One Year Dino-Versary Weekend

The Land Before Time

Directed by
Don Bluth

Central Cinema’s One YearDino-Versary Weekend pairs Jurassic Park with another sharptooth-minded Steven Spielberg production in Don Bluth’s beloved (and perennially sequelized/defamed) adventure The Land Before Time.

All Land Before Time screenings are available in a double feature presentation with Jurassic Park.

Littlefoot (Gabriel Damon), a young plant-eating dinosaur, is orphaned after his mother (Helen Shaver) perishes while protecting him from a vicious carnivore. With her last breath, she tells him how to get to the legendary Great Valley, where he will be reunited with others of his kind. With his friend Cera (Candace Hutson), Littlefoot sets out for the fabled land, meeting a variety of new friends along the way — while also being tracked by the killer dinosaur that mortally wounded his mother.

“As handsome and honest an animated feature as any produced since Walt Disney`s [1966] death; it may even be the best.” – Chicago Tribune

“So authentically geared to the thinking of children that it should charm adults as well.” – New York Times
