Dumont Dunes

For this week’s Cinema Science we take a look at the “Land of the Lost”, a remake of the Sid and Marty Kroft Saturday morning TV series of the same name. In Land of the Lost, explorers [Rick] Marshall, Will, and Holly survive the “greatest earthquake ever known” only to find themselves transported to an strange world filled with vengeful dinosaurs, alien technology, and the slow-witted but somehow menacing Sleestak. We’ll take a look at locations Dumont Dunes, Trona Pinnacles, and the La Brea Tar Pits.
