‘Jaws’ to surface in Dewey Beach

Bayside screening of classic film set Sept. 22
September 13, 2023

Whether or not it’s safe to go in the water will be determined Friday, Sept. 22, when Dewey Beach officials host a screening of the 1975 classic “Jaws” on the bay.

Festivities get underway at 8 p.m. on the Van Dyke Avenue bayside beach, where the public is welcome to enjoy a bonfire and bring blankets, beach chairs, refreshments and even inner tubes to watch the movie from the water – if they dare.

The possibility of such a movie night was discussed at previous marketing committee meetings, said Commissioner Paul Bauer.

“This is another great, uniquely Dewey idea,” Bauer said. “We are very fortunate to have a very creative marketing committee that continues to work together on making Dewey the place where everyone has fun. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!”
