Jurassic Park fans soon will be able to hear the film’s wondrous score like they never have before.

Throughout the month of November, the 1993 Steven Spielberg film will be shown in theaters with live orchestras playing John Williams’ Grammy-nominated score as part of Film Concerts Live.

Williams earned his 50th Oscar nomination Thursday for his Star Wars: The Force Awakens score. He last won a statuette for Schindler’s List, another Spielberg production.

Last summer’s Jurassic World saw Michael Giacchino (Up, Lost) compose the feature instead of Williams. But Giacchino knew he had to nod to the original score at some point in the film.

“In our initial conversations, [director] Colin [Trevorrow] and I talked about where are we going to put John Williams’ theme, because we both love that music so much, and that music, to me, is Jurassic Park,” Giacchino told EW last June. “There was no way to do the movie without that somewhere.”
