Jurassic Park coming to the Hippodrome – complete with live orchestra


19 February 2018




It’s the film which started one of the most successful franchises in cinema history, and now you can once again enjoy Jurassic Park on the big screen complete with a live orchestra playing its famous soundtrack on 10th September.

Presented by Colston Hall, this epic science fiction thriller will be shown in HD at the Bristol Hippodrome with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra playing its blockbuster theme. The evening is a new addition to a wide programme of events presented by Colston Hall in venues around Bristol as the venue undergoes its £48m transformation.

Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park stunned audiences when it was released in 1993, telling the story of what happens when an island amusement park filled with dinosaurs experiences a power issue, rendering its security safeguards useless.

The thriller is as memorable for its score, composed by John Williams, as it is the drama that unfolds on screen, and The Czech National Symphony Orchestra will add a magical touch for the audience. Based on the best-selling novel by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park was masterfully directed by Spielberg and won three Oscars. It also became the highest-grossing film of all time when it was released in June 1993.

Jurassic Park features renowned paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) who are part of a group visiting the island when the power is cut. As the electric fences that keep the dinosaurs – including the giant, predatory Tyrannosaurus Rex – hemmed in are rendered useless, the humans on the island find themselves at the bottom of the food chain and must fight for their lives against unimaginable dangers.

It remains one of the most thrilling science fiction adventures ever made, and transformed the movie-going experience for an entire generation.

The Jurassic Park evening is art of Spielberg Season which will also see Jaws (Saturday, April 14th) and Raiders of the Lost Ark (Thursday, April 5th) screened, accompanied by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets are now on sale. For more information visit the Colston’s Hall event page.
