Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" was a summer blockbuster and now you can relive the thrills all over again on Friday, June 29th at midnight. "Jaws" will be presented on the Tivoli Theatre's newly enhanced 4k Digital Projection system, located at 5021 Highland Ave. in downtown Downers Grove.

Movie admission is only $5, and tickets can be purchased at the Tivoli box office.

Filmed in 1975, "Jaws" is the classic thriller directed by Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley's novel of the same name. In the film, a giant great white shark arrives on the shores of a New England beach resort and wreaks havoc with bloody attacks on swimmers until a part-time sheriff teams up with a marine biologist and an old seafarer to hunt the monster down. Well received by critics, "Jaws" became the highest grossing film in history at the time. It won several awards for its soundtrack and editing, and it is often cited as one of the greatest films of all time.
