JAWS (1975)

2hr 4min / Rated PG / Adventure/Horror/Thriller

Sat, May 3 - 10:00pm

Tampa Theatre welcomes SharkCon to Tampa with a special late-night showing of JAWS!

When pieces of a missing swimmer wash ashore on Amity Island, the Mayor of the quaint Atlantic resort town demands the predator be caught before it can ruin the 4th of July tourist season. Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) and visiting ichthyologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) suspect the worst, and team up with the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White – the salty Quint (Robert Shaw). But when the enemy finally shows itself, it turns out to be a more formidable foe than any of them had imagined.

The film will be introduced by special guest Stuart Cove, who was the stunt diver and "shark wrangler" on the James Bond feature film "For Your Eyes Only" staring Roger Moore. He went on to serve as lead underwater coordinator for the 1983 Bond thriller "Never Say Never Again," starring Sean Connery and Kim Bassinger, both whom Stuart certified as divers during production.

Stuart is in town as part of Shark-Con 2014: An Ocean Conservation and Water Sports Convention at the Tampa Convention Center May 3-4. To come see Stuart and the stars of Discovery Channel's Shark Week and National Geographic, as well as many other shark exhibits and vendors, visit www.shark-con.com for tickets and more information.
