Showcase Cinemas Event Cinema Presents “Jaws” @ Showcase Cinemas Warwick, Quaker Lane
Aug 23 @ 7:30 pm

Watch out! Steven Spielberg’s 1975 American classic, Jaws is back in on the big screen at Showcase Cinemas, as part of the Event Cinema program. Watch as a great white shark that haunted your dreams as a kid arrives and wreaks havoc on the shores of a New England beach town. Will a part-time sheriff, a marine biologist and an old seafarer be able to hunt the monster down? They’re going to need a big boat.

As if you needed another reason to buy your tickets now, Showcase is partnering with Narraganset Beer to bring Jaws fans something special for the Bring Backs screening. Guests at participating theatres can sip on vintage Narraganset Beer (in the 1975 retro cans featured in the film) while witnessing one of the greatest thrillers of all time!

Keep an eye on Showcase Cinemas social media pages for a special giveaway and the chance to win an exclusive merch pack including: Jaws-Narragansett beach towel, t-shirt, Captain Quint pin, a 1975 Narragansett stress can and a Narragansett tote bag.

Visit showcasecinemas.com to reserve your tickets to see “Jaws” today.

Showcase Cinemas Bring Backs is an Event Cinema series celebrating cinema by bringing back movie favorites each month for audiences to enjoy again.
