Southampton Arts Center is pleased to announce they will continue to present outdoors films on their west lawn through October, including tributes to Chadwick Boseman, John Lewis, and our Indigenous community as well as a pre-Halloween double feature. Friday features will run through October 30 and Sunday Docs will continue through October 24. The month of outdoor films kicked off this past weekend with the New York Premiere of The Dark Divide and the newly released Netflix must-see documentary Kiss the Ground, presented with Drawdown East End.

“Now that we have our own stage and equipment, we have the luxury of expanding our outdoor programs further into the fall, traditionally moving indoors after Labor Day. With current restrictions on gatherings, we are fortunate to have the ability to utilize our grounds to continue offering a variety of new and classic feature films and documentaries to the community before it gets too cold. But you will definitely want to bundle up!”- Amy Kirwin, Southampton Arts Center Artistic Director


In addition to SAC’s own programming they will serve as the outdoor venue for two films shown as part of Hamptons International Film Festival, on Sunday and Monday, October 11 and 12.
