Remember seeing Jurassic Park in a drive in with my cousin in 93. It was so crazy for a five-year old.

I saw it at the theater then. One of the great moments in cinematic history... Dinosaurs coming to life like never before.

I also saw Jurassic Park at a drive-in in '93

We did the same for Super Mario Bros. if I recall.

Jurassic Park was the second film I ever saw at the cinema, Beauty and the Beast was the first. I remember them both so clearly as the experience must have been so good they've etched themselves in my memory.

The first movie I have a clear memory of seeing in a theater is Prancer in 1989, though it certainly wasn't actually my first. Before that I have vague memories of the whole family in the car at the drive in, but I can't remember which films.

With digital delivery systems for theaters I wish classic films were being played on a few screens all the time. Ticket sellers or individual theaters could do polls - "which classic movie do you want to watch?" and then beam the most popular ones out for special showings.

I'd definitely watch Jurassic Park on the big screen. Nothing like that is happening here as cinemas cannot open until 4th July.

Nothing local to me open right now either. I guess technically they are allowed to reopen in some capacity in this county, but they don't really have anything to show i guess.
