Come summer, fans of prehistoric thrills will once again be flocking this way.
The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center has announced the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra will perform the score to "Jurassic Park" while the movie plays on a big screen at Symphony Hall on Aug. 19.
"This summer is the 30th anniversary of Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster," noted DSSO Executive Director Brandon VanWaeyenberghe. The orchestra also "had a really great success with our concert back in February celebrating John Williams," who composed the "Jurassic Park score.
"DECC visitors seem to love dinosaurs," VanWaeyenberg added. Last summer saw the animatronic dinosaur show Jurassic Quest sell so many tickets, organizers had to confirm there wasn't an accounting error. "If ticket sales are that strong for the DSSO's 'Jurassic Park' presentation," VanWaeyenberg indicated, "there's a possibility of adding a second performance."
