Jurassically Yours: Extinct but Not Forgotten
Dinosaurs have been portrayed in film in myriad ways—from ferocious monsters to intelligent predators to sympathetic animals losing their habitat. But nearly any movie featuring prehistoric creatures incites curiosity and wonder. Programmed in coordination with the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park and the 30th anniversary of The Land Before Time, this series celebrates the history of how dinosaurs have been brought to life in the movies. On-screen representation of these prehistoric animals has changed dramatically with advances in technology and paleontology, beginning in early part of the 20th century with stop-motion animation, evolving into animatronic machines, and eventually to the mind-blowing computer-generated special effects audiences are accustomed to today. Take a stroll back in time and film history with this dino-centered series.
