About 130 people gathered in Dover's outdoor Cocheco Mill Courtyard Tuesday night for dinner and a movie, organized by Community Events of Nashua.

A crowd is seated on white folding chairs, nibbling on macadamia-encrusted Ahi, among other things on a menu from nearby restaurant Blue Latitudes.  They await this evening's entertainment: Jaws.

Chris Smith is here with his two sons. He says he's looking forward to going back in time.

I saw Jaws when it first came out, yeah, it's very unforgettable.

Chris Malloy runs the Nashua-based production company that put on the event.

This is a concept -- dinner and a movie series --  that we produced last year with the Nashua Chamber of Commerce.

He says his for-profit production company had technical assistance from Dover's downtown revitalization group, Dover Main Street, and funding assistance from two sponsors. Three similar events are scheduled for later this summer.
