The Friends of the Fishers Island Theater (FFIT) are excited to share another fun-filled summer with you at the Theater! This year we are focusing on using the theater in different ways and we are excited to partner with some of our favorite island organizations.
Here are some highlights to look out for!
We are listening!
Due to customer feedback last summer, we are moving ALL movie times to 7:00 pm. This seemed to be a better time to start for some of our longer films and will still get the kids home at a reasonable hour. Also, after the great success of our flat pricing last summer, all movies will remain $5.00 each for everyone. Classics movies are on Sundays, Adult movies on Mondays and Kids movies on Weds each week of the summer.
FICC Classic Movie Series – Hosted by David Hoch.
We are pleased to have the FICC (Fishers Island Community Center) continue their year-round Classic Movie Series at the Theater! This is an amazing program that the FICC started hosting in 2018. Each classic movie is presented by David Hoch, who taught a college level film course before retiring from teaching. He gives an introduction and brief history of the film. David knows all the fun and interesting facts about the movies, actors and filmmakers, and makes these films come to life in a new way. FFIT is partnering with FICC to bring this successful program to the Theater this summer each Sunday at 7:00 pm.
These classic movies are free. Donations are accepted and appreciated!
