Overview

In the nearly 40 years since its release, there was never a movie that was as anticipated as the release of Peter Benchley's "Jaws". For one thing, we were promised something we had not seen in a movie before - and that was people being devoured by a monstrous fish, but also we wondered how in heck could it could even be filmed. Since it's release, books and documentaries explained all that, but what was it like to SEE the movie on opening day? How did the audience react during crucial scenes? How was it possible that going to a movie in and of itself could be an experience you would always remember?

Charles Moran has hopefully answered those questions. With this essay, Charles has made use of a hobby that many people said was a waste of time and money and prevented him from fulfilling his potential - and that is the hobby of a movie geek. Cause within this text, he explains to people too young to know what exactly it was like to see a movie in the days when 70mm, Stereophonic Sound, and an occasional 3D were considered special and people would line up hours before start time to be able to be amongst the first to experience a big release. It's a essay that can be enjoyed by fans of the movie "Jaws" and any budding movie geek who is curious about just what it was like to see a movie back in "those days"........
