Third Thursday Movies: Jaws!

This month we're showing JAWS. Directed by Steven Spielberg in 1975, this summer American classic was once considered one of the greatest films ever made. It won several awards for music and editing, and became the highest-grossing film of all time until the release of Star Wars in 1977.
Apparently JAWS had a troublesome production, going over budget and past schedule. The mechanical sharks they used on-set would often malfunction, and so Spielburg decided to mostly "suggest" the shark's presence and impending appearance.

See this mastermind at work and while you're at it, grab a drink from our bar, a hot chicken sandwich, and cozy up with your favorite people.

Note: Start time may vary (we need to wait for it to get dark…)
