The Sag Harbor Cinema was nearly destroyed in a fire in December, 2016. The Sag Harbor Partnership, after months of fundraising, purchased the Cinema in 2017. The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center was created in 2017 to take charge of its rebuilding and operations.
The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center will restore the Sag Harbor Cinema and preserve the showing of independent, foreign and documentary films on the East End of Long Island. Its establishment will help preserve Sag Harbor's historic Main Street. Education, programming and outreach for people of all ages will ensure that the Cinema is here for future generations.
THE FINAL PHASE: GETTING READY TO OPEN
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN SECURING THE THEATER!
We have raised enough funds for basic construction, and are now raising funds for the expansion of the 3rd floor with VR/classroom space, replication of historic fixtures, projectors and advanced sound system, equipment for concession stand, café, and offices, salaries for administration & staffing, and making the Cinema OPERATIONAL.
Please keep your generous, 100% TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donations coming!
If we can raise the needed funds, the cinema can re-open this fall, 2019.
