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!
