Jurassic World: The Exhibition will allow everyone to get up close and personal with realistic life size animatronic models of dinosaurs. Stomping out of the studio, off the screen and into Melbourne city, this scary as interactive, immersive and innovative show will be sure to delight both kids and adults alike.
Melbourne is the only city in Australia who will host this landmark show, which is based on Universal Pictures’ Blockbuster film Jurassic World, the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series.
It will premiere at Museum Victoria 19th March 2016 – 9th October 2016 and is the result of a collaboration between the Melbourne institution and Imagine Exhibitions, who negotiated a licensing agreement with the American company.
Universal Pictures Jurassic World in 2015 became one of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history, grossing more than $1.67 billion at the global box office on its way to becoming the third-highest-grossing film of all time.
The Melbourne based Creature Technology Company founded in 2006, are today producing technologically sophisticated, creatively inspired and life-like animatronic creatures for exhibitions, arena spectaculars, theme parks, stage shows and events around the world.
Having already produced many great ‘beasts’, their models will provide an ‘awe inspiring’ show like no other, providing a ‘walk with dinosaurs’ experience.
They’re 7.5m high King Kong starred on stage in Australian theatres last year, scaring many patrons.
Paleontologist Jack Horner, who has worked as an adviser to the filmmakers, will ensure that the show is also an educational experience.
A combination of cutting-edge technology and sound research, Jurassic World: The Exhibition will be a world-class exhibition event for Melbourne in 2016, which is assured to bring in the tourism dollar.
The government is hoping for ‘thousands of visitors’ to help boost the State’s economy.
“We are delighted Melbourne Museum will host the world premiere of Jurassic World: The Exhibition,” said Dr. Patrick Greene, CEO, Museum Victoria. “We know that dinosaurs capture the imagination of young and old alike, and this exhibition is sure to wow audiences and inspire young minds” he said.
Plan ahead and choose your sessions.
