With JAWS, Steven Spielberg redefined the summer movie experience. We know a little something about redefining movie experiences at the Alamo Drafthouse so JAWS naturally holds a special place in the hearts of our theaters' staff. Universal Studios has released a stunning new 4K digital transfer of this classic survival story and we’ll be happier than a Great White in chum-infested waters to be presenting this new digital print on our state-of-the-art Sony 4K projectors.

A shark is prowling the waters off Amity Island and it is up to police chief Martin Brody to hunt down and kill this deadly predator. What more is there to say about this American classic? It has everything you look for in a movie - kids in peril, drunken sea shanties and Richard Dreyfuss in a cage. If all that wasn't enough - how about this? Thanks to the 4K digital restoration of the film, you’ll see and hear JAWS like never before – just don’t blame us when you develop trepidations about a trip to the beach this summer.
