SIXTEEN THE EAST HAMPTON STAR, EAST HAMPTON, N.Y., SEPTEMBER 1, 1977 SIDNEY LUMET of East Hampton and New York is represented by five early films in the “Filmmakers of the Hamptons Festival IX” at Guild Hall through Friday. There are discussions of the films each evening. Summer’s End Guild Hall, which has been bubbling away all summer long with creative endeavors, is about to simmer down. Following a Labor Day weekend of movies and concerts, the community center’s staff will get a well-deserved break, with little on the schedule for a fortnight or so. A Sidney Lumet film retrospective, which is being presented under the banner of the “Filmmakers of the Hamptons Festival IX,” will continue this evening and tomorrow evening. Tonight’s film, to be shown at 8:30, is “The Group,” adapted from Mary McCarthy’s story of eight Vassar graduates and what happened to them after college. The feminist author and activist, Betty Friedan, herself an alumna of a woman’s college (Smith, not Vassar), is expected to be a special guest at the open discussion following the film. Conclusion “The Anderson Tapes,” based upon a best-selling novel about a summer weekend robbery on Manhattan’s East Side, will conclude the Lumet retro­ spective tomorrow night. All seats for these films are sold on a reserved basis. On Sept. 3 at 9 p.m., and the night after at 8:30 p.m., Carlos Montoya will perform in the John Drew, on the Flamenco guitar. The noted performer, who will return from Spain just before the first concert, has made Guild Hall on Labor Day weekend a fixture in his schedule for several years now, and his concerts are almost inevitably sold out, requiring seats on the stage to accom­ modate the overflow. With the coming of fall, Guild Hall’s instruction series will resume. One class that never ended is Peter Lipman-Wulfs course for aspiring sculptors; it takes place every Wed­ nesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and there are a few places open now. In October, painting classes will begin; David Porter will be the instructor. PBA Event Members of the East Hampton Town Police Benevolent Association have embarked upon their annual fund­ raising event, with a mail appeal and a listing of prizes, to be awarded Oct. 8. First prize will be a four-day vacation in the Pennsylvania Dutch country; second, a television set, and the two third prizes, digital clock radios. John B. Claflin is president of the Asso­ ciation. ANDREA BROWN, who is managing the Guild Hall Museum Shop, and her daughter Victoria examine some wooden sculptures by William Accorsi, on view there through Sept. 15.
