The famous line in the movie is "We're gonna need a bigger boat." Well, if this idea gets more popular, they might need a bigger pool.
Over the weekend, a community pool in Leeds, England hosted a unique Jaws movie experience.
One where viewers could hang out in inner tubes and splash about, without fear of meeting the same fate of the poor souls in Spielberg's classic.
The pool-side screener was part of a festival, that's connected to an organization that helps the economically disadvantaged.
Festival director Jane Earnshaw told the Guardian, "We love producing events in unorthodox spaces and taking events right to people's doorsteps."
A previous event did just that and involved taking a mobile theatre to two public housing complexes.
With this Jaws screening, the terror ante was upped as speakers streamed the Jaws soundtrack under and over the water.
The "Swim Along" evening was the first of two scheduled, with the second coming this summer. For those who fear dorsal fins, there was also a screening of 'Finding Nemo'.
At the same venue, they're accustomed to putting on unorthodox performances. The West Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra has even performed Handel's Water Music poolside to passing swimmers.
One of the swimmers, Rommi Smith, told the Guardian, "The event was inspired and inspirational. They should do it more often - it's... decadent, and probably exactly what Handel would have wanted."

On the shark front, this pool screening wasn't the first event of its kind.
In 2006, Harvard's Malkin Athletic Centre hosted a similar event charging $5 dollars for a limited number of in-pool seats.
The movie was projected on a screen with the "Baaaa-DUMs!" coming in at frightening 2400 watts.
