Come on an adventure to Isla Nublar, home to a theme park full of living dinosaurs cultivated from prehistoric DNA… what could possibly go wrong?!

Experience Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic JURASSIC PARK in immersive IMAX 3D, to celebrate National Science Week and all things palaeontology with IMAX Melbourne and Museums Victoria!

With his remastering of the epic into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award® winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.

Jurassic Park 3D follows two dinosaur experts - Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler - as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. 

Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm, who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren, they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control.  Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic, prehistoric man-eating beasts.
