Blippi’s Big Dino Adventure – launching exclusively at Cinemark – sees Blippi and his best friend Meekah go on one of their biggest dinosaur adventures yet. When Blippi and Meekah run into Park Ranger Asher and his energetic dinosaur crew at T-Rex Ranch, Park Ranger Asher asks for their help in retrieving some missing dinosaur eggs. But, Blippi and Meekah must hurry to find and return all the eggs before they hatch! With a map in hand, they are off on their search, finding eggs in the most unexpected places, like a ball pit at an indoor playground. With just moments to spare, Blippi and Meekah return the eggs and celebrate the only way they know how, with a Dinosaur Dance!
Theater locations and ticket sales for Blippi’s Big Dino Adventure will be announced in July, with tickets available for purchase at Cinemark.com and on the Cinemark app.
