Announcing a new Meetup for Los Angeles Film Enthusiasts!
What: JAWS@ The Hollywood Forever Cemetery, July 4th @ 5-6PM
When: July 4,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Well, I simply love seeing films at the cemetery! Thus far this year, there have been some great selections. This 4th of July is a must see: JAWS!!!!!!!!!.
Here's the lowdown on the cemetery. Tickets are $10 and you pay when they open the gates (CASH). If you get there early, there is plenty of street parking on Santa Monica Blvd. If you get there late, you will park in the cemetery, and the fee is $5.
***Note, that if you arrive late, it will be nearly impossible to find us. Moreover, many of these films sell out.
For those of you who have never been, yes, this film screening is in the cemetery. They project the film on the side of a mausoleum. Fear not, the seating area is not amongst the grave stones. Bring your favorite food/drinks and of course, a blanket. LOW BACK chairs are permitted (stadium chairs), but not regular lawn chairs. You can purchase one at Target. Think about it people, how could anyone see the film if you are sitting in a chair?? The film starts at 8:30 pm and the gates open at 7:00 pm. People start lining up at the gate for these films quite early (4:30 pm). The closer you are to the gate, the better locations you get for your blankets, and the more time you have to picnic. I will be in line around 5pm, so look for me near the front. For those of you who don't know me, I will have a purple balloon with me. Hopefully several of you will join me early in line, so that we can rush in when the gates open and stake out some good turf. I can't do it alone. If you arrive later and need to find out group... look for my balloon, give me a call at:[masked], and finally, I try to always sit in the center of the screen just a couple rows back from the front. Finally, it's going to get chilly once the sun goes down, so bring a jacket.
***Everyone bring some food, and we can set up a big potluck dinner. Its should be alot of fun. Film Summary:
Is this necessary?!?!
Based on Peter Benchley's best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg's 1975 shark saga set the standard for the New Hollywood popcorn blockbuster while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. One early summer night on fictional Atlantic resort Amity Island, Chrissie decides to take a moonlight skinny dip while her friends party on the beach. Yanked suddenly below the ocean surface, she never returns. When pieces of her wash ashore, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) suspects the worst, but Mayor Vaughn (Murray Hamilton), mindful of the lucrative tourist trade and the approaching July 4th holiday, refuses to put the island on a business-killing shark alert. After the shark dines on a few more victims, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from visiting ichthyologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, Brody and Hooper join forces with flinty old salt Quint (Robert Shaw), the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White--especially since the price is right. The three ride off on Quint's boat "The Orca," soon coming face to teeth with the enemy. ~
