Movie at the Symphony: <i>Jaws in Concert</i>







Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the concert hall…

The original summer movie blockbuster, with an Academy Award®-winning score that made John Williams a household name, Jaws is the ultimate film-with-live-orchestra experience!


Based on the best-selling novel by Peter Benchley and directed by Steven Spielberg, this masterpiece of suspense tells the tale of a small, New England seaside community terrorized by a predatory great white shark during the busiest weekend of the tourist season—the 4th of July. After several local residents are killed in the waters just off shore, it falls to three unlikely heroes – police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), marine scientist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and surly local sea captain Quint (Robert Shaw) – to hunt down and kill the beast before more lives are lost.

Despite a notoriously difficult ocean shoot with constant technical challenges, Jaws became the most successful movie of all time (until the release of Star Wars two years later), and Spielberg has often credited John Williams' iconic score with much of the film's success. Now for the first time, audiences will have the chance to experience the power of a live symphony orchestra performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.

In the words of Chief Brody… "You're gonna need a bigger boat!"

Boettcher Concert Hall is located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex at 14th and Curtis Streets in the heart of downtown Denver. It's easy to find and there are two large parking garages to the east and west of Boettcher. There are often multiple performances happening at DPAC at the same time, which leads to traffic congestion and lines to get into the parking garages. Be sure to leave plenty of time to get to DPAC—we don't want you to miss any of the music!?
