Amblin Entertainment was founded by Steven Spielberg and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall in 1981. It was named after Spielberg’s first film, Amblin’, released in 1968, and has produced sci-fi hits such as Gremlins, the Back to the Future Trilogy and our secret favourite, Men in Black. To celebrate the released of their latest film, Super 8, next month, we are taking a look at some of our favourite Amblin titles.

\r\n

The season kicked off already with a screening of E.T., which went down a storm and continues on Tuesday with Jurassic Park, the film that brought dinosaurs back from extinction in 1993. The film has amazing special effects, even for today’s standards, and features an awe-inspiring theme park full of living dinosaurs that have been brought back from the dead from their original DNA. Obviously, a theme park featuring real live dinosaurs in it isn’t the safest place to be and the film goes on from there….

\r\n

On Tuesday 26 July, our next Amblin film will be The Goonies. The perfect childhood swashbuckling adventure, a gang of kids from the “Goon Docks” discover a treasure map whilst escaping from some angry restaurant owners. After contending with deadly traps they come across One Eyed Willie’s pirate ship, The Inferno, in an underground cave. Full of spectacular thrills and effects, this screams classic Amblin all the way through.

\r\n

Then continuing the Amblin theme, we will be showing Who Framed Roger Rabbit on the 16 August as part of our Classic Tuesday series.
