New Jersey beachgoers will be able to float among the creatures of the Atlantic Ocean next month, while taking in the thrilling shark-based film JAWS.
Brigantine's famous beach The Cove will host the event Aug. 25, allowing guests to watch the film from the sand, on a boat, or while relaxing in the murky ocean waters.
The Brigantine Chamber of Commerce was in charge of organizing the plans to display the film on an 18-feet wide LED digital screen with theater sound.
"Nationally, there have been other venues that have shown the film in a water setting, but each of those has been in an area such as a lake or river. We are one of the first examples in the country of holding an event, such as this in tidal waters...it should be very exciting," Event Coordinator Angela Reynolds said about the setting.
Since hitting movie theaters in the summer of 1975, "Jaws" has become a classic. This outdoor, oceanfront display will fully immerse moviegoers.
"We pride ourselves in Brigantine for being known for thinking outside the box to offer fun, innovative events, such as our highly popular Eagles Tailgate Parties on the Beach and our Annual Luau. We are very fortunate that our City continually supports our goal of building tourism and maximizing exposure for our town," Reynolds said.
The film will begin at 7 p.m. on The Cove beach, but guests are encouraged to arrive by 6:30 due to a large anticipated turn-out. Although the event is free, organizers request that you register at www.brigjaws.eventbrite.com.
