Richard Dreyfuss and JAWS on February 18th, 2014

12th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival – Richard Dreyfuss – Jameson Cult Film Club and JAWSJameson are kicking off the 2014 series of Jameson Cult Film Clubs with the iconic shark thriller, JAWS. As part of the 12th Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, Hollywood star Richard Dreyfuss will attend and take part in an exclusive onstage Q&A at the Jameson Cult Film Club screening of JAWS on Tuesday 18th February.

Speaking about the Jaws legacy, Richard Dreyfuss said … 

The fact is, when I first saw the film, it scared the hell out of me. To this day, I won’t walk off the beach into the water. I will however, scuba!”

If the screening of the Predator last year is anything to go by this month’s interactive Jameson Cult Film Club screening will be magical. Lucky ticket holders and guests will be transported back in time to the sleepy holiday town of Amity and into the ‘JAWS’ of the legendary killing machine for an unforgettable viewing experience. The venue, which is kept secret until the event night will be transformed into a series of sets from the movie, while live theatre and special effects timed perfectly with on-screen action will help to create an electric atmosphere throughout the screening. After the screening and drum roll please … Oscar winning actor Richard Dreyfuss will take to the stage for some Q&A which will be hosted by Rick O’Shea. Following the Q&A, DJ Aidan Kelly plans on spinning sounds from John Williams’ spine-tingling score while guests enjoy a Jameson, Ginger and Lime.
