RI Monthly presents Odeum Classic Films: Jaws

  • Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the Odeum! Beat the summer heat in the air conditioning, be like Quint and grab a Gansett, and watch the original "Summer Blockbuster" on the big screen at the Greenwich Odeum! When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.
