Film: There's some fin in the Greenwich water
Saturday 18 August 2012
The 1975 movie Jaws can be in people's thoughts when they are paddling out to sea on a lilo. But you don't have to go all the way to a holiday resort for a bit of terror. Next month the Thames will have its own in the form of a shark-fin gliding through the water, before a screening of the fully restored blockbuster.
Greenwich Yacht Club will be transformed into Amity Island, the location in Jaws, with its own 1970s-inspired BBQ on the beach and the Jaws theme tune blaring from the towpath. There will be various re-enanctments to do with the film, including a council meeting to discuss closing the beach, as part of the Jameson Cult Film Club's new season of "bringing cult films to life", which are screened across the UK.
'Jaws' at Greenwich Yacht Club, London SE10 on 5 September. Free tickets from facebook.com/jamesoncultfilmclub
