How much of a croc of… is this crocodilian masterpiece of dinosaur proportions? Dinosaur expert Jason Poole from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will be on hand to help with the dispelling some of the Hollywood «science» on display in this zany horror flick.

A picturesque lake in backwoods Maine is hardly the place you’d expect to find a giant, saltwater crocodile, but that’s just the first of many surprises in action thriller #LakePlacid. The fearsome reptile is no ordinary croc—it’s a 30-foot long behemoth with a taste for human flesh. It’s up to a team led by Game officer Jack Wells (Bill Pullman), grumpy sheriff Hank Keough (#BrendanGleeson), and paleontologist Kelly Scott (#BridgetFonda) to put an end to the creature’s reign of terror with their limbs intact. Darkly comedic, gleefully gory, and knowingly ridiculous, this landlocked update of Jaws will have viewers rethinking their upcoming Maine vacations and seeing Betty White in an entirely new light.

Screening is followed by presentation with Dinosaur Hall Coordinator at the The Academy of Natural Sciences Jason Poole.

Tickets | $9 / $5 for PFS Members | $8 Students / Seniors
