Winter in the Hamptons

posted by Michael Zoldessy on January 11, 2008 at 7:45 am

Even though it’s not summer, there’s still reason to go to the Hamptons with the film series at the Bay Street Theater.

Just because it’s off-season in the Hamptons doesn’t mean there aren’t any good reasons to go there. From now through February, in fact, there are at least 14 good reasons. And all of them involve sitting in the dark and staying warm.

The Bay Street Theater at Sag Harbor has an inviting array of classic American films screening every Friday and Saturday night through Feb. 23. Sponsored by BookHampton, the winter series offers theme-oriented programming aimed at casual moviegoers and cinema buffs alike.

Wish I could be a part of all this. Unfortunately, I close up my home in Westhampton Beach during the winter. However, during the early part of the fall, I enjoy seeing independent films at the Hampton Arts Theater. The crazy summer crowd is gone and things quiet down real nicely.

More theatres across the country need to get in the act of showing classics on the big screen where they belong. I’m pretty sure the filmmakers didn’t have Hi-Def & Blu Ray in mind when they made “Casablanca” and “Citzen Kane”!

A little trivia about The Bay Street Theater. One of the founders is Emma Walton, daughter of Oscar winners Julie Andrews and Tony Walton. She also apperared in some of her stepdad Blake Edward’s films. Not a bad Hollywood pedigree.
