The Local Haps: Drafthouse Richardson Plans Special JURASSIC WORLD Events

JURASSIC WORLD is almost upon us. For most people my age, this is a big deal regardless of the quality of the movie since the original JURASSIC PARK was such a monumental moviegoing experience for an entire generation of nerds. As always, the Drafthouse in Richardson has something special planned to commemorate the release of the movie and they spared no expense. Check out the details after the break!

Alamo Drafthouse Richardson goes prehistoric for JURASSIC WORLD!

“Hold on to your butts.”

The park is open and so is the Alamo Drafthouse Richardson for JURASSIC WORLD! Join us for some T-rrific fun for all ages beginning this Thursday evening (June 11) for early shows and opening day Friday (June 12) continuing throughout the weekend. Alamo Drafthouse Richardson is located at 100 South Central Expressway, Richardson, TX 75080. drafthouse.com/dfw/richardson

You can have your photo taken with a replica Jurassic Park Jeep, parked out front of the theater Thursday through Sunday. On Thursday evening, local cosplay personalities will also be in attendance dressed as characters from the franchise.

The photo ops don’t stop there! Inside the lobby you'll find a photo booth with a real motorcycle (and fake raptors) so you can channel your inner Chris Pratt and recreate the already iconic charging raptor pack scene. For the kiddos, we'll have a dino dig outside on the patio AND a mini JP Power Wheel Jeep.

On Thursday and Friday evenings also Saturday and Sunday afternoon, our friends from THE LOST TOYS Toy Store will be in our lobby with a pop-up shop featuring both new and vintage JP toys for sale. So if you've spent the last 20+ years regretting not buying that battle damage dino OR you just want to start collecting now, they aren't extinct!

To quote John Hammond "Who's hungry?"
As always, Alamo will have a themed menu for those dinosaur-sized appetites. Veloci-WRAP-tor anyone?!

Thursday night will also see the release of the theater’s first exclusive pint glass – an official collaboration between Alamo Drafthouse and Universal Pictures for JURASSIC WORLD. Pint glasses could be preordered with advance tickets. But if you missed your chance, don't go all Gennaro! There will be a limited amount available for purchase at box office while supplies last.
