DAZED AND CONFUSED . . . coming 7/8!

6 Jul

DazedMMRAIN UPDATE: It’s looking a little iffy for later in the evening but since DAZED AND CONFUSED is only 90 minutes and we know how much you all love to be outside, we’re going to roll the dice and stick with it at the pier. That said, we are going to start PROMPTLY at 8:30. So be there early and bring some rain gear!

Long before the McConaissance that brought us MAGIC MIKE, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, the spectacular weirdness of TRUE DETECTIVE and one previously inconceivable Oscar win, Matthew McConaughey was  just a young Texan with aspirations of stardom and a penchant for pot and naked bongo playing. This Tuesday we kick off the 2014 summer movie series with the film that gave McConaughey his first big break: Richard Linklater’s 1993 cult-classic DAZED AND CONFUSED! Come watch The Shirtless One wax philosophic about high school girls and why you gotta just keep on livin’ alongside Milla Jovovich, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, and an uncredited Renee Zellweger–and catch a preview of Richard Linklater’s upcoming film BOYHOOD at the same time!

DAZED AND CONFUSED is brought to you by Red Hook Bait and Tackle and The Good Fork, who will be on hand with two delicious choices for dinner: vermicelli with Early Girl Farm vegetables, white soy ponzu, and shredded chicken ($7) or the highly-stoner-approved mac cheese with bacon and cheetos ($5)! Steve’s Key Lime will be open across the way selling their delicious tarts and swingles and our friends from Scout’s Honor Ice Cream are making the trip down from Vermont to bring us their amazing, hand-crafted ice-cream sandwiches and ice pops.

Dude.

We’re a little less than one month away from opening night at Red Hook Flicks and in case you missed it, the schedule is now posted.

Thanks, as always, go out to all of our incredible sponsors, without whose generous support of time, resources, and funds, this series would be impossible.

We’ll see you on Tuesday nights at Valentino Pier, starting July 8.

All right, all right, all right!

 

Fundraiser Update: BREAKING NIGHT screens this sunday

17 May

breaking night

At this Sunday’s fundraiser we have a couple of special shorts screening that we’re super excited about, including BREAKING NIGHT by Red Hook’s own Yolanda Ross. You might recognize Yolanda from her acting work on HBO’s TREME or on stage with New York’s Labrynth Theater Company.  BREAKING NIGHT, also starring Clarke Peters (THE WIRE, TREME),  is her directorial debut and won Best Short Film at last year’s San Diego Indie Film Festival.

We’re really honored that Yolanda’s sharing her work with us, so come on out to Bait and Tackle this Sunday at 5, have some great food from our sponsors, vote for Neighborhood Choice, find out what’s screening on the pier this summer, and see BREAKING NIGHT!

 

 

2014 Fundraiser–Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

12 May

Valentino pier Red Hook

It was 79 degrees today–79! Summer was clearly sending a little salvo our way but that’s ok because over here at Red Hook Flicks, we’ve had Summer in our sights for quite some time. In fact, the line up for this year’s movies on the pier has been selected and we can’t wait to share them with you at our annual fundraiser! Come out and join us and our amazing sponsors this Sunday, May 18 at 5 p.m. at Red Hook Bait and Tackle. There’ll be food from our sponsors and we’ll unveil this summer’s slate of films. Plus there will be special screenings and a raffle for a prize package from Brooklyn Slate.

And perhaps MOST importantly, you get to vote on this season’s NEIGHBORHOOD CHOICE film! Last year you selected Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead.  What will it be this year? Well, that’s up to you. $1 per vote. As always, ballot stuffing is highly encouraged!

$10 suggested donation … but all are welcome regardless of ability to pay.

See you this Sunday at 5 p.m.!

Update on Tomorrow’s Menu and Special Short Film Screening!

26 Aug

ImageMore exciting news about tomorrow’s screening of DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD! Red Hook Flicks has partnered with African Film Festival, Inc. to show a short film called “Bongo Barbershop” before tomorrow’s main event. Here’s a brief description:

An East African MC, Balozi Dola, wanders into a Bronx barbershop on his pilgrimage to find “the real hip hop.” Stumbling upon the pioneers of the New York hip hop scene, including Grandmaster Flash’s original partner DJ Easy Mike, Balozi enters the scene rhyming with Grandmaster Caz. “Bongo” is the Swahili expression for “Brain” used in local hip hop slang.

African Film Festival, Inc. (AFF) is dedicated to advancing an enhanced understanding of African culture through the moving image. It offers diverse platforms for the wide distribution of African media through its flagship annual film festival and complementary year-round programming. AFF is committed to increasing visibility and recognition for African media artists by introducing African film and culture to a broad range of audiences in the United States and abroad, bypassing economic, class and racial barriers.

We’re psyched to be closing out our season by teaming up with this awesome organization to show this film. Our sponsors, Home/Made and Pickett Furniture, are bringing us a delicious menu of foccacia with figs from Jeremy Pickett’s own backyard, and Home/Made is bringing back their popcorn for those of you who have been missing it this year. We’ll also have Paletas, Mexican ice pops, from neighbor La Newyorkina, and Walter Youngblood will be on hand with his popsicles again, so there’ll be no shortage of delicious treats on our final night! The weather report is looking good, so we’ll see you at the pier!

DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD, coming August 27!

Hard to believe it, but the final movie of this year’s Red Hook Flicks is nearly upon us! Come out to the pier one last time for DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD, voted the Audience Choice film at our fundraiser, back in June a million years ago. DON’T TELL MOM, a cult classic starring Christina Applegate in her prime, is sponsored by Pickett Furniture and Home/Made. In addition to whatever deliciousness Home/Made is serving for dinner, Steve’s Key Lime will be open late selling tarts, pies and swingles.

The film starts at 8:30. If there’s any chance of rain, check back here for updates on any possible location change. In the meantime, let’s all keep our fingers crossed for good weather…
