    This week we take a step back in time. “Blackberry,” the New York Times Critic’s Pick, opening Friday, touches on both tragedy and comedy. The film takes us back to the days before the world had computers in our pockets and the journey these tech developers went on to make it happen. And who doesn’t love a classic back on the big screen? Don’t miss the 1975 Oscar winner, “Jaws,” playing for two screenings only.

Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.

    “Jaws” - (1975; 2 hours, 4 minutes) - What better way to celebrate summer than with some old favorites on the big screen! Lincoln Theater is pleased to present the second film in our 2023 Summer Blockbuster series, “Jaws.” When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature. Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the way audiences experience movies. “Jaw” remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history. Playing for two screenings only, Thursday, July 20 at 7 p.m. and Friday, July 21 at 1 p.m. (note early start time.)

    Coming soon: “Past Lives” - July 21.
