RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – A blast from the past at the box office. Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” returns to theaters Friday, this time in 3D.

The 1993 blockbuster tells the tale of a reserve off the coast of Central America where dinosaurs have been cloned.

Of course the premiere itself is a clone from 20 years ago, when WTVR asked people living in Richmond how a timeless fascination with the prehistoric would impact ticket sales.

The film’s June 1993 release shattered a number of box office records and kicked off the glorious second act of Spielberg’s illustrious career. It might have helped that a movie only cost you $3.75 back then.

You can watch our report from June 14, 1993 below — check out other older stories in the CBS 6 Video Vault:

Jurassic Park 3D is rated PG 13.
