Guests are invited to attend a 70s beach party ahead of the screening at the Greenwich Yacht Club, where beach-goers will mingle at a BBQ with the odd passer-by looking for their missing dog and of course, a killer shark! Moving on to Liverpool, the beach party will continue at the Albert Dock and Merseyside Maritime Museum, but guests will need to keep their eyes on the water at all times, searching for that sinister fin.
