Maritime Aquarium members and members of our Friends Society had an exclusive first crack at purchasing tickets to be part of a special event on Sun., June 14: a visit by Richard Dreyfuss for a special 40th-anniversary presentation of “Jaws” on our six-story movie screen. Public Sales opened March 2nd.
The Academy Award-winning actor will share his experiences in playing marine biologist Matt Hooper in "Jaws," and take your questions prior to an evening screening of the film.
Only 310 tickets are available. Previous such events featuring Gene Wilder (for “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”) and for Bill Nye the Science Guy sold out almost entirely through exclusive members-only sales, so ... consider becoming an Aquarium member or renewing your membership now for an opportunity to get tickets for the “Jaws”/ Dreyfuss event.
Here are the ticket options:
• a private VIP party at 5:30 p.m. with Richard Dreyfuss for up to 50 people, plus reserved seating for the 7 p.m. in-theater talk with Dreyfuss and the movie screening. $200 for members, $225 for non-members. SORRY! VIP SOLD OUT!
• the 7 p.m. in-theater talk and movie screening. $60 for members, $65 for non-members. SORRY! SOLD OUT!
• a 1 p.m. screening of "Jaws" on our six-story screen (no Richard Dreyfuss). $11.50 for adults, $10.50 youths & seniors, $9.50 children. TICKETS AVAILABLE!
Based on the book by Peter Benchley and directed by Stephen Spielberg, “Jaws,” of course, was the first modern blockbuster, quickly becoming the highest-grossing movie ever (at the time). One writer said “Jaws” wasn’t just a movie, “it was an event, and its success changed forever the way Hollywood marketed films.”
