Description:
The Northwest Montana History Museum is happy to announce the next Movie Night at the Museum on Monday, July 26, with the 1977 treasure hunting epic The Deep!

A World War II shipwreck provides the setting and plot device for this 1970s adventure film, which pits amateur divers against a drug kingpin in a race for the sunken treasure. With the first underwater movie footage filmed in Panavision, The Deep was praised for its photography even as other elements of the film have become a time capsule of 1970s cinema.

Set largely at sea, The Deep was obviously meant to invoke the uber-popular Jaws, which was released two years earlier in 1975. Not only does Robert Shaw play a similar role in each film (shark hunter Quint in Jaws, treasure hunter Romer Treece in The Deep), but both films were adapted from novels by Peter Benchley.

Of course, everyone is always welcome at the Northwest Montana History Museum. However, if you have a cough, a fever, or are just feeling under the weather, we kindly ask that you visit us some other time; not only for your own health, but for the well-being of our staff and other supporters.

There is no charge for the film, and donations will be accepted to help defray the cost of showing the films. The movie and popcorn are free; wine, beer, pop and water will be for sale. Seating is provided, but film fans can bring their own floor pillows, portable chairs, or whatever is comfortable for viewing the film.
