Steven Spielberg’s JURASSIC PARK
(PG-13, 1993, 125 min)

In Steven Spielberg’s massive blockbuster, paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are among a select group chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. While the park’s mastermind, billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), assures everyone that the facility is safe, they find out otherwise when various ferocious predators break free and go on the hunt.

Followed by:

James Goldstone’s ROLLERCOASTER
(PG, 1977, 119 min)

This action-thriller was partially filmed at Kings Dominion in Virginia! An extortionist (Timothy Bottoms) sets off a bomb on an amusement park roller coaster, causing multiple deaths, then says that he will do the same to five other rides around the country unless he’s paid one million dollars. Amusement park employee Harry Calder (George Segal) gets unwillingly drawn into the precarious situation when the FBI’s lead agent (Richard Widmark) presses him into service as the go-between with the authorities and the bomber.
