The original Jaws is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and Alamo Drafthouse is taking the experience to scarier depths!
Back in 2002, Alamo Drafthouse invited the brave people of Austin to join them for a special screening of Jaws in which the audience had the terrifying pleasure of watching the iconic movie, all while floating on a lake. After a highly successful and talked about event, they’ve decided to bring it back!
Shown on a giant outdoor Rolling Roadshow that will be set up on land facing a murky lake, brave movie goers can yet again fell the exciting and fear of watching the mighty beast all while sitting in his backyard. Everyone who attends must sign a waiver as inflatable inner tubes will serve as seats, providing the experience of a lifetime.This year’s ‘Jaws on the Water’ takes place at the Texas Ski Ranch, and attendees are asked only to bring a bathing suit. Those who are too afraid to watch Jaws while floating in the lake are invited to sit on chairs set up on the beach, though all chairs and surrounding shore area is available on a first come, first served basis. If you are thinking of attending this once in a lifetime event, you might as well go all the way. It has been said divers are hired to “help” make the experience all the more terrifying. So, watch those toes!
Previously shown last Saturday, ‘Jaws on the Water’ returns to Texas next Saturday July 25th, and July 26th at 8:30pm. Two new additional dates, August 8th and 9th, have recently been added though many general admission tickets have already sold out, but you can still grab a VIP ticket, so if you are in the area or plan to go, get yours fast!
