Dinosaurs have played leading roles in all kinds of Hollywood movies, but just how accurate are those portrayals?

It's a topic the downtown Raleigh museum will tackle in a special event from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Sept. 7, as part of its Science in the Movies series. The event is free and open to all ages. (The museum will even provide the popcorn).

During the program, you'll watch clips from some favorite dino-films, such as "Jurassic Park," "Jurassic World" and "The Good Dinosaur," along with "Gertie the Dinosaur" from 1914 and "The Lost World" from 1925. A panel of paleontologists and film scholars will discuss the clips and answer questions.

The museum's website has more information.
