Capri Theatre Set to Re-Open

The Capri Theatre in Montgomery re-opens from its last phase of remodeling on Thursday, June 2 with a Science on Screen presentation of Jurassic Park. One show only at 7:30.

The movie will be preceded by a presentation on Real Life Paleontology by Jonah Cohen, Manager of Science Education at the McWane Science Center in Birmingham.

This show is open to the public and is made possible by a grant from the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Science on Screen is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Tickets are $8.00 for Capri Members, $10.00 for non-members.

Huge advancements in scientific technology have enabled a mogul to create an island full of living dinosaurs. John Hammond has invited four individuals, along with his two grandchildren, to join him at Jurassic Park. But will everything go according to plan? Spoiler Alert: No.

Jurassic Park, and its sequels, set the standard for dinosaurs in the last two decades, but how does it measure up against our scientific knowlege of dinosaurs? Join the Manager of Science Education from Birmingham’s McWane Science Center for “Veloci-whaaa??? Real Life Paleontology and Jurassic Park.”
