You’re going to need a bigger boat ... again!

Six bona fide movie classics are headed back to Cinemark Tinseltown.

One of my 10 favorite movies of all time, space and dimension, Jaws, is not only debuting on Blu-ray on Tuesday, but soon will re-surface on the big screen at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King.

The supreme shark flick to end all shark flicks kicks off the Cinemark Fall Classic Series, which features digitally restored prints of half a dozen classic films, Oscar winners all. Each will play for one Thursday only, with showings at 2 and 7 p.m. Here’s the schedule:

Jaws (1975), Aug. 23
High Noon (1952), Aug. 30
Doctor Zhivago (1965), Sept. 6
Chinatown (1974), Sept. 13
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), Sept. 20
• The African Queen (1951), Sept. 27

Tickets are just $4-$6, and on sale now at cinemark.com. —Rod Lott
