Film Screening – Battle of the Sexes

The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.

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.
