About the film:
Immerse yourself in one of the greatest summer suspense thrillers of all time!
An Official Selection of San Sebastian International Film Festival and winner of three Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 film Jaws (1975) was the most successful motion picture of its time and inspired a generation of filmmakers.
Based on Peter Benchley’s novel inspired by the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916, the film features the iconic animatronic shark (named Bruce) and an unforgettable score from John Williams. In 2001, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
When an insatiable great white shark terrorizes the townspeople of Amity Island, the police chief, an oceanographer and a grizzled shark hunter seek to destroy the blood-thirsty beast.
About the filmmaker:
Steven Spielberg, often considered one of the most popular and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema, inspired audiences and future storytellers with his science-fiction and adventure blockbusters—like Jaws (1975), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Jurassic Park (1993) and the Indiana Jones films—as well as more serious films addressing the Holocaust, the Transatlantic slave trade, war, and terrorism. He won the Academy Award for Best Director for Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998), and has also been awarded a Kennedy Center honor, a Cecil B. DeMille Award, and an AFI Life Achievement Award. In recent years, his musical adaptation West Side Story (2021) received seven nominations at the 94th Academy Awards and The Fabelmans (2022) won the People’s Choice Award at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival.See our upcoming films
