Jurassic Park is probably the closest Spielberg has come to the thrill-ride heights of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Some might say that nothing he’s done since Raiders has come close to that masterpiece, but let me ask you this: Did Raiders of the Lost Ark have friggin’ DINOSAURS in it? No, it did not. And in a world where we’re inundated with schlock like Dinocroc, it’s nice to be reminded that at one point in the early 90′s, someone knew how to make these things look nice and scary. The people in the movie ain’t too bad, either: Richard Attenborough, Samuel L. Jackson, Laura Dern, and nerd heartthrob Jeff Goldblum at his smarmiest.
Before the main feature starts, an episode of Amazing Stories will be shown. The Mission stars Kiefer Sutherland, Casey Siemaszko, and Kevin Costner, and was directed by Spielberg.
The doors of the Bagdad (3702 SE Hawthorne) open at 10pm, film begins at 11pm. Admission is only $3, and you have to be 21 or over.
