Steven Spielberg adapts Michael Crichton's bestseller in which an unusual theme park is opened on a remote island. The catch: it's populated by real live dinosaurs brought to life by huge advances in biotechnology. 

When a group of specialists get a preview tour of the island, everything goes amiss: embryos are stolen, the power lines that contain the dinosaurs go down, and the question "what happens when man tries to play god?" gets answered.

(Part of that answer is, "man gets eaten by dinosaurs while he is sitting on the toilet.")

After the screening, join us at High Horse for a Throwback Thursdays After Party, where the fun will continue with live DJs and complimentary drinks and appetizers! Throwback Thursdays After Party admission is free with purchase of film tickets, but space is limited and requires a ticket; you must be 21+ to attend.
