The Big Screen Classics series features films of merit that were created to be seen on a glorious, larger-than-life big screen, exactly as their directors intended.

Based on the 1990 novel by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park tells a story where John Hammond — a wealthy businessman — and a team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of de-extinct dinosaurs. When industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park’s power facilities and security precautions, a small group of visitors, including Hammond’s grandchildren, struggle to survive and escape the now perilous island.

The film won over 20 awards, including three Academy Awards for technical achievements in visual effects and sound design. Following its 20th anniversary re-release in 2013, Jurassic Park became the oldest film in history to surpass $1 billion in ticket sales and the 17th overall.

Jurassic Park earned it’s place as a Big Screen Classic with the spectacle of believable dinosaurs in actual scale to their surroundings, including the thundering growl of a T.Rex and the massive beauty of a Brachiosaurus.  But its stirring soundtrack, composed by John Williams, must be heard in 7.1 Surround Sound to be fully appreciated.
