Tue 6.9 Twenty-two years after “Jurassic Park,” Isla Nublar now features a dinosaur theme park. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly. Chris Pratt stars.
GET PASSES: “Jurassic World” (rated PG-13) opens June 12, but a promotional screening of the action-adventure will take place in south Charlotte at 7 p.m. Tuesday. The Charlotte Observer is giving away 80 admit-two passes to this screening; pick up one beginning at 8 a.m. Friday in the lobby of the Charlotte Observer building, 600 S.
