About This Show

From Manhattan to Long Island, the New-York Historical Society brings its celebrated film series to the Hamptons! Produced in collaboration with Guild Hall at the John Drew Theater in East Hampton, New-York Historical visits some of the most popular films presented in its Justice in Film Series. Join us for a selection of silver screen classics featuring discussions by notable filmmakers, writers, actors, and historians and explore how these motion pictures have tackled social conflict, morality and the perennial struggles between right and wrong that are waged from the highest levels of government to the smallest local communities.

In Steven Spielberg’s award-winning sci-fi classic, civilians and government officials alike are inexplicably drawn together following encounters with extraterrestrial lifeforms and attempt to find the meaning behind their experiences.
