Ninety years before Steven Spielberg’s JURASSIC PARK, Arthur Conan Doyle’s dinosaur adventure was brought to the big screen for the first time. Join us for an adventure across continents to the land that time forgot, featuring all your favourite dinosaurs, the terrifying ‘apeman’ and a few volcanoes for good measure. Special effects pioneer Willis O’Brien’s stop-motion animation still looks magnificent on the big screen – he started work on his masterpiece, King Kong, just a few months after the release of THE LOST WORLD – with live, improvised piano accompaniment by Jonny Best.
“As soon as the thrilling sequences are reached, where the explorers are seen in the supposed habitat of the living dinosauri, brontosauri, allosauri and other prehistoric monsters, there is no end of excitement.” – New York Times
“The main attraction, is Willis H. O’Brien’s pre-King Kong stop motion monster effects.” – Empire Magazine
