7pm: Vaudeville Variety Show
8:30 - 10:00: Outdoor Screening of The Great Gatsby
Tickets available on-line via
Tickets are suggested minimum donation of $20 advance, $25 at the door. This show WILL sell out, so get them early and tell your friends! Carpooling strongly encouraged, as the only parking is on the street. This is a Roaring Twenties Hamptons costume party, but a fedora and a nice suit or a lovely garden dress will do too.
We will provide punch and some tasties as well as one complimentary glass of champagne to toast before the movie begins, but we encourage you to bring your own libations or cocktail set. Also if you have a picnic blanket or some chairs, bring those along as well.
*Tip on finding the right magical house: Be sure to enter through the gate with the mailbox made out of stone, sea shells and sea urchins. Follow the path lit by chandeliers hanging in the trees.* More specific directions will be posted closer to the day of the event.
