Playing at Crandell, Jaws!

Crandell Theatre presents the 1975 classic, Jaws! This one-time showing will happen on Friday, July 2nd, just in time for Independence Day.

 When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.

The full July schedule, along with trailers, and reviews, can be found on the Crandell website. Tickets are available to be purchased either online or 15 minutes prior to the film’s start time at the box office.

Now Streaming at The Crandell: 2021 Oscar Nominated Short Films: Live Action

Screen Shot 2021-04-01 at 12.01.32 PM

Over the next few weeks, the Crandell Theatre is streaming the Short Films nominated for the 2021 Oscar category, Short Films: Live Action. 

The Present – Farah Nabulsi (Palestine)
Feeling Through – Doug Roland and Susan Ruzenski (USA)
Two Distant Strangers – Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe (USA)
White Eye – Tomer Shushan and Shira Hochman (Israel)
The Letter Room – Elvira Lind and Sofia Sondervan (USA)

“What Neil Gaiman has written about short stories is certainly true of short narrative films, and here are five live-action films that are ‘tiny windows into other worlds, and other minds, and other dreams. They’re journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.’ These short films, three from the US, one from Israel, and one from Palestine, are each nominated for an Oscar and each will transport its viewers efficiently, dramatically, and powerfully into the lives of strangers, neighbors, and even family.” – Laurence Kardish, FilmColumbia co-artistic director and former senior film curator at MoMA
