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!

Tuesday, July 25th ZOOTOPIA! Our first kids film of the summer.

22 Jul

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.

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Wondering where everyone is? Well, the rain has come and gone and we’re down at the Pier tonight! See you for the sunset, Fort D’s fried chicken, Dolce gelato and more.

RAIN?@#$%?!

Well . . . when you’re an outdoor film series, it happens. Sometimes even on opening night. But never fear, Atelier Roquette has once again offered us their gorgeous event space as our rain-out location! And that means means that on top of dinner from Fort Defiance and ice cream and gelato from KingLeche and Dolce Brooklyn, there will be wine and beer for sale. So while we’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for clear skies, it’s not a bad trade off. Tune in to this space tomorrow, and we’ll make the rain call by 6 PM.

Our 2017 Schedule is Live!

8 Jun

You wouldn’t know it from the cloudy, soggy weather of late, but we’re just under two weeks out from the official start of Summer. Of course down in Red Hook, summer doesn’t really feel like it’s hit full swing until you’re lounging under the setting sun at Valentino Pier, eating some amazing local food, and watching one of our favorite movies–which is why we’re excited to announce that our  Summer 2017 Red Hook Flicks schedule is now live and can be viewed here! We’ve got another season of great movies planned for you and all thanks to our local sponsors, without whom none of this would happen. So, three cheers for them and see you at the pier!

ALIENS . . . coming 8/30!

28 Aug

This Tuesday is our final movie of the season and we’re going out like gangbusters with ALIENS! It’s hard to believe ALIENS turns 30 this year. It’s one of the rare sequels that stands up to the original, in no small part because rather than trying to ape the moody, deliberate thriller of Ridley Scott’s original classic, James Cameron smartly went for a complete tonal shift with this action-packed sci-fi/horror tour-de-force. What both films do share, of course, is one of the great screen heroines of all time: Sigourney Weaver’s kick-ass Ellen Ripley. Joining her is Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Bill Paxton, and Lance Henriksen. You don’t want to miss it.

ALIENS is brought to you by DRY DOCK and FORT DEFIANCE, who will be at the park serving dinner alongside Walter Youngblood’s KingLeche Cremes goats milk ice cream bars. Steve’s Key Lime Pies will stay open late for us serving tarts, pies, swingles, and limeades; and as a special treat for closing night Red Hook’s own Dolce Brooklyn will be there with their handcrafted gelato. It’s going to be dessert heaven.

See you at the pier!

 

 

LABYRINTH . . . coming 8/23!

21 Aug

It’s been a tough year for our idols, and the Thin White Duke was no exception. We lost David Bowie back in January, just two days after the release of his final album BLACK STAR. In his honor, we’re showing his beloved kid’s film LABYRINTH this Tuesday at the pier. Written by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, directed by Jim Henson, and produced by George Lucas, the film stars Bowie as the Goblin King, and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, a young girl who must solve the titular maze and rescue her baby brother.

LABYRINTH is brought to you by SHARED BROOKLYN and POK POK NY, who will be joining us at the pier to serve a dinner of Khao Man Som Tam–green papaya salad with coconut rice, sweet shredded pork, fried shallots, and cilantro ($10). And fear not when it comes to your sweet tooth because KingLeche Cremes and Steve’s Key Lime will have your back when it comes to dessert.

As a special bonus, we’ll also be opening with a short film from Digital Media Bootcamp, a summer filmmaking workshop run in partnership by South Brooklyn Community High School, Good Shepherd Services, Red Hook Initiative, and Dance Theater Etc.

See you at the pier!
