here + there :: The Hamptons’ PR Wire

Southampton Arts Center is excited to announce that they will kick off Memorial Day weekend with a first-rate drive-in movie experience at Coopers Beach in Southampton Village. Now that Governor Andrew Cuomo has endorsed drive-ins as an acceptable form of public entertainment, SAC acted swiftly to organize this special event celebrating the unofficial start of summer. At sundown on Saturday, May 23, approximately 8:30 PM, SAC will present the 1981 Steven Spielberg classic Raiders of the Lost Ark, made possible by the generosity of Simone and David Levinson. Please note that space is limited and advance reservations are required to ensure safe, contactless entry.

This event will also serve as a Food Drive benefiting Heart of The Hamptons. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable items to donate in support of this vital local food bank.

“Embarking on our 8th year, Southampton Arts Center provides artistic and cultural programming to bring our vibrant community together and support the economic vitality of our village. After two months of isolating and separation we are delighted to host this drive-in movie and food drive as a nostalgic feel-good event to enjoy with family and friends, as we safely re-emerge from this tumultuous time together.”- Simone Levinson, Southampton Arts Center Founding Co-Chair

“We are excited to work with Southampton Arts Center to launch drive-in movies in the village. We applaud SAC’s Founding Co-Chairs Simone Levinson and J. Whitney Stevens, Tom Dunn, Amy Kirwin, and Godfrey Palaia for responding quickly and safely. This will be a phenomenal event for our community and we are proud to be part of it.” – Jesse Warren, Southampton Village Mayor

From Director Steven Spielberg, intrepid archaeologist Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) tries to beat a band of Nazis to a unique religious relic which is central to their plans for world domination. Battling against a snake phobia and a vengeful ex-girlfriend, Indiana Jones is in constant peril, making hair’s-breadth escapes at every turn in this celebration of the innocent adventure movies of an earlier era.

Attendees will be expected to stay in their cars and follow physical distancing guidelines. Cars should have no more people than available seat belts.
