Join us this Tuesday for our second kids movie of the summer: MINIONS! Following the success of DESPICABLE ME, the yellow gibberish-talking, master-worshiping creatures got their own prequel, which follows lovable Kevin, Bob, and Stuart blindly leading their tribe through the ages, ever in search of the next evil tyrant to serve. Steve Carell returns as the voice of Gru, along with Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, and Geoffrey Rush.

MINIONS is brought to you by our awesome sponsors, Mark’s Pizza and Dolce Brooklyn, who will both be at the pier on Tuesday night serving pizza (plain and pepperoni), and gelato and sorbet. There will also be handcrafted goats milk ice-cream sandwiches from KingLeche Cremes, and as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open late across the parking lot serving their pies, tarts, and swingles.

See you at the pier with the kiddos!

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai is Jim Jarmusch’s most unique film and Red Hook Flicks is psyched to bring it to Valentino Pier on tuesday 8/8. Wrapping up the 90s, Ghost Dog, starring Forest Whitaker, tells the story of a loyal hit man with the moral code inspired by the Japanese Samurai tradition. Jarmusch and Whitaker create a surreal world where assassins, hip hop by Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, and cinematic aesthetics collide to a make a thriller ride.

As always our local sponsors make it all possible, Movers Not Shakers! and Lobster Pound. On the menu, Lobster Pound will be gracing us with a delicious fare of Lobster Rolls ($20), burgers (singles $8, double $12), and hot dogs ($4). They will also have frozen watermelon salad for $8.

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open across the parking lot selling tarts and swingles. Dolce Brooklyn and King Leche Cremes will treat us to a selection of handmade gelato, sorbet, and goat’s milk ice cream.

See you at the pier everybody!

Come join us this coming Tuesday, July 25th for Zootopia. This 2016, 3D computer animated, mystery, comedy adventure uses the allegory of big city life, and all of its challenges, under the guise of playful and endearing animal characters. The two main heroes are a spunky and intelligent rabbit police officer–the first of her species–  and a cunning sly red fox/ lovable con artist. Together, the duo must solve the mystery involving the disappearance of several “residents” in the area.

We are proud to screen this film for kids both large and small. As always it comes courtesy of the generous support of our awesome local sponsors, Foxy & Winston, Wine Dogs, and Brooklyn Ice House.

Brooklyn Ice House will be serving delicious pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw for $5, and mac & cheese for $4. Yum. We hope to see you.
