Author Talk – Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village

On December 16, 2016, the beloved Sag Harbor Cinema burned down. The 1936 Art Deco Theater may have been the latest in a long line of Sag Harbor movie houses, but it was not the first. In her new book Sag Harbor: 100 Years of Film in the Village, author and journalist Annette Hinkle pays tribute not only to the recently lost art-house cinema but also to all the movie houses that preceded it. An homage to a century of celluloid on Main Street, the book traces film history from the era of the silents to the Sag Harbor Cinema’s nearly four-decade tenure as the last independent, single screen theater in the Hamptons.
