WHBPAC Kicks Off 2013 Finest in World Cinema Series with RENOIR Today


The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center has announced the return of its "Finest in World Cinema" Series! Thanks to a significant lead gift from supporters Rose and Don Ciampa, the WHBPAC was able to move forward with acquiring a top-of-the-line Digital Cinema Projector which secures the future of the Cinema Series by keeping the theatre up-to-date with the latest digital projection technology. As a token of gratitude, the Cinema Series will now be called the "Rose & Don Ciampa Finest in World Cinema" Series and a new logo has been created.

The PAC has also expanded its film schedule to now include Monday evenings. Andrew Botsford of Quogue, visiting professor and communications consultant for the graduate arts program at Stony Brook Southampton and co-host of the annual Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival, will introduce our summer films each Monday night and discuss the films afterwards with guest commentators, followed by an informal audience discussion. An actor with the Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue since 1985, Andrew has written extensively about film and theater and was for 20 years the associate editor of The Southampton Press and editor of its Arts & Living section.

Screening the best current release art house, foreign, independent and documentary films that run concurrently at the most prominent film houses in New York City, this year's expanded new "Rose & Don Ciampa Finest in World Cinema" series promises to be the best series ever! Tickets to all films are $15for adults, $9 for students/seniors, and $5 for WHBPAC Film Society members.
