Description

FRIDAY JULY 5 DOUBLE FEATURE

JAWS 2:30, 7:00
Police chief Roy Scheider, oceanographer Richard Dreyfuss, and salty hunter Robert Shaw join forces to battle a great white shark that’s been chewing up the locals off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard. Amidst the New Hollywood revolution of the ‘70s, Steven Spielberg’s shockingly effective adaptation of Peter Benchley’s best-seller altered the shape of blockbusters to come. Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, and the music of John Williams co-star. (1975, 124 min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ ROLLERCOASTER 4:45, 9:20
Timothy Bottoms is a mild-mannered psycho turning America’s rollercoasters into explosive death traps as part of his million-dollar extortion scheme, and George Segal is the inspector who must deliver the cash before his ultimate midway meltdown. Fans of 1970s disaster films about towering infernos and capsizing cruise ships will enjoy much mayhem here, plus old pro Richard Widmark, a token celebrity cameo from Henry Fonda, an early role for Helen Hunt, and a fantastic live performance by Sparks! (1977, 119 min, HD digital)
