Southampton Arts Center: Summer of Spielberg / Screening Schedule



All Outdoor Screenings this Summer to be
Films Written or Directed by Steven Spielberg


Southampton Arts Center, located at 25 Jobs Lane in the heart of Southampton Village, is delighted to partner with Hamptons International Film Festival for the fifth year in a row to offer free outdoor screenings of classic movies throughout the summer. To celebrate 5 years of this outdoor film program, 2018 has been deemed the “Summer of Spielberg”, where all outdoor movies shown will be selections written or directed by the master of filmmaking, Steven Spielberg.

“SAC board member Elyn Kronemeyer and I had both seen the 2017 Spielberg documentary by Susan Lacy and collectively came up with the idea to focus solely on Steven’s films, recalling that previous screenings of his classics in summer’s past have always been audience favorites. We believe it is the perfect way to commemorate our fifth consecutive summer of outdoor film programming.” said Amy Kirwin, Southampton Arts Center Artistic Director.

FRIDAY NIGHT FILMS are offered FREE outdoors on the west lawn and guests are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets and picnics. Live music will be featured prior to each screening starting at 7:30 PM followed by film-related trivia with fun prizes.
