On Thursday, February 9, The Academy of Natural Sciences’ resident film hecklers are dusting off their lab coats for the first 2012 installment of Mega-Bad Movie Night; the victim this time around is Steven Spielberg’s 1997 sequel to Jurassic Park. In addition to snacks, drinks and the usual Academy sights, pre-show attendees will be treated to live birds, amberized bugs, and dinosaur fossils.
We’re giving away three pairs of tickets to attend the event, to enter just e-mail us the name of your favorite dinosaur movie and tell us why you love it so (deadline Monday, February 6 at noon). Our favorite is 1985’s Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend because it features William “The Greatest American Hero” Katt and Patrick “The Prisoner” McGoohan alongside the cutest and most unrealistic dinosaurs ever put on film. And it’s directed by Bill L. Norton (1972’s Gargoyles).
Doors open at 6:30 PM, film at 8:00 PM. General admission is $15.
