‘Jaws on the Water’: Alamo Drafthouse to Host ‘Dive-In’ Screenings on a Lake, as If the Movie Isn’t Already Scary Enough

We're gonna need a bigger inner tube.


You’ve probably seen “Jaws” before, but have you ever seen it while floating in a lake? Alamo Drafthouse is once again offering seaworthy viewers the chance to do just that this summer, with several screenings in Austin’s Lake Travis throughout the end of June and all of July. People are so excited about (and scared of) the event that Twitter even devoted one of those newfangled Moments to it.

Also part of the “Jaws on the Water” dive-in screenings: “Jaws 2,” albeit for one night only; “Jaws 3,” likewise as a one-off; and even “Jaws: The Revenge.” There’s swag as well, because of course there is, including a shark tube and a “Jaws” glass from Mondo featuring artwork by one Kevin Tong. We’re gonna need a bigger gift shop.
