Jack Burton is a reasonable guy who’s just experienced some very unreasonable things, not least of which involves getting dragged into an epic battle between the supernatural forces of good and evil–and all so his friend can save his beloved from a forced wedding to a very wicked and immortal sorcerer named Lo Pan.
Kurt Russell stars alongside a pre-SEX AND THE CITY Kim Cattrall, and Kate Burton in John Carpenter’s cult classic, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. Special thanks to our sponsors for the evening, Find Home Furnishings and PokPok Ny for bringing Carpenter’s modern-day western to the pier this Tuesday. PokPok will be there serving Khao Man Som Tam (green papaya salad served with coconut rice, sweet shredded pork, fried shallots and cilantro–just $10, and the favorite dish of evil sorcerers everywhere, or so we hear); and Steve’s Key Lime, as always, will stay open late so you can partake of their tarty goodness.
See you at the pier!
UPDATE: In case you’re wondering folks, we’re staying at the pier for tonight’s screening!
Wes Anderson brings his unique brand of fabulist realism to Roald Dahl’s childhood classic. Nominated for Best Animated Feature at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, the film features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Willen Defoe, Own Wilson, and for you Pulp fans out there, Jarvis Cocker.
Special thanks to our sponsors for the evening, Waterfront Kitchens and Mark’s Pizza! Mark’s will be selling slices (plain, pepperoni, and supreme) at the park, and Steve’s Key Lime as always will stay open late so you can partake of their tarty goodness.
See you at the pier!
We try very hard not to move the film if we don’t have to. Unfortunately the forecast for tonight is just too iffy and the ground at the pier is already wet from showers earlier today, so we are officially moving tonight’s screening of COMING TO AMERICA to Atelier Roquette. More information here: http://redhookflicks.com/rain/
The Lobster Pound will be set-up serving lobster rolls three ways and hotdogs and the as-always perk about moving the screening to Atelier is that wine and beer will be available for sale as well!
This Eddie Murphy classic answers the age-old question: Where does a poor-little-rich crown prince of Zamunda go to find a bride? Why, Queens of course! (And more precisely, a now unrecognizable Long Island City–but, hey, back then that’s where you went for all your romantic needs, not to mention fast food franchise rip-offs.) Murphy re-teams with TRADING PLACES director John Landis and stars alongside James Earl Jones and Arsenio Hall in this 80s comedy classic, brought to you this Tuesday by MOVERS NOT SHAKERS and RED HOOK LOBSTER POUND! The Pound’s food truck, Big Red, will be on site serving three kinds of lobster rolls ($17 each), hot dogs ($5), and more; Steve’s Key Lime will stay open late slinging their tarts and swingles; and F & M Bagels will be on hand with beverages. So bust out your Soul Glo, cue up your Sexual Chocolate records, and we’ll see you at the pier!
We’re not going to let a 20% chance of passing showers sometime before 7:45 PM spoil our fun–or our opening night! We’ll see you at Valentino Pier tonight at 8:30 PM for JURASSIC PARK. Bring a blanket and some chairs (and maybe a garbage bag or two if you’re opposed to a little damp ground).
We’re an outdoor film series, so we’re always doing the no-rain dance and wishing for clear skies. And today we’ll be watching the forecast closely, hoping we can keep opening night at the pier.
But, if the heavens open up it’s no reason to get down as we also we happen to have an awesome rain location. Our friends and sponsors over at HOME/MADE make their super-cool catering space, Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street, between Van Brunt and Richards–just down the block from Stumptown), available to us for inclement evenings. With couches to lounge on and plenty of room to spread out your blankets and beach chairs, it’s our home away from home when the weather gods send us a foul night. And did we mention the added bonus of wine and beer to wash down those delicious dinners from our sponsors? Well, it’s almost enough to make you pray for a little rain every now and then! So watch this space for updates on where to meet tonight. We’ll make the call by 6 PM.
We see you sitting there, dejectedly eating your leftover potato salad and hotdogs amid spent roman candles and sparklers, forlorn that the holiday weekend is over. But while the countrywide party that is our nation’s birthday may be behind us, the summer-long party that is Red Hook Flicks is just beginning! And have we got a monster-sized opening night for you.
Just a few weeks ago JURASSIC WORLD broke all box office records to become the biggest opening weekend of all time. Now you can see where it all began with Steven Spielberg’s original dino-chomps-man extravaganza, JURASSIC PARK! Based on Michael Chricton’s blockbuster novel, the film stars Sam Neil, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, and Samuel Jackson as they desperately attempt to outsmart a nasty pack of genetically engineered dinosaurs on the rampage.
JURASSIC PARK is presented by SHARED and EARLY BIRD FOODS + SALVATORE BKLYN. EARLY BIRD and SALVATORE will be serving porchetta sandwiches with home made pickles ($10) and granola bars ($3); STEVE’S KEY LIME will be open across the parking lot and serving their pies, tarts, and swingles; and KING LECHE CREMES will be on site with their hand-crafted goats milk ice cream bars. Show starts at 8:30 PM. See you at the pier!
