To celebrate the 12th Jameson Founded in 2003, the Dublin International Film Festival sets the agenda of the year with its programme of outstanding Irish and international film., Richard Dreyfuss will attend an exclusive Jameson Cult Film Club screening of the 1975 Spielberg classic, Jaws on Tuesday 18th February. Guests will also be treated to a post screening Q&A with the Oscar winning actor which will be hosted by radio personality Rick O’Shea.
Following on from last year’s highly successful screenings of Predator, Die Hard, Intermission and LA Confidential, Jameson are kicking off the 2014 series of Jameson Cult Film Clubs with the iconic shark thriller, Jaws. This interactive screening promises to transport the audience right back to the sleepy holiday town of Amity and into the ‘jaws’ of this legendary killing machine for an unforgettable viewing experience. The venue, which is only revealed to ticket holders, will be completely transformed into a series of sets from the movie, while live theatre and special effects timed perfectly with on-screen action will help to create an electric atmosphere throughout the screening.
Speaking about the Jaws legacy, Richard Dreyfuss said [quote]The fact is, when I first saw the film, it scared the hell out of me. To this day, I won’t walk off the beach into the water. I will however, scuba![/quote]
