The sad destruction of the JAWS Ride at Universal Studios Florida continues. The Ride was closed on January 2nd, presumably to be replaced by a new Harry Potter attraction.

The JAWS Ride: Final Voyage 1/2/2012

 

The date was the last day of the ride, which is being demolished to make room for a new attraction. We interviewed JAWS fans, a former Skipper of the Ride and watched the ride wait times increase throughout the day.

JAWSFest: The Tribute Event Aug 9-12

There is going to be another JAWSFEST!  JAWSFEST: The Tribute will be held August 9-12, 2012 on Martha’s Vineyard, MA, the filming location of the original JAWS. JAWSFEST: The Tribute is being produced by MV Promotions Network, directed by Susan Sigel Goldsmith.  The upcoming event sounds great for JAWS fans:

This three-day fan-centric event will explore the experiences, filming, and memories from the making of JAWS. Our tribute will concentrate on the men and women of JAWS who have passed, with special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider, and Robert Shaw. We are inviting fans, families, cast, and crew to join us in Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) to share their personal stories, memorabilia, and experiences. This event will explore how the making of JAWS has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974 and how the blockbuster film they created continues to impact lives today. 9 am to 10 pm various Island locations.

More information about the event can be found here:

Check this out – the legendary Alamo Drafthouse will be showing JAWS on the water:

UPDATE! The Friday July 2 show sold out in record time, so they added a Saturday, July 3 show as well! TIX ON SALE TUES 6/22 at NOON!

The most legendary Rolling Roadshow event in history is BACK!

“We’ve been doing Rolling Roadshows for years now, showcasing the finest films under the night sky in glorious 35mm, and Austin has been home to many of our very greatest events. But when people reminisce about Roadshow history, one show comes up without fail: The Ultimate JAWS Experience!”

“Well, we’re fearlessly returning to the depths with a full-scale white-knuckle no-babies FLOATING JAWS SCREENING where YOU can watch the most terrifying aquatic horror film in history while adrift on an inner tube (supplied by us) in beautiful, deep, dark Lake Travis. We hereby guarantee the most heart-stopping screening on Earth, with a few added surprises to make sure you’re awake and alert. Plus, every ticket includes a bowl of shark gazpacho, just like mom used to make.”

“This event is limited, and considering the 2004 screening was the movie event of the year, we recommend you nab those tickets quick!”
