crown Jewel” of downtown Stockton’s revitalization efforts.
