Raiders of the Lost Ark kick off the screenings.

Southampton Arts Center has partnered with the Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) for the fifth year in a row to offer free outdoor screenings of classic movies throughout the summer.

Southampton Arts Center, which has become a hub for arts and culture on the East End with almost 40,000 visitors, six exhibitions and over 200 events in 2017 alone, delivers year-round programming through an impressive array of partners including New York Academy of Art, Hamptons International Film Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Telluride Mountain film, the Watermill Center, and many more.

The 2018 summer film series with HIFF will feature the Summer of Spielberg - where all movies shown have been written or directed by master filmmaker, Steven Spielberg.

"SAC board member Elyn Kronemeyer and I had both seen the 2017 Spielberg documentary by Susan Lacy and collectively came up with the idea to focus solely on Steven's films, recalling that previous screenings of his classics in summer's past have always been audience favorites. We believe it is the perfect way to commemorate our fifth consecutive summer of outdoor film programming," noted Amy Kirwin, Southampton Arts Center Artistic Director.
