Summer Lectures: Blockbusters Reinvented

120mins   16+   

Led by Julian Bowker

The long, hot summer of 1975 brought a major turning point in American cinema history. Hollywood by the mid 70s was becalmed and listless.

Jaws, an unexpected summer blockbuster, dragged its audience off the beaches and marked the beginning of Hollywood’s revival, laying the groundwork for the launch of Hollywood’s next big hit, Star Wars a few years later.

Join Julian as he discusses the legacy of Jaws; the film, the context of its success and its lasting legacy on Hollywood.
