SM Family Weekend Movie Presents ‘Dino Time’ this November

Travel back in time at the age of the dinosaurs with SM Family Day’s featured movie “Dino Time” that will play on select weekends of November 19, 20, 26 and 27 at all SM theatres nationwide.


In the movie “Dino Time,” a young adventurous boy named Ernie needs an escape. His mom, Sue, is a strict disciplinarian, his little sister, Julia, tattles on him every chance she gets, and he just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. When Ernie and his best friend Max slip past security to check out the Dinosaur Museum’s top-secret fossil exhibit, Julia sets off the burglar alarm. A group of bumbling guards recklessly pursue the panicked boys, who are finally caught after Ernie’s rocketboard launches them head-first into a priceless set of dinosaur fossils. Ernie is swiftly grounded, but he sneaks away to the house next door, where Max, with the help of his genius father, has invented a sleek, egg-shaped contraption that he believes—despite countless failed experiments—can travel through time. Suddenly, Julia bursts in to bust the two boys again, and in the ensuing chaos, the time machine whirs to life and closes its doors on the three arguing kids.

After a violent jolt, the hydraulic doors hiss open to reveal a gorgeous green valley. A shadow passes overhead, and the kids look up to see the bewildered face of a living, breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex. The huge dinosaur nuzzles them softly, and Ernie realizes that they’re not food-they’re family. The egg-shaped time machine has landed in its nest, and the dinosaur thinks the human children are hers.

Max and Julia are scared stiff, but as long as they’re not being eaten, Ernie welcomes the vacation from his mother’s authority. Unfortunately, the time machine has lost a vital component in the crash, and the three kids can’t get home without it. Ernie finds it in the grass, but rather than tell his friends, he hides it in his pocket for safe keeping. “Just one day of fun. What’s the worst that could happen?” he tells himself. Unfortunately, when a group of egg-poaching dinosaurs sneak away with the time machine, Ernie’s question is answered.
