The Jurassic Park franchise will officially come full circle next month with the release of Jurassic World: Dominion. And to celebrate nearly 30 years of the franchise, fans will be able to watch the highly-anticipated sequel alongside the film that started it all. AMC Theaters has announced a one-night-only theatrical pairing of Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park and Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming legacy installment. The double feature will take place at select theaters on Thursday, June 9 at 5pm.
There were four other movies in between these two. But it’s definitely fitting to play these particular films alongside each other. After all, Dominion reunites original Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum onscreen for the first time in almost three decades. In Dominion, they will also share the screen with Jurassic World mainstays Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Tickets for the double feature are now available on amctheaters.com or the AMC mobile app. Attendees will also receive an exclusive NFT with their purchase.
This won’t be the first time that Jurassic Park has returned to theaters. Universal previously converted the film to 3D in honor of its 20th anniversary in 2013, and brought it back to theaters again in 2018 to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The movie also became the highest-grossing film of all time after its original release in 1993. But four years later, it was bested by Titanic.
Right now, Jurassic Park is the 41st highest-grossing film in history. Two of its sequels, Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, currently hold the number 7 and number 16 spots, respectively.
Jurassic World: Dominion will open wide on June 10.
