Don Lenzer  

Opening and Reception

June 14, 2019, 6 – 8pm

Julie Keyes Gallery

53 Main Street, Sag Harbor, NY

From the prodigious talent of cinematographer/photographer Don Lenzer comes a gorgeous new photographic portfolio titled SAG NOIR, honoring the Sag Harbor Cinema‘s iconic place in our hearts. This boxed set of 14 works represents loving observation of the old Cinema after the fire of December 16, 2016. Lenzer spent long and careful hours going through the Cinema, finding an eerie beauty in its devastation.


Lenzer summed it up with this: “Sag Noir has brought me more joy and satisfaction than I could have possibly dreamed. 

Out of destruction and loss came a lesson in generosity, kindness and community spirit.”


This magnificent set of images, printed by artist/photographer Jane Martin with a frontispiece forward by Lenzer, is being presented in a clamshell box produced by the great bookbinder Paul Vogel. Each image is a loose photograph measuring 17 x 22“, suitable for separate framing. The entire boxed set is priced to start with initial sales at $7000, increasing to $7,500 as the edition of 20 sells out, and proceeds after production costs will be entirely donated to the Sag Harbor Cinema rebuilding effort. 


The Sag Harbor Cinema Arts Center thanks Mr. Lenzer for his extraordinary vision, invention & imagination in conceiving this stunningly original project.

The Sag Harbor Cinema presents a special screening of Errol Morris’s AMERICAN DHARMA at Guild Hall


No stranger to interviewing some of the most controversial figures of our time, Oscar winning filmmaker, Errol Morris trains his lens on Stephen K. Bannon, questioning him closely about his beliefs, current feelings about President Trump, and films that shaped and continue to animate Bannon’s understanding of the world. The director of The Fog of War and The Thin Blue Line concludes that whatever one thinks of Bannon, ignoring him is the most dangerous course of action.

Tickets $15 online or at the door.

Optional dinner at 8pm at THE MAIDSTONE.

To Purchase $95 Tickets for the Movie and Dinner at The Maidstone Hotel: Call Zach Zunis at 631-324-0002

SAW, a screening of shorts, curated by Micaela Durand and featuring the work of contemporary artists, investigates the relationship between seeing and being seen with films that address how individuals present, perform, and reveal in an age of constant documentation. 


Featuring films by Daniel Chew and Micaela Durand, Simon Liu, Jordan Lord, Laurel Nakadate, Paul Pfeiffer, and Rachel Rose. Followed by a conversation with Durand, Lord and Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects at the Parrish. 


"There is something active in all these films that directs us, asks us to be present, engage in some way. Just like every profile needs an audience in order to be seen and has been made with someone seeing it in mind." - Micaela Durand

That’s Life!

dir. Blake Edwards / 1986 / 1hr 42min

Approaching the celebrations for his 60th birthday, successful architect Harvey Fairchild (Jack Lemmon, as a proxy for Edwards himself) is tormented by fears of aging and death and distresses his family with them. Unbeknownst to him, his renowned singer wife (Julie Andrews) is awaiting the results of a throat biopsy. Robert Loggia co-stars as a Catholic priest, alongside Felicia Farr as a fortune teller, Emma Walton Hamilton and Jennifer Edwards as the Fairchilds’ daughters and Chris Lemmon as their son. Co-written by Blake Edwards, That’s Life! was entirely self- produced, with dialogs often improvised during filming to promote spontaneity. It is the sixth and last film of the legendary artistic collaboration between Julie Andrews and husband/director Blake Edwards, following classics such as 10, S.O.B. and Victor/Victoria. It is also their most autobiographical. It co-stars Emma Walton Hamilton, Jennifer Edwards and Chris Lemmon.


The screening will be followed by a q&a with Julie Andrews and co-author Emma Walton Hamilton, moderated by Giulia D’Agnolo Vallan; and by a book signing.  

Home Work is the sequel of Andrews’ best-selling first memoir: Home: A Memoir of My Early Years. It covers Andrews’ extraordinary career in the American film industry from Mary Poppins to That’s Life! It will be published by Hachette Book on October 15th.
