A new wall replacing the gaping hole left by the fire that destroyed Sag Harbor Cinema will be revealed Memorial Day weekend.

Donated through the efforts of NK Architects and Croxton Collaborative Architects with the help of Aidan Corish of TANGRAM Intelligent Branding and local builder Men at Work, the 42-foot wall will feature an homage to the first responders at the fire, which affected several building on Sag Harbor Village’s Main Street, and a request for financial help in rebuilding the new Sag Harbor Cinema.

Several donors have already come forward to assist in the reconstruction of the cinema. Home designer and fabric historian Elizabeth Dow has offered to furnish all fabric for the theater’s new seating, and sculptor-metalsmith John Battle will repair the cinema’s iconic red “Sag Harbor” sign.

Jack Keats of SurfandSlide will offer T-shirts depicting the lost sign, and Bongiorno Brand will sell hats with a similar design. All profits will go toward recreating the cinema.

Proceeds from Topping Rose House’s Competitive Rosé Wine Tasting event this Saturday in Bridgehampton from 2 to 5 p.m. will benefit the cinema.

The nonprofit Sag Harbor Partnership’s fundraising party for the cinema will take place on Long Wharf in Sag Harbor on Sunday, July 16, from 5 to 8 p.m. Ticket price includes a “Taste of Sag Harbor” featuring donations from local restaurants and wineries, and a performance by the HooDoo Loungers. Face painting and cinema apparel will be available for purchase. There will be an art auction from 2 to 7:30 p.m. at local galleries as well. Tickets are $50, $15 for children. To purchase tickets, visit sagharborcinema.org or sagharborpartnership.org.

Sorry to say it's not what I was expecting. All it is is advertising and give me your money. To honor the first responders you could have some pictures of the guys freezing cold and the men and equipment all covered in ice that morning not architectural renderings of what it's going to look like. Sorry just my opinion

Will that wall be part of the final construction as well?
