SHAFT (2000) . . . Tomorrow!

22 Jul

shaft2Tomorrow at 8:30 it’s SHAFT (2000)–and rain or shine the show will roll at 8:30 PM. Check back here for updates tomorrow afternoon but, if there are storm clouds on the horizon we’ll, as always, be setting up shop at the Bait & Tackle instead.

SHAFT is brought to us by Find Home Furnishing and our food sponsor this evening is Pok Pok Ny. So, while we all eagerly await the opening of Whisky Soda Lounge Ny–not to mention their new (and larger!) space on Columbia Street–we can chow down on some Khao Man Som Tom (Green papaya salad with coconut rice, sweet shredded pork, fried shallots, and cilantro–$10).  And, hey, you know what goes really well with spicy Thai food? Beer.

So, maybe a little rain won’t be a bad thing.

SHAFT (2000) . . . coming July 23!

The ultimate Bad M*th@ F*ck@, Samuel L. Jackson squares off against Christian Bale and Jeffrey Wright in John Singleton’s sequel to the 1971 blaxploitation classic. Richard Roundtree–the original Shaft–makes an appearance alongside Busta Rhymes, Toni Collette, and Vanessa Williams. Shut Your Mouth!

And if you’ve been dying to eat at PokPokNy but the lines have been getting you down then tuesday is your lucky night. SHAFT (2000) is brought to you by Find Home Furnishing and PokPok, who will be on site serving dinner that night. Check back here for menu updates as we have them.

Steve’s Key Lime will be open in their new space across the parking lot serving all their delicious tarts and swingles and we’ll have drinks at the concession stand.

Film rolls at 8:30 (or as soon as its dark enough). A classic Popeye short gets the whole thing started. See you at the pier!

STAND BY ME . . . Coming 7/9

2 Jul

Stand By Me 1

UPDATE: I swear we look forward to the food each year as much as the films, and the menu from Fort Defiance is finally in hand–Huzzah! For our screening of Stand By Me, Fort D will be serving BLTs made with organic tomatoes and Neuske’s bacon ($8), as well as their dynamite cold brew iced coffee ($3); and home-made gingerade, lemonade, and iced tea (all $2.50).

And don’t forget, if you want a sweet treat to round things off Steve’s Key Lime, located in the parking lot just behind the screening area, will be open late selling all their pies, tarts, and swingles. I can’t imagine anything that would take the sting out of this excessive heat quite like a chocolate-covered, frozen, mini key lime tart on a stick. Oh my!

I know you’ve all got the 4th on your minds but, let’s ponder the real official start of summer, taking place next week: that’s right, Movies on the Pier are back! And after the year Red Hook has had, is there a better film to kick the season off with than Stand By Me? Bask in the eighties goodness for a moment: Corey Feldman, River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Kiefer Sutherland, and Jerry O’Connell in one of the best Stephen King adaptations ever made. (Yes, that’s right, Stand By Me was adapted from a King novella called The Body, which appeared in the same collection as Rita Hayworth and  Shawshank Redemption. Clearly King was on a roll with those two.)

Stand By Me is brought to you by Fort Defiance and Dry Dock Wine + Spirits. Fort D will be on site selling dinner, Steve’s Key Lime will throw open the doors to their new space–conveniently located at the end of Van Dyke Street, just outside the entrance to Coffey Park–and have all of their delicious pies, tarts, and swingles available, and as always we’ll have water and soda for sale, as well.

Now who’s bringing the cherry flavored Pez?

Yes, Virginia, There Will Be Summer Movies on the Pier!

Summer is almost upon us and despite all the havoc wrought by Sandy to Red Hook in general, and our extraordinary sponsors in particular, Red Hook Flicks is rising from the floodwaters to bring you another season of summer films, sunsets on the water, and some seriously awesome local food. The film committee has been hard at work wrangling all the moving parts, so check back here in the coming weeks for information of our upcoming fundraiser on June 2nd, details on this year’s sponsors, and of course the big reveal of our 2013 schedule! See you at the pier . . .

E.T. . . . coming 8/21

17 Aug

UPDATE–SPECIAL FOOD VENDOR:

In addition to the spectacular food being provided by The Good Fork and snacks from Home/Made and Steve’s, we’re very fortunate to have John Vitko of Scout’s Honor Creamery in Vermont here on Tuesday evening to sell his handcrafted treats:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich: $4
Vanilla Ice Cream Brownie Sandwich: $5
French Macaroon Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich: $6
Popcicles (grapefruit, cucumber mint, strawberry lemon, peaches n cream): $3
Plus a special pop just for adults–Mojito!: $4

We cannot wait!

This Tuesday join us at the pier for one of the great summer family films of all time. E.T. helped define the summer blockbuster with its wildly popular boy-meets-baby-alien-and-goes-head-to-head-against-nepharious-U.S.-government-forces-to-protect-him tale. It features Henry Thomas; Peter Coyote; Drew Barrymore, in what is surely her finest screen performance to date; and a contender for the world’s most expensive long distance call. Can you imagine if they remade E.T. today? He and Elliott would be stuck in development hell at iTunes trying to get their intergalactic telephony app approved. Ah, simpler times. But I digress…

Tuesday’s movie is brought to you by Bait & Tackle. Dinner by The Good Fork — Japanese Short Rib Curry with Farm Vegetables and Purple Rice, mmmm. Only $8! Snacks by Home/Made and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies.

And don’t forget to come early to catch a classic Popeye cartoon courtesy of Sunny’s Bar.

As always, festivities begin circa 8:30 PM.

Tacos, Good Fork-Style!
