More Info IMDb

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.

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

It’s telling that Pixar guru John Lasseter counts Japanese Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki as his key influence.  If animation in the United States ever has a chance to be something more than instantly devalued as a “children’s” medium, it’s in their hands.

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
