Lincoln Center On Screen

We recently started a series of programs from The Lincoln Center called Lincoln Center On Screen. Unfortunately, the Lincoln Center has just announced that it is suspending this program as of July 1. Here is their announcement. What that means for us here is that the remaining viewings we had scheduled this year are cancelled until further notice. We are looking into other options to bring this kind of world-class cultural programming to Pine Island, so stay tuned!

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
