Guild Hall and the Hamptons International Film Festival present a screening of

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD hosted by Alec Baldwin

In 1960, an unknown airline reservation agent published her first novel. That book, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, would go on to win the Pulitzer Prize and become one of the most beloved works of fiction as well as a staple in American schools. Two years later, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Horton Foote adapted Lee’s novel for the screen and would eventually win the Oscar for his work, one of the film’s three Academy Awards. Featuring a career defining turn by Gregory Peck, the film masterfully captures Lee’s deft exploration of race & class relations, gender roles, and a child’s loss of innocence. Join HIFF Co-Chairman Alec Baldwin and Artistic Director David Nugent for this latest entry in our long running Winter Classic series with an extended discussion of the film to follow.

National Theatre Live Screening: AMADEUS

Music. Power. Jealousy. Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.
