Friday, August 3 | 8:30 PM | FREE | Outdoors*
2018 is the Summer of Spielberg at Southampton Arts Center! All outdoor films shown from July 6 through August 31 will be classic selections directed or written by this master of film making.
(1982 | Fantasy/Thriller | Rated PG | 120 min.)
Bizarre and creepy happenings beset an average California family, the Freelings. Husband Steve sells real estate in their ever expanding subdivision and Diane is a stay at home mom caring for their three kids, Dana, Robbie and little Carol Anne. Strange things being to occur in the house however: cupboard doors open on their own, furniture rearranges itself and chairs go sliding across the kitchen floor. It’s a bit of whimsy at first but soon becomes deadly serious when Carol Anne vanishes into a nether-world where, oddly, she can only be communicated with through the white noise on their television. A team of paranormal investigators move into the house but the forces that kidnapped Carol Anne are evil and powerful, requiring the services of Tangina, a woman who has dealt with this situation before.

TAKEOVER! GALLERIES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED - CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
