One of the mall movie theaters here in Anchorage (okay, there's only one mall movie theater) plays an older movie once a week, on Wednesday nights. Usually these are not old movies, but maybe movies you missed when they first came out. Things like Reservoir Dogs, A Clockwork Orange, Christmas Vacation, etc. Well, tomorrow they're playing Jurassic Park, which is my favorite movie. Can you believe I was just 10 years old when I first saw Jurassic Park? I wasn't even aware of its existence, but my aunt came into town to take me to a screening. I remember being blown away, but I was scared of the Dilophosaurus and raptors in the kitchen. I saw the movie in theaters again the same year, but that time while visiting relatives in Wisconson.
Tomorrow, after fifteen years, Jurassic Park is stomping back into theaters, and I will be able to fully appreciate it. In a way, I'll be seeing my favorite movie on the big screen for the first time. A few friends are coming along, so it should promise to be a good time!
