Jaws

On August 19th & 29th, join us for one of the greatest summer blockbusters of all time. Based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley, the August 19th (1pm) screening will be accompanied by a talk with his brother Nat Benchley, who will discuss the book, the movie, and the science of shark studies in the 21st century. This screening is presented in collaboration with Oblong Books.

“In its first five minutes Jaws grabs you somewhere beneath your sternum, and for nearly two hours it doesn’t let you go.” — Michael Sragow, Boston Globe, 1975
