Seeing this film this July 4th is a great way celebrate our national holiday and the 40th anniversary of this classic movie at the same time.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2015
Los Angeles outdoor movies event series Eat|See|Hear will be in Santa Monica 4th of July weekend, specifically Saturday, July 4, to showcase the 1975 blockbuster, Jaws. This event will be held at Santa Monica High School’s Memorial Greek Amphitheatre, located at 601 Pico Blvd. Showtime is at 8:30 p.m.
Steven Spielberg directed this classic thriller, about a gigantic great white shark that brings terror to the small New England coastal town of Amity. The film stars Roy Scheider as Police Chief Martin Brody and Richard Dreyfuss as the marine scientist, Matt Hooper, who spearhead a mission to hunt down the killer shark. They enlist the help of a crusty, old shark hunter by the name of Quint, who is played by Robert Shaw.
Jaws debuted in theaters on June 20, 1975. In the weeks that followed, it grossed more than $100 million at the box office, setting the record for the highest grossing film of its time and becoming Hollywood’s first “summer movie blockbuster.”
“Jaws is an American cultural phenomenon,” says Sharon Sperber, co-owner of Eat|See|Hear. “Seeing this film this July 4th is a great way celebrate our national holiday and the 40th anniversary of this classic movie at the same time.”
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The LA-based indie band, Suspect, will take the stage at 7:30 pm. Suspect mixes a wide variety of influences into the project creating a heavy and driving sound that captures their love for old school funk and soul as well their appreciation for blues and rock. With influences that range anywhere from artists such as Parliament to Jeff Buckley, Suspect has created a persona that not only digs deep into the emotion of every story they tell but that also transcends the story into your body with a groove that will force you to get down.
As usual, plenty of food trucks will be on hand, including Gastrobus, Wings n Waffles, Tornado Potato, Grilled Cheese Truck, Doner KeBab, Steel City Sandwich, Sweet Arlenes, Brasil Kiss and Coolhaus. Food trucks will be open for business at 5:30 p.m.
Parking available at the Civic Center Parking Structure, located at 333 Civic Center Drive, for a flat fee of $5. This structure is across the street from the high school. “There are also plenty of bike racks at the Civic Center where you can park your bike for free, if you decide to bike in,” Sperber says. Movie goers are asked to enter the amphitheater through the walkway on 4th Street, between the track and the DoubleTree Hotel.
