Jaws Open Air Cinema

West Country Waterpark have teamed up with Horizon Open Air Cinema to present Jaws Screened under a moonlit sky at The West Country Waterpark, Bristol.

About this event

Grab a blanket and wrap up warm to watch the Jaws under the moonlit sky, sitting on… THE WATER!!!! Yes this is a first (possibly in the UK)!

Film Starts shortly after sunset. Our Open Air Cinema is projected onto the screen. This means we must ensure it’s dark enough for you to see.

Film synopsis: When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.

Film certificate: 12A (under 16s to be accompanied by an adult)
