Catch Jaws This Weekend At The International Museum Of Art
Summer is blockbuster movie time. It's the time that movie studios turn out super hero movies, romantic comedies, and the movies they hope you'll go see again and again. The movie that is considered the first real, actual summer blockbuster movie, Jaws, will be shown on the big screen this weekend at the International Museum of Art.
Everyone knows the story of Jaws. A big shark goes on a feeding frenzy in the waters off a New England tourist town. The town's officials don't want to freak people out ahead of a big holiday weekend but the police chief knows that he has to get rid of the shark. He, an ichthyologist, and a tough old sea captain go after the shark, finally killing it, but paying a high price.
And there's a lot of blood. And scary music. And one iconic scene of a girl who gets eaten by the shark while skinny-dipping.
I'll be honest. I've seen this movie once when it originally came out and have never seen it again. I don't like scary movies and this is a scary as hell movie. But it's being shown on the big screen and if you've only seen it on a tv screen, you should see it in all its bloody glory at the International.
The movie is free and the Museum has fantastically priced concessions so you can take someone with you so you won't sit there screaming alone and probably only spend about $20 for the whole afternoon. Make sure you check out the rest of the museum after the movie. It's gorgeous and will take your breath away.
WHEN: Saturday, June 8, 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: International Museum of Art, 1211 Montana
