Grab your blankets, chairs and that special someone and head on over to the South Carolina Aquarium for a Movie on the Lawn.

In honor of Shark Week, the Aquarium is hosting a free showing of "Jaws" Thursday evening. The lawn opens at 7 p.m. so guests can interact with shark educators and watch an Aquarium original busting popular shark myths. The classic hits the big screen at dark.

Be sure to leave the pets and the coolers at home. Snacks, drinks and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Donation will be accepted at the door, and proceeds go to the Aquarium and its conservation efforts.
