Yesterday, just hours after Governor Cuomo announced that most COVID-19 related restrictions were eased effective immediately, the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center welcomed audiences back to our summer cinema program: Tuesday Nights at the Movies with Andrew was starting off on the right foot.
The timing was fortuitous. We hadn’t planned on the Governor’s announcement coinciding with the first of our films, but it meant greeting our movie-goers with huge grins that they could actually see for lack of masks on our faces. It meant that there was now no real barrier to bringing Undine and other foreign or independent first run films to East End audiences. The films would stand or fall on their own.
