Dinosaur fever roars into life at IMAX Melbourne on Thursday 10 March, 2016, with the premiere of Walking With Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet 3D.
This new movie follows the journey of a ‘brave Pachyrhinosaur’ and its ‘will to survive the harsh Alaskan conditions in the Cretaceous period’ - more than 70 million years before former US Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin braved those same harsh Alaskan conditions.
IMAX Melbourne says it is celebrating the opening of Melbourne Museum’s Jurassic World exhibition with a ‘very special ticketing deal,’ which is that ‘with every Jurassic World ticket sold, parsons will be eligible to purchase a ticket to see ‘Walking With Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet’ for just $10.
Given that an adult ticket for IMAX Melbourne costs $42, this is a genuine saving for those interested in seeing prehistoric Earth animals far more ferocious than any US politician - even Donald J. Trump!
Exclusively presented at IMAX, and in mind-bogglingly amazing IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL, this production is thanks to BBC Earth, which invites us all ‘to come on a journey through the seasons, and experience a year in the life of dinosaurs fighting, feeding, migrating, playing and hunting.’

BBC Earth promises that ’with the most ambitious CGI visuals, this film reveals the story behind the lives of the dinosaurs and the challenges they faced in a constant battle of survival.’
We’re told that ‘spring signals new life as many species of dinosaurs start to lay eggs, rearing the hatchlings to ensure a chance of survival. But as the young grow through summer, they are vulnerable to predators like the Troodon.
‘Cool autumn months spur the dinosaurs to migrate, but not without risk from natural catastrophes and packs of Gorgonsaurs hunting. In winter, temperatures drop and the sun ceases to rise. As spring approaches, the mature dinosaurs go in search of a mate.
‘For the Pachyrhinosaur, scientists believe the frill on its head could help to attract a mate or do battle with a contender. Once mated, the pair will migrate back to their nesting ground to start their own family.’
So - if you loved the Jurassic Park movies and the recent Jurassic World global blockbuster, not only does Melbourne Museum have the Jurassic World exhibition, but you can see the Walking With Dinosaurs extravaganza at IMAX Melbourne for an unmissably special price.
