Tue, 10/13/2020 - 16:05
The film "Office Space" will be screened outside in Southampton on Friday.

Outdoor Screenings
In celebration of National Boss’s Day, the Southampton Arts Center will hold an outdoor screening of Mike Judge’s 1999 black comedy “Office Space” on Saturday at 7 p.m. on the center’s west lawn. Called by Roger Ebert “a comic cry of rage against the nightmare of modern office life,” the film stars Ron Livingston, Gary Cole, Jennifer Aniston, and Stephen Root, whose comic turn as the hapless Milton is unforgettable.

In a change of pace, on Sunday at 6 the center will present an outdoor screening of “Gather,” a documentary by Sanjay Rawal that follows the stories of Native Americans working to reconnect with spiritual and cultural identities that were devastated by genocide.

A ticket to each film is $10, $5 for members. “Gather” is free for members of the Shinnecock Nation. Guests have been advised to take chairs and blankets. The rain date for “Gather” is Monday.

Watermill Community Day
The Watermill Center will host a free community day on Oct. 24 from 12:30 to 3 p.m. The outdoor exploration of the grounds will include a Watermill Art Quest for more than 100 collection items that will be placed around the property.

Katie Down, a former artist in residence, will share a "sound painting" movement workshop and live music will be provided by Eric LaPointe, a Native American flutist. Light refreshments will be served.

Registration is required through Eventbrite and space is limited due to health concerns. Masks and social distancing will be required. The event is fully subscribed at this point, however, the center is taking names for a waiting list.

Bridgehampton Concerts Cancelled
The Bridgehampton Museum's fall series of outdoor concerts have been canceled due to health concerns from the Town of Southampton.

This article has been modified from its original and print version to reflect that the screening of "Office Space" at the Southampton Arts Center has been rescheduled for Saturday instead of Friday because of the forecast of inclement weather.
