Yup the first film to hit the cinema screens with the new DTS Sound Systems. Hope they have not mucked about with it for the new 3D version.
Memories of viewing the original film are vivid from 1993 with the auditorium absolutely packed out to capacity. Father Christmas delivered me the Blu-ray last year and we watched it twice back to back delivering some marvellous memories. It is quite an amazing movie I think and the pioneering Mr Spielberg invested heavily in that new sound system which also found its way onto LaserDisc just 4 years later. I can still feel the floor shaking from the superb audio heard in 1993.
We see it in 3D over here in June so will be joining the line for tickets.

I loved the "Geriatric Park" spoof in the 3rd Naked Gun film. One of its few funny bits. Back to the original "Jurassic Park", I recall it was fully booked until 11pm on its opening night in Cardiff. But I just managed to get a ticket.There was an electric atmosphere of anticipation in the theatre which you don't see so much of these days. Later, I was projecting the movie in an arts centre. Even though the film had been out for four months, it sold out and about 100 people were turned away.I believe it was the most popular film they had ever shown. Then again, they booked a lot of rubbish!

Watched it today at the cinema....not bad in 3D, but the sound was very "ho hum" the sub did very little as with everthing else sound wise . The Blu-ray that I watched a while ago was "way" better. The 3D in this case was ok, however the scene where the helicoptor is arriving at the island looks like a toy model one the kids might buy these days. This, I guess is down to the way they have done this movie for its 3D release some other scenes just did not look right prespective wise, anyway it was nice to watch it on a big screen once again....will stick to the 2D blu-ray in future

I think the 3D version is spectacular. Picture is gorgeous, sound is perfect and the only part that seems dated is the computer graphics. This is the best depth conversion I've seen (missed Titanic), making it look like it was actually shot in 3D. The film is so well crafted I got caught up in it all over again. As Graham said, it's great to see it on the big screen again, just a bit bigger than when I project my Super 8mm print of the feature.
-------------------- I think there's room for just one more film.....
