Sag Harbor's Bay Street Theatre is offering the community the opportunity to come together Monday to witness the second inauguration of President Barack Obama.
The theater will project live video of the inauguration on its big screen. The doors will open at 10 a.m. for the free event, which runs until 1 p.m.
“It doesn’t matter what political party you belong to,” Bay Street Theatre Executive Director Tracy Mitchell said. “It’s a non-partisan screening and just fun to share these types of moments in history with your neighbors and others with whom you live and work. This is the type of moment when people will remember where they were when it happened. It’s a part of history.”
Students and groups are encouraged to attend.
Coffee and refreshments will be available for purchase in Bay Street Theatre's foyer.
Bay Street Theatre did the same for the presidential debates this election cycle, as well as the election night results.
In the evening, the Southampton Town Democratic Committee will be hosting an inauguration celebration at 230 Elm in Southampton Village, with buffet dinner, cash bar, music and dancing, beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50 at the door.
Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., Bedell Cellars’ 2009 merlot, from Cutchogue, will be one of the wines on the menu for the inauguration festivities.
