The Best Movie Story

The best story I’ve ever heard about a movie premier is from Steven Spielberg about Jaws. On March 26, 1975 at the Medallion Theater in Dallas, filmmaker Steven Spielberg nervously stood in the back unsure of the audience’s reaction at the first screening ever for Jaws. Within 10 minutes, an audience member ran out. Spielberg thought it was a very bad sign – the guy wasn’t just walking out of the theatre, he disliked it so much he was running. But the reality was th e guy left to throw up and then immediately returned to his seat. Throughout the rest of the film the audience screamed, laughed and reacted to all the beats the way Spielberg and crew had hoped.
