The concept of people somehow existing in the age of dinosaurs (or dinosaurs somehow existing in the age of people) has been explored in film and on television numerous times. No treatment, however, has ever been done with more skill, flair or popcorn-chomping excitement than this 1993 blockbuster. Set on a remote island where a man's toying with evolution has run amok, this Steven Spielberg classic ranks as the epitome of the summer blockbuster. "Jurassic Park" (1993) was the top public vote-getter this year.
Part of the Library’s fourth annual “Summer Movies on the Lawn” outdoor film festival, this series of films showcases iconic films from the Library’s National Film Registry, will be presented on Thursday evenings at sundown this summer on the north lawn of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building, across the street from the U.S. Capitol. No tickets are required for these outdoor film screenings, but capacity will be limited. Each group of attendees will be assigned a seating location that is at least 6 feet apart from other attendee groups. Guests may bring their own food and beverages, but alcohol is prohibited.
Fully vaccinated attendees are not required to wear masks, but those who are not fully vaccinated (meaning two weeks past their final shot) must wear masks at all times, except when actively eating or drinking.
Located between the Supreme Court and the Jefferson Building at 10 First St., SE (running the length of East Capitol Street between First and Second streets, SE), the north lawn of the Jefferson Building provides a magnificent space for people to watch films in the shadows of the U.S. Capitol Building.
Seating on the lawn will be available starting at 6:30 p.m., with the film to commence at sunset (times will vary).
