Planet Shark exhibition & JAWS on the big screen

On Friday 13 September, you and your (sea)mates are 'gonna need a bigger boat'! Western Australian Museum is hosting Sharks After Dark!, a JAWSome night of entertainment!

Your night begins with a special after-hours viewing of WA Maritime Museum's latest blockbuster exhibition—'Planet Shark: Predator or Prey'—in a relaxed underwater cocktail atmosphere.


Chief Brody: "I used to hate the water."

Hooper: "I can't imagine why."


Dr TV (aka ECU's Tania Visosevic) will then offer a lively discussion of the Spielberg masterpiece JAWS —she's hoping it'll help her get over her selachophobia (fear of sharks) ...

Then it is time to step into NWS Shipping Theatre for a full screening of the suspense-thriller JAWS! Re-live the excitement of the summer of '75 when this creature feature became the world's first blockbuster film phenomenon.

Don't go in the water! but do go to Sharks After Dark! It is set to be a great night out! Plus enjoy deluxe film food options from the burger and taco bar and relax your nerves with drinks available from cash bar on the night.
