Movie On The Beach

Jaws (1975)

Experience a movie on the sandy shores of Presque Isle this summer!
Under the stars and at the water’s edge, Erie Federal Credit Union presents JAWS for one night only at Beach 11 on Friday, July 28th during Discover Presque Isle Days. Yes, you read that right - the shores of Lake Erie will not be so “shark free” this summer. FREE and open to the public, JAWS will be projected onto the big screen at 8:30pm just like the old days at the drive-in, except this time you’ll be parked on your beach blanket with your toes in the sand.
