Early showings of the 3D-exclusive presentation will begin at 4pm on Thursday, August 24.

“There’s truly no better way to see Jurassic Park than on the big screen,” said Jim Orr, president of domestic theatrical distribution for Universal Pictures. “The monumental impact it made back in 1993 stands as a true testament to Steven Spielberg’s unparalleled genius. Not only did it firmly secure its place as a timeless classic, but its energy and excitement remain as vibrant as ever. With this release in RealD 3D cinemas across the US and Canada, we’re thrilled to offer moviegoers the chance to rediscover this movie once again on a big screen.”

Sean Spencer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for RealD, added, “For audiences who have not experienced this beloved classic on the big screen in years, now is the chance to see the original Jurassic Park in 3D. This is summertime event moviegoing the way it was meant to be seen.”

Jurassic Park is based on the best-selling novel by Michael Crichton, with a screenplay by Crichton and David Koepp. Neill and Dern play paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, who, along with mathematician Ian Malcolm (Goldblum), are selected to tour an island theme park populated by cloned dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park’s mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they quickly find out otherwise when the predators break free and go on the hunt.

Jurassic Park also stars Ariana Richards, Joseph Mazzello, Wayne Knight, Martin Ferrero, BD Wong, Bob Peck and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie won three Oscars including Best Sound Effects, Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects. The pic features a musical score by composer John Williams.

The entire Jurassic Park franchise spanning six movies counts $6.07 billion at the global box office.
