UPDATE: The weather is looking pretty unstable thanks to Hurricane Isaac, so check back here tomorrow for the official rain call, which we’ll make by 6 P.M. The bad thing about getting rained out is that we don’t get to watch a blissful sunset on the pier or curl our toes in the grass. The good news is we get to watch the movie at Bait & Tackle–where there’s beer!!
Gather round children, and shed a tear with me for what will be the final screening in this summer’s series of movies on the pier. It has been a blast, Red Hook, in no small part thanks to our fabulous neighbors, some beautiful weather, extraordinary food, and not least of all the best sponsors an upstart local film series could ask for! This summer we’re closing festivities with a true classic from one of comedy’s greats: Mel Brooks’ YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, our neighborhood choice for Summer 2012. Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Terry Garr, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, and some chick named Abby Normal put on the ritz just for you. Super Duper!
Red Hook Choice is brought to us by Find Home Furnishings and of course each and every one of you who voted at this year’s fundraiser.
Snacks by Home/Made and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies and a classic Popeye cartoon courtesy of Sunny’s Bar. Dinner this evening is courtesy of Brooklyn Ice House, who will be serving pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs, and mac cheese for your gustatory delight!
The show begins circa 8:30 PM.
