The original Jaws was just that: original. A big-budget, masterfully-created update of 1950s monster movies made by a then fledgling director named Steven Spielberg, its record breaking box office haul and the public mania that followed ushered in the beginning of the blockbuster era that still holds precedent today. With that kind of success who wouldn’t ask for more? Jaws ended up spawning three sequels released through the ‘70s and ‘80s, each one more strange and implausible than the next. Jaws 3-D is one of those: strange and implausible, but also cheesy and fun. And don’t forget the best part: IT’S IN 3-D! Co-written by original Jaws scribe Carl Gottlieb, this shark story takes place at a Florida marine park that features underwater walkway aquariums where visitors get to intermingle with sea life that feels like it’s swimming right at your face. When a great white shark enters the confines and begins munching on the staff, it’s up to Mike Brody (Dennis Quaid), the facility director, to convince his bosses to shut the place down. But when do the higher-ups ever choose people’s lives over profit? The answer is: never! As the hungry shark runs rampant the body count rises as terror abounds just a few inches from your nose, in glorious 3-D! Don’t miss this rare, authentic 3-D screening of this fun ‘80s B-movie classic! 3-D glasses will be provided!
