Capitol Theatre celebrates 35 years of 'Jaws'

The Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater will host a 35th anniversary screening of the movie Jaws on Friday night. Tickets are $2, just like when Jaws was released in 1975. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Downtown Development Board are co-hosting the event, which kicks off at 6 p.m. just outside the theater at 405 Cleveland St. Clearwater Threshers mascot Phinley will be on hand for photos, and the aquarium's experts will hold a discussion about the relationship between dolphins and sharks in the wild. Theater doors open at 7 p.m. and the film screening will be at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office or at the Capitol Theatre just before the show. An $8 donation to the aquarium is also suggested.


Body found near bridge is identified

Police have identified the body of a man found floating south of the Memorial Causeway Bridge on Monday. The man's name is Matthew Allen Woodward, 34, of Clearwater. A preliminary investigation indicates that Woodward jumped from the bridge, police said. Several of his personal belongings were found on the bridge Saturday, police said. An autopsy confirmed that Woodward's body showed no signs of trauma. But officials will not determine the official cause of death until toxicology tests are completed.


Man arrested on molestation charge

A 53-year-old man is accused of molesting a girl under age 12, authorities said. Gilberto Z. Alamillo, of 11335 123rd Ave., Largo, was arrested Tuesday on one count of capital sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. According to an arrest warrant, Alamillo molested the girl on two occasions in June 2009. Police began investigating after the girl reported the incidents Saturday, the warrant says. When a detective interviewed Alamillo about the girl's statements, he originally said he couldn't remember because he had been drinking but later admitted the actions, according to the warrant. It's unclear how Alamillo knew the girl, and her age was not immediately available Wednesday. Alamillo was being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail.

  3. 'Baby Driver' literally turns heist movie genre on its ear, set to slick soundtrack


    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
