In Theaters This Week:

Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience


What’s it about? In Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster, a millionaire invites a pair of scientists to a remote island, where has created an animal preserve for cloned dinosaurs. What could possibly go wrong?

Who’s it for? It’s rated PG-13 “for intense science fiction terror.” If you saw Jurassic Park in the theater when it first came out, you know that the MPAA isn’t lying, It’s safe for teens, but it’s sure to give younger kids nightmares.

Is it any good? Critics found Jurassic Park to be more spectacle than substance, but also were quick to note that it’s spectacle of a very high order.
