‘Jurassic Park’ returns

Jurassic Park is the main attraction Saturday at the National Tropical Botanical Garden’s “Movie Night in McBryde Garden.”

It will be a chance to visit the site of one of the 1993 film’s famous scenes with the Moreton Bay fig trees, where the dinosaur egg shells were discovered by Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill) and the kids.

To mark the occasion, dinosaur cutouts and pretend eggs will be at those same trees, and folks will be welcome to pose for pictures and perhaps even run from a hungry dinosaur.

The movie remains popular, especially on Kauai, so this is a wonderful chance to see this blockbuster under the stars.

Attendees are encouraged to bring low beach chairs or blankets for seating. Food will be available for purchase from Kauai’s favorite food trucks. Small, soft-sided coolers are permitted.

Get there early to select a good spot, then enjoy the evening.

Before the movie begins, enjoy kid-friendly activities with Kauai Community College COGS and Kauai Educational Association for Science and Astronomy.

Free parking will be available at the NTBG South Shore Visitor Center. Attendees will be shuttled into the garden from the Visitors Center for the movie. First shuttles will depart from the South Shore Visitors Center at 5 p.m., last shuttle before the movie begins departs at 7 p.m.

The film is expected to start about 9 p.m.

This year’s showings for Movie Night in McBryde Garden included A Bug’s Life, E.T. The Extraterrestrial and Moana.

Advance tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 6 to 12. Keiki 5 and under are free.
