Free Summer Cinema
Spend Friday night under the stars at the free Summer Cinema at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. This year’s film series theme is “Sun, Surf and Cinema” and will feature feel-good, beach-inspired movies that span multiple decades and genres. 
 
Directed by Academy Award-winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the way audiences experience movies. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history.
