Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Mission and Plans
For over 100 years, there has been a movie theater on Main Street, Sag Harbor. Then came the fire of December 16, 2016. The Sag Harbor Cinema has been bought and completely renovated thanks to the help and generosity of our volunteers and extraordinary community.
The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center, Inc. was established as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization to finish rebuilding, maintain and operate the historic Sag Harbor Cinema, with programming and education for people of all ages.

The Cinema will feature first-run, foreign, and vintage films in digital, 35mm and 16mm formats. We will offer a grab-and-go café, concession stand, flexible workspace, galleries and rooftop bar. Our three theaters hold 230, 90, and 38 seats respectively. Education programs are conducted in collaboration with local schools and cultural groups. The fostering of relationships with film festivals and other cultural institutions is part of the dynamic economic impact we provide to the East End community.
We will bring the best of the cinematic arts to Main Street, Sag Harbor year-round.
