The Sag Harbor Cinema restoration project counts some of the biggest names in arts and entertainment among its supporters. Artist Eric Fischl is the latest famous fan to show his support, as it was revealed last week that the painter gave $1 million toward the project as an anonymous angel donor and is now speaking publicly about it. So far, $3.5 million has been secured to revitalize the historic theater that nearly burned down last December, Curbed reported. Fischl joins the likes of Billy Joel, Andy Cohen, Harvey Weinstein, and Martin Scorsese who have contributed. [Curbed]
