Memorial Day viewing!


I’m about to fire up my jaws Blu Ray to kick off the summer!
Anybody else?

reply

It hadn't occurred to me, but I like the suggestion! Maybe it's time that I sat my 9 year old son down to watch it. It'll save me trips to the beach.

I took my son when he was ten to our local playhouse during its annual Jaws viewing

Was looking forward to watching it on AMC or the other channels that usually air those types of movies this week leading into Memorial Day weekend but it hasn't been on at all. How can you not air Jaws to kick off the summer? Doesn't make sense.

reply

Agreed

It's been playing on Starz for the past two months. I've caught it several times. (including right now)

It’s really a Fourth of July movie, but, hell, summer is summer, so enjoy. I would put the chasing-Jaws-with-barrels-in-him scene on an loop on my store’s showcase home theater display on Independence Day and have a crowd three-deep around it all day long. It’s a rousing, rhapsodic chapter, and it’s family-friendly.

Grilling up any Mako shark steaks?

reply

I’m also going to see it on the big screen July 3rd

reply

Do you live in Massachusetts? If a theater on Martha’s Vineyard, where the movie was filmed, is screening it for the 4th, THAT is the place to be!

Just don’t go in the water.

Stamford ct Avon Theater
Would love to get to MV someday

Still no sign of a Jaws marathon coming and we are on July 1. Nothing all summer so far and nothing on the horizon either it appears at least on the AMC or IFC channels. Im upset about this.

reply

I've got it on right right now on EncoreWest.

reply

It's going to be all Jaws all day July 4th on Starz Encore. I believe it's a free channel. I believe all the Encore's are free. Have been for me with Xfinity cable for all these years. See if you get it.
Starts at 6;30 am central zone. Gonna go through the line-up twice and get one and two a third time before day ends.

All four have been playing on Encore channels for months now.

Enjoy

I don't get Encore or any of the movie channels anymore. But how its not on AMC or TCM this week is beyond me.

reply

Im back, ha. Since we aren't getting Jaws on "Shark Week" this will be the first summer I can ever remember Jaws will not be airing on any of the basic cable channels. Nothing on Memorial Day. Nothing on the 4th of July. Nothing on Shark Week. That's embarrassing. AMC im looking at you. Someone should be fired for this.

reply

AMC saw the posts. Thanks guys. Took a little longer to air this summer then what I would have liked but at least its on. While we're at it can you also start airing Deliverance as well? Id really appreciate it.
