Jaws tops list of classic movies people wish they’d seen in the theater
Do you remember going to the cinema? As the theatrical chains prepare to reopen, some movie fans have named the film they would have loved to see in a crowded theater surrounded by people with a bucket of popcorn on their lap. War of stars? The exorcist? Nah. The worthy winner is Steven Spielberg’s 1975 Shark Attack shocker Jaws.
