Q&A with shark specialist Tobey Curtis and Greg Metzger, facilitated by Alex Horwitz, director of documentary Hamilton's America
Local shark researchers, Tobey Curtis and Greg Metzger, are co-founders of the Long Island Shark Collaboration, a research and education platform focused on the study of sharks found in New York’s coastal waters. Recently, their team became the first in the Atlantic Ocean to attach satellite tags to newborn great white sharks, revealing new information about their nursery grounds and migration patterns. Their ongoing research is aimed at improving conservation and educating Long Island residents about the importance of their local waters to shark populations.
Jaws is a 1975 American thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley's 1974 novel. In the story, a giant man-eating great white shark attacks beachgoers on Amity Island, a fictional New England summer resort town, prompting the local police chief to hunt it with the help of a marine biologist and a professional shark hunter. The film stars Roy Scheider as police chief Martin Brody, Robert Shaw as shark hunter Quint, Richard Dreyfuss as oceanographer Matt Hooper, Murray Hamilton as Larry Vaughn, the mayor of Amity Island, and Lorraine Gary as Brody's wife, Ellen. 2 hours, 4 mins. 

"Movies at the Palace" take place at the stunning United Palace, formerly the Loew's 175th Street Theatre that first opened as a deluxe movie theatre and vaudeville house in 1930. We honor that past while reinventing the movie-going experience by pairing classic titles with pre-show entertainment and expert Q&A’s. The year-long series of “Movies that Reawaken Wonder” celebrates both the Palace’s past as a Wonder Theatre and recent cinematic rebirth, including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2016 donation of a DCP projector.
