Bristol Zoo will be opening its gates on the 29th July for a roar-some silent cinema experience. 

Bring your family & friends to the Zoo along with a blanket, cushion or chair to enjoy two amazing dinosaur blockbusters on the big screen and to explore Dinomania – an animatronic dinosaur exhibit that is taking over the Zoo this summer.

Tickets available:

Film showing: Walt Disney’s Dinosaur at 2pm 

Ticket includes Zoo entry from 12pm

Explore Bristol Zoo, discover Dinomania and then let your little ones imaginations run wild with our family-friendly showing of Walt Disney’s, Dinosaur.

Dinosaur tells the story of Aladar, a young dinosaur raised by a family of lemurs. Their world is turned upside-down in a thrilling sequence when meteors strike, destroying their green island home and turning it into a desert wasteland. The lemur family and Aladar team up with a dinosaur troop roaming the mainland deserts looking for the lush nesting grounds. Follow them on this exciting adventure!

Film showing: Jurassic World at 5.30pm/8.30pm

Ticket includes Zoo entry from 4pm/6.30pm

Stroll around the Zoo grounds on a summer’s evening, uncovering our prehistoric new residents on your way before making yourself comfy and diving into this unique silent cinema experience. 

Join us for the fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park series – Jurassic World. The Jurassic World theme park is both a holiday destination and habitat for genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the malicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the creature escapes confinement, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinosaurs to run wild around the island. Now everything has gone wrong, can the tourists be saved from an all-out prehistoric assault?
