Tuesday Movie: Jaws (1975)
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
You’re gonna need a bigger boat. We will be showing the classic thriller Jaws (1975), the movie that made a whole generation afraid to go in the water.
When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.
This movie is rated PG (though in our opinion is quite gruesome) and is intended for adults and mature teens. Children under the age of 13 may attend only if accompanied by an adult. This program is free and movie-goers may bring their own snacks and covered non-alcoholic beverages.
Movies are sponsored by the Friends of the DeKalb Public Library.
