Country of Origin
Part of the Film Fest on the Forth Strand
During the height of the summer tourist season, the resort town of Amity Island is terrorised by attacks from a great white shark. Three unlikely partners team up to hunt down the rogue killer beast and destroy it: the new chief of police from New York (Roy Scheider), a young university-educated oceanographer (Richard Dreyfuss), and a crusty old-time fisherman (Robert Shaw). Steven Spielberg's thriller, screening to celebrate its 45th anniversary, is a classic of its genre – tense and engrossing, with scares that will make you scream on schedule. Jaws as you’ve never seen it before: on the big screen at the edge of the Forth.
Recommended by our EIFF Youth team as essential viewing for 15-25 years old.
Seating at Film Fest on the Forth is done by socially distanced pods. When booking please select a pod that is relevant to your party size - you can choose either deck chairs or picnic-style seating on the ground. There must be an adult in each pod with children. Sometimes there may not be pods left that fit your party size, we're sorry for the disappointment!
