Jaws Trilogy at Aero Theatre - Watch the Trailer

The Ameircan Cinematheque presents a triple bill of JAWS, JAWS 2, and JAWS 3-D (not shown in 3-D, unfortunately). Because, sometimes, you just can't stay away from the water, no matter how much you know you should.

From the website:

JAWS, 1975, Universal, 124 min. Director Steven Spielberg rocketed to the head of the class with this terrific mixture of suspense, humor and modern Americana, based on the Peter Benchley best-seller. Roy Scheider is excellent as a New England sheriff confronting crowds of sunbathers, self-serving local politicians and -- most importantly -- a monstrous Great White Shark over a July 4th weekend. With Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss.

JAWS 2, 1978, 116 min., Universal, Dir. Jeannot Szwarc, Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Roy Scheider, reprising his role as Martin Brody, the hydrophobic Police Chief of Amity, is joined by wife Ellen (Lorainne Gary) - four years later a Man-eating Great White shark is again terrorizing the waters in this second suspenseful maritime outing, scored by John Williams.

JAWS 3, 1983, 99 min., Universal, Dir. Joe Alves. Michael Brody (Dennis Quaid, in his first lead role) chief engineer for Sea World is the eldest son of police chief Brody. When completion of a new exhibit is threatened by the sudden appearance of a Great White Shark, Michael and his brother (John Putch) attempt to hunt it down. Joining in the hunt is Lou Gossett Jr. as Calvin Bouchard, the park’s owner. Originally released as 3D in the theatrical release, screened NOT in 3D.
