Celebrate Shark Week 2008 at the Tennessee Aquarium and support our conservation efforts!  See Blue Water, White Death, the film that inspired "Jaws", meet Nick Caloyianis, a legend of the deep, and take home a free souvenir photo of yourself inside the actual shark cage used to film the movie! 

Blue Water, White Death
Wednesday, July 30: 5:30 - 9:30 p.m.

For toothsome, edge-of-your-seat Shark Week fun, see the classic documentary “Blue Water, White Death,” the first underwater film about the hunt for great white sharks that inspired Peter Benchley to write his thriller “Jaws.”  Underwater filmmaker and shark expert Nick Caloyianis will introduce the film with stories about pioneer director, Peter Gimbal and this dramatic expedition. 

Before the film, visit Ocean Journey from 5:30-7 and have a souvenir photo made inside the actual shark cage used in the movie!  A casual reception will follow this special screening.  Meet Nick Caloyianis who will sign copies of his new book, “The Shark Handbook” available for purchase along with the DVD “Blue Water, White Death.”

Event fee includes special screening, souvenir photo, Ocean Journey admission & reception.
