Jaws, levensecht Foto AFP The set of the Stephen Spielberg film "Jaws" is pictured at Universal Studios in Hollywood, 09 April 2007. Universal Studios Hollywood is the original Universal Studios theme park, created initially to offer tours of the real Universal Studios soundstages and sets. It is one of four fully-fledged Universal Studios Theme Parks, along with Universal Studios Orlando, Universal Studios Japan, and the upcoming Universal Studios Singapore, which will be completed by 2010. From the beginning, Universal has offered tours of its studio. In the silent-film days, Carl Laemmle's tour included a chance to buy fresh produce, since then-rural Universal City was still in part a working farm. Shortly after MCA took over Universal Pictures in 1962, accountants suggested a tour stop in the studio commissary would increase profits, and in 1964, the modest tour was expanded to include a series of dressing room walk-throughs, peeks at actual production, and later, staged events. This grew over the years into a full-blown theme park - the narrated tram (formerly "Glamortram") tour still runs through the studio's active backlot, but the staged events, stunt demonstrations and high-tech rides overshadow the motion-picture production that once lured fans in Universal Studios Hollywood.

West Beach Film: Jaws

Amsterdam: Sloterplas, terrein open vanaf 20.00u, aanvang film 21.00u. Entree gratis.

Vanavond opent het West Beach Film festival met Steven Spielbergs’ Jaws. Vier weekeinden achter elkaar worden vrijdag en zaterdag diverse films vertoond voor maximaal 150 personen op een scherm van 7 bij 4 meter dat 15 meter in de Sloterplas ligt. Outdoorcinema zorgt ervoor dat Jaws – met wat fantasie – haast levensecht te beleven is. Er ligt een surfboard met een hap eruit en er dobbert een haaienvin in het water. De film is te zien vanaf de kade en vanuit een paar rubber bootjes.
