Guild Hall Happenings

Guild Hall events

   Guild Hall has had a lot to offer this season and that continues in the final week of August.   
   Tonight, the Red Carpet film series will continue its cinematic celebraton of Judy Garland with “A Star Is Born,” at 8 p.m. The film is a musical remake of the 1937 drama with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, and was produced as Garland’s return to the screen after a four-year absence. There will be a talkback to follow with Richard Pena, the programming director at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Scott Doundas, and more. Tickets are $12 and $10 for members. Next Thursday’s film will be “Summer Stock,” the film that reunited Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. Nicolas Rapold, senior editor at Film Comment, will talk with the audience after the screening. On Wednesday “Fish: A Memoir of a Boy in a Man’s Prison” will be screened at 8 p.m. with a discussion to follow with the filmmaker, T.J. Parsell, who is a Sag Harbor resident.
   Tomorrow, in the John Drew Theater, “Celebrity Autobiography” will be on the stage at 7 and 9:30 p.m. In this comedy, created and developed by the Emmy-nominated writer and performer Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel, celebrities perform excerpts of “superstar” memoirs and writing. On the stage tomorrow will be Alec Baldwin, Ralph Macchio, Scott Adsit, Mr. Pack, Mr. Reyfel, and others interpreting the poetry of Suzanne Somers, the outlandish “romance trips” of Tommy Lee, and the famous Hollywood love triangle of Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Fisher, among other tales. Prime Orchestra tickets are $65 and $63 for members. Reserved seating is $40 and $38 for members.
