It is shark week. Yes, I know we live in New England and we hear stories about sharks more often than just during shark week. But there are more than just shark stories that we hear and see. We also see a lot of shark movies including one main film that takes place in New England, I am talking about "Jaws."

There are many amazing shark-themed movies, although some may disagree that they are all amazing. "Jaws," "47 Meters Down," "The Meg," "Sharktopus," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," and of course all of the "Sharknado" films are just some of the movies that revolve around sharks.

Well, if you enjoy watching movies about sharks then you will be happy to hear you can catch some of your favorites at the  New England Aquarium's IMAX theater.

That's right, they will be playing shark movies from your past up on the big screen. However, it is important to note that each movie will only be screened for one night only.
