Trapped by a thunderstorm. We all thought the rumbling was from an adjacent theater, even though this is Film Forum and they don’t show especially rumbly movies. Jurassic Park rumbled a lot: I remember its rumbling more than I remember whatever I was seeing, however long ago that was. (It was Hot Shots Part Deux! in all likelihood.) A far-off hope that maybe I could sneak into this secret screening of Jurassic Park they were having at Film Forum. I was there to see a double feature of Sugarland Express and Play Misty For Me, so the idea that they might sneak in another studio shadow-classic wasn’t totally nuts or anything. Illogical and rosy, yes, but not bonkers, no.
But the rumbling turned out to be a thunderstorm so now it’s just me and the retired and the infirm and all these helpless nerdbeards are standing around waiting for a thunderstorm to stop.
