...was showing at a theater near me for one night only. How could I pass that up! Still scary, still funny, still awesome. What a treat to see this on the big screen for the first time in over thirty years. Excellent!!!

Great to see a classic from 1975 on the big screen with a remastered pictured and sound. I saw this when I was 8 and it was nice to bring my 15 year old daughter and 5 year old son for this. They both enjoyed it. It was a one night only deal from cinemark and they have more schedule classics for the future. If all the classics are remastered with beautiful picture and excellent sound its worth it to go back to the big screen.

Jaws is not about a killer shark. Rather, "[Jaws is] really about a guy who is sort of dealing with his place in the world — his masculinity, with his family, how he’s gonna, you know, make it work in this new town." JJ Abrams. Though Jaws is not kid friendly, this is not your average "killer animal" film. Great characters. Depth. Humor. Thrills. Adventure.
And that's just the first half of the movie! The entire second half of the film takes place exculsively at sea exploring the dynamic between the 3 heroes. And it works so well. Brody the amateur, Hooper the scientist and Quint the salty sea-dog.
Jaws brings us some of the greatest moments in the history of cinema. A must see. One of my favorite movies. Maybe even my favorite movie.

Enjoyed seeing Jaws on the big screen for the first time since it's 1975 debut. I can still remember the day we all rode our bikes to the theatre downtown to see it and the excitement it brought.
The movie delivered again! I love that the old movies are being digitally re-done so we can enjoy them once again. The next three Wednesdays you can see other Spielberg films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T. and Schindler's List.
Go and enjoy!

John Williams's unforgettable score and Spielberg's clever mounting of suspense recall the best of Hitchcock, and Scheider, Dreyfuss and Shaw make up an unlikely but appealing trio of protagonists. What "Psycho" did for the shower, "Jaws" does for the ocean. Be sure to get the new 30th Anniversary edition- the movie looks flawless.
