Movie Theater To Name Popcorn Stand In Billy Joel’s Honor

Billy Joel is about to receive a very unusual honor: A movie theater is going to name its popcorn stand after him.  The theater in question is the historic Sag Harbor Cinema on Long Island, New York, which was damaged by fire last December.  According to Long Island’s Newsday, Joel, a part-time resident of Sag Harbor, has donated money to help rebuild the theater.  The Sag Harbor Partnership says it needs about $8 million to rebuild the theater’s Art Deco facade and upgrade the projection and sound systems.  With Billy’s donation, the total the Partnership has raised so far is $2.3 million.  It wasn’t disclosed how much money the Piano Man himself kicked in, but it was enough for the Partnership to announce that it’ll name the popcorn stand after Joel.
