Catch the original Jurassic Park in theaters

Joshua Rothkopf

Jurassic World just made box-office history, with its half-billion-dollar opening weekend (yes, just during the weekend, billion with a b). Maybe you were a part of that haul, maybe not. But no amount of money is ever going to replace that pants-wetting thrill you got as a kid when you saw Steven Spielberg's 1993 original in theaters: a roaring, chomping spectacle unlike anything else.

Now you can revisit the magic: A few theaters will be showing Jurassic Park in the coming weeks. (We don't blame them for glomming on to the sequel's moment; they're doing a public service.) This weekend, Landmark's Sunshine plays the original this Friday and Saturday at midnight. Nitehawk Cinema has brunch screenings scheduled for June 27 and 28. And Summer on the Hudson will be screening the movie outdoors and for free in Riverside Park on July 1.

And if you just want to watch it at home, because you're still traumatized by rampaging dinosaurs and have been scarred all these years, and are toying with filing a wholly frivolous lawsuit against all involved? You can safely stream it at home on Amazon and rent it for just $1. Here's a link to their deal.
