Dinosaur Screenings


Handmade Cinema hosted two classic dinosaur films and an afternoon of themed fun.

The Land Before Time
Sunday 24 February, 4-6pm, £6
Weston Park Museum, Western Bank, S10 2TP
Guests took a journey back to the beginning of time to meet the dinosaurs that roamed the earth. Handmade Cinema transformed Weston Park into the prehistoric setting of 1980s classic film The Land Before Time with ancient beasts, erupting volcanoes and a jungle landscape. We explored the dinosaurs’ home and met the residents, dared to put our heads in a dinosaur’s mouth for a photo and crafted dino masks.

Jurassic Park
Sunday 24 February, 7:30-10:30pm, £6
Weston Park Museum, Western Bank, S10 2TP
The audience took a seat amongst Sheffield’s largest collection of artefacts to watch John Hammond bring dinosaurs back to life. The iconic 1990s film returned to the big screen in a setting hand decorated by the Handmade Cinema team. Before visiting Isla Nublar, we embarked on some dinosaur themed crafts and snapped a photo with our heads in a dinosaur’s mouth.

In the lead up to the screenings we hosted three free dinosaur workshops, for further details visit http://handmadecinema.co.uk/workshops/dinosaur-workshops/
