New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

May 20, 21, 22 (May Long Weekend) & 25

Thursday May 25 is Brewery Night with Something in the Water! Arrive before 8:30pm to enjoy free beer samples & meet Colonel Troutman in person!

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.

Perhaps the most perfectly constructed horror story in our time.

Hollywood Reporter

Jaws is a sensationally effective action picture, a scary thriller that works all the better because it’s populated with characters that have been developed into human beings we get to know and care about.
