‘Homeland’ cooking

Cinema Society screens new Showtime drama

The Cinema Society screening of Showtime’s new drama “Homeland” filled the backyard of Jerry and Judy Della Femina’s East Hampton estate Saturday night.

While guests dined heartily on a full-course meal by a moonlit pool, Matt Blank quipped, “I can tell you that ‘Homeland’ is not about the U.S. having its rating downgraded.” The Showtime CEO went on to warn the host family to “count your silverware before everyone leaves.”
