4th Annual Cabot Screening!$9.75 - $11.75 Buy Tickets
It’s that time of the year again: Summer is right around the corner, and The Cabot is doing its part to get you ready. For the 4th year in a row, we’re happy to present our annual screening of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws!
Based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic thriller set the standard for the New Hollywood popcorn blockbuster while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. One summer night on Amity Island, Chrissie decides to take a moonlight swim while her friends party on the beach and she disappears. When pieces of her wash ashore, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but Mayor Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) refuses, afraid to lose the tourist money coming to the island during the upcoming 4th of July weekend. After the shark dines on a few more victims, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit, and Brody and newly arrived ichthyologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) join forces with flinty old salt Quint (Robert Shaw), the island’s most successful shark hunter. The three ride off into the Atlantic on Quint’s boat, soon coming face to teeth with the enemy.
