'Jaws' Beach Bash in Dania Beach | Photos

That was no ordinary shark on that South Florida beach.

It was “Jaws,” the iconic 1975 Steven Spielberg classic about a mammoth great white shark. On Friday, July 20, the summertime movie screened to a sold-out audience at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park in Dania Beach.

Moviegoers wearing glow-stick necklaces watched the blockbuster film on a 15-by-20-foot inflatable screen perched on the shoreline. Nearby, the park’s Whiskey Creek Hideout concession area served Shark Bite cocktails and other food.

Next up, “Jaws” will migrate south to Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach for a pair of sold-out, all-ages beachfront screenings on July 28 and July 29. Visitors can bring pool floats or lounge chairs.
