At Sag Cinema
The Sag Harbor Cinema is continuing its celebration of the centennial of Columbia Pictures with screenings of three film classics.

First up is "The Wild One" (1953), starring Marlon Brando in Laszlo Benedek's precursor to the last 70 years of biker films, which will be shown on Monday at 6 p.m. A new restoration of Charles Vidor's "Gilda" (1946), starring Rita Hayworth, follows on June 17, and Robert Altman's "California Split" (1974), a comedy-drama featuring George Segal and Elliott Gould, will be screened on June 24.

Pamela Yates and Paco de Onis will be at the cinema on Sunday at 6 for a showing of their new documentary, "Borderland | The Line Within," which explores the increasing criminalization of undocumented immigrants. Wendy Keys, the founder of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, will moderate a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers.

Jazz Launch Party
A kickoff party for the 2024 season of Hamptons Jazz Fest will happen Monday evening from 7 to 9 in the lobby of Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theater. The event will include hors d'oeuvres, live music, and a cash bar.

Tickets are $30, free for those who buy a one-year Jazz Fest membership for $120.

Perlman Chamber Concert
"Tutti Suonare" (Everybody Plays), a chamber music concert performed by faculty members of the Perlman Music Program and young artists from its chamber music workshop, will take place at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons in East Hampton on Saturday at 7 p.m. The faculty-artists are Itzhak Perlman, Molly Carr, Laurie Smukler, and Areta Zhulla.

Tickets are $40 for folding chairs, $65 for pew seating, or $250 for V.I.P. seating; $36, $56, or $250 for members of the center.

"Tutti Suonare" will also be performed Friday evening at 7, at the music program's Shelter Island campus. General admission is $50.

Tea Dances
Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theater, in partnership with the LGBT Network and the Long Island LGBT Chamber of Commerce, has announced a series of Summer Sunday Tea Dances to be held on the theater's patio and its indoor bar on Sunday, June 30, July 7, July 14, Aug. 11, Aug. 18, and Aug. 25.

Each tea dance will have a different theme. Sunday's is "Swifty Sunday," featuring Taylor Swift's "most singable and danceable hits." Open to all, ages 21 and over, the party will run from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Cocktail specials, hors d'oeuvres, music, and dancing will offer a festive way to wrap up a weekend.

Tickets are $20.

Architecture’s Future
A talk and book signing with Robert Cody, an architect and co-author of "Alvar Aalto and the Future of Architecture," will take place at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill on June 13 at 1 p.m. The program is co-presented with A.I.A. Peconic.

Mr. Cody and his co-author, Angela Amoia, are partners at Amoia Cody Architecture in Brooklyn and professors at the New York Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Design. 

The book looks to Aalto (1898-1976), a prominent Finnish architect and designer, as a way into many topics -- history, theory, design, construction, technology, science, ecology, sensory experience, and digital design -- and their effect on the material choices facing architecture today.

Tickets are $20, $18 for senior citizens, $15 for A.I.A. Peconic members and Parrish members' guests, $10 for Parrish members, free for students and children.
    
Botanical Latin
The lecture series of the Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons will bring Jennifer Bakshi to the Bridgehampton Community House on Sunday at 2 p.m. to talk about Botanical Latin.

Vernacular names for plants often differ according to the region or country. The use of Latin as the basis for the universal system was codified in the late 1700s by the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus, who designed the system of using two designations -- a genus and a specific epithet -- to name every plant species.

Ms. Bakshi, who teaches Botanical Latin and plant morphology at the New York Botanical Garden, also runs a landscape design business. Her talk will touch on binomial nomenclature, including relevant Latin fundamentals, the rules governing pronunciation, and a few common Botanical Latin root words.

Tickets are $10, free for members.
