Nothing, except that next Tuesday night — yes, the day before the 4th of July — the Hollywood Forever Cemetery will host a special screening of the first film in the Jurassic Park series, which is based on the bestselling novel by Michael Crichton, followed by celebratory fireworks.
Every summer, for the last 10 years, Cinespia has held the summer movie series every Saturday night, showing some of the greatest films in Hollywood history. On Saturday, June 30, Labyrinth (starring David Bowie) will draw 80s movies fans out to the grassy, outdoor theater venue. The following weekend, classic film fans can watch Katherine Hepburn and Carey Grant chase a giant leopard around in the 1938 film Bringing Up Baby.
Gates for the July 3rd event scheduled for Jurassic Park will open at 7:30 pm, per usual, and the film will start at 9 pm. Tickets are donation based, but still necessary, and are $10 at the gate (reservations are recommended).
Food, beer and wine are permitted, and other picnic gear is welcome (but leave your tall chairs at home). The Hollywood Forever Cemetery is located at: 6000 Santa Monica Blvd at Gower.
FYI – In other Jurassic Park news, turns out next summer we’ll be able to see the 3-D version of the original in movie theaters, as Universal pumps audiences up for the 4th installment, produced by Steven Spielberg, with an expected release in summer 2014.
