Dive-in movie horror at Aquamoves

By Liz Mellino

Community members can enjoy a dive-in movie screening of Jaws tomorrow at the Aquamoves indoor pool in Shepparton.

Run by Greater Shepparton City Council’s Word and Mouth, the event is the first of its kind in Shepparton, with viewers able to float in the water while watching the film.

Word and Mouth project manager Jim Gow said the screening was aimed at those aged 15 and above due to the horror themes, promising the event would be something new and different.

‘‘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,’’ he said.

‘‘People will also need to bring their own inflatable device; that’s a must.’’

Produced in 1975, Jaws was Steven Spielberg’s first major hit film, becoming critically and commercially successful and a key movie from the era.

Mr Gow said the screening was the first event for the 2019 Word and Mouth calender, with many more creative activities planned.

‘‘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,’’ he said.

The event is for one night only tomorrow. Bookings are required through Eventbrite before the night. Entry is $12 per person and no tickets will be sold at the door. Doors open at 8pm and entry is via the main Aquamoves entrance. No BYO food, however food, including popcorn and drinks, will be available from the venue. Visit Facebook for more details.
