Greater Shepparton City Council’s Word and Mouth open their events calendar this Friday 25 January with their “Dive-In Movie – Jaws!” held in partnership with Aquamoves at the indoor pool on Tom Collins Drive.
This event is the first of its kind in Shepparton, not only the screening of the legendary scary shark movie to be shown, but viewers will be floating in the pool whilst they do so, giving it an immersive feeling of being in the water with the shark. Aimed at young people aged 15 and over due to the horror themes, it promises to be another big event held locally for young people.
Word and Mouth Project Manager Jim Gow said “We are always trying to do something new, and try to change it up all the time so we try new things every year.”
“We’ve had this pinned to our ideas board for a year or two, and we managed to align the ducks and get it off the ground this time. People will also need to bring their own inflatable device; that’s a must,” said Mr Gow.
“Word and Mouth will continue to engage young people by putting on a range of events for them in Greater Shepparton. We too often hear that there is nothing to do in the area for young people and we are constantly looking to change that, which includes getting young people off the couch in a creative and fun manner, with a sprinkling of horror thrown in!”
“The iconic movie was made in 1975 and was Steven Spielberg’s first major hit film and as a result he became a household name. It was critically and commercially successful, and is considered the first summer blockbuster, and a massive movie from the era.”
This event is one night only and bookings are required through Eventbrite prior to the night. Entry is $12 per person and no tickets sold at the door. Doors open at 8pm and entry is via the main Aquamoves entrance.
