Coming 8/27…RED DAWN

26 Aug

It happens every year. The final movie of the season arrives, and we can’t believe how quickly the summer has gone. So please, join us tomorrow as we go out in a blaze of 1980s anti-Soviet glory with the original RED DAWN.

Tomorrow night’s sponsors are Red Hook Lobster Pound and longtime Red Hook Flicks supporter Movers Not Shakers. Lobster Pound won’t be serving food in the park so please feel free to bring your own picnic to enjoy while watching one more sunset––and movie––down by the pier this summer.

REAL GENIUS . . . coming 8/6!

4 Aug

This summer we’re doubling down on one of the eighties singular stars–Val Kilmer. Before he was Iceman in TOP GUN, he played the wise-cracking Chris Knight in Martha Coolidge’s campus comedy REAL GENIUS. Loosely inspired by actual events at Cal Tech, the film follows a group of university students who realize the “extra credit” project they’ve been working on has a more sinister purpose than they ever suspected. With career-defining performances from Kilmer and costar William Atherton as the ethically-challenged Dr. Hathaway, REAL GENIUS is an eighties comedy classic.

This week’s film is brought to us by Wet Whistle Wines and Dolce Brooklyn. Come early and enjoy live blues and roots music from the Brooklyn Corn Dodgers while snacking on some fantastic gelato and sorbetto from Dolce. Flavors include: Cookies and Cream, Espresso, Strawberry Basil, and Apricot ($5).

The Terminator, coming 7/30!

28 Jul

Join us on the pier this Tuesday for yet another eighties classic––the original Terminator. Before Arnold Schwarzenegger’s relentless stalking machine was reprogrammed to be one of the good guys, he was out to murder Linda Hamilton’s iconic Sarah Connor, who was an unsuspecting waitress before she was the iconic warrior woman of our time.

The-Terminator

This week’s movie is sponsored by two longtime supporters of the series, Waterfront Kitchens and The Good Fork. The latter will be serving up some deliciousness for us in the park on Tuesday night, so come down in time to get your dinner on. On the menu are Hasta la Vista Baby Back Ribs with Japchae Noodles ($12), and a vegetarian options sans ribs ($8). And as always, Steve’s Key Lime Pie will be staying open late for all your tasty dessert needs. The movie starts at sunset. So far the weather forecast for Tuesday is looking good, so come on down and we’ll see you at the pier!

 

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS moving to Rocky’s!

23 Jul

It’s official: we’re moving tonight’s screening to Rocky Sullivan’s. With the ground already damp and the threat of more rain on the horizon, it only makes sense. But we’ve still got a great night in store for you: Nora Brown will be bringing her fierce banjo skills to the evening starting at 7:45 and Brooklyn Ice House will be serving up a dinner of pulled pork sliders, hot dogs, mac cheese, and more. See you at Rocky’s!

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS . . . coming 7/23!

21 Jul

This tuesday is the first of our two kids’ movies this season and also the first night looking like it might be a rain out. But that’s ok, if there are storm clouds on the horizon, you can watch the Rick Moranis classic about an absent-minded professor with a shrinking ray and his wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time kids at our fantastic rain location–Rocky Sullivan’s–instead. Check back here or on our Facebook and Twitter for weather updates on Tuesday. We’ll make the call by 6:00 P.M.

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS is being brought to us this Tuesday by Erie Basin and Brooklyn Ice House. And regardless of whether we wind up watching the movie at the pier or Rocky’s, Ice House will be on hand to serve up a fabulous dinner of pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw ($6), hot dogs ($3), and mac and cheese ($5). Wash it all down with flavored seltzers ($2) and it’s a meal fit for a kid, no matter their size.

But that’s not all, this Tuesday we’ll also be fortunate enough to have some pre-movie music in association with Jalopy Theater. Come early and catch Nora Brown on banjo and Jackson Lynch on fiddle as they play an old-time set from 7:45-8:30. They are not to be missed!

TOP GUN . . . coming 7/9!

7 Jul

Top-Gun-Maverick-Goose

Do you feel the need for speed? Well do we have the movie for you! This year at the pier, we’re doing an entire season of eighties classics and we’re kicking things off with TOP GUN. While we wait with baited breath for next summer’s long-promised sequel, we can relive the glory of the original, which helped launch Tom Cruise’s career into a stratospheric orbit that, over thirty years on, shows little signs of decay.  

Also starring Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, and Tom Skerritt, TOP GUN is brought to you by SHARED Brooklyn and Hometown Bar-B-Que. Lucky for you, our friends at Hometown have cooked up a menu fit for a fighter pilot: “The Maverick,” a sandwich of brisket sausage, fried onions, currywurst sauce, and chives on a toasted baguette, served with potato chips or German potato salad ($10); “The Goose,” a veggie Banh Mi sandwich on a toasted baguette with chips or German potato salad ($10); and, to wash it all down, “The Iceman,” your choice of sweet tea or lemonade over shaved ice ($5). And as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be staying open late so that you can partake of their pies and swingles.

Fire up the jets and we’ll see you at the pier!

Our 2019 Schedule Is Now Live!

5 Jun

RHFINTRO19

We’re just a little over a month away from Red Hook Flicks’ opening day, and we’re so excited we can’t stand it. We’ve doubled-down this year on our love of the eighties and have brought you a slate of classics almost entirely from the decade of shoulder pads, spiral perms, Just Say No, and Jheri curls. That the Reagan Era bears a certain parallel to our current day seemed appropo, as well. Herewith, then, a fitting mix of comedy, bravado, and portents from the future to while away your summer nights–all accompanied by some of Red Hook’s finest food purveyors. Of course absolutely none of this would be possible without our local sponsors.  As the costs of putting on the series continue to increase, we can’t say a big enough thanks to them! Check out the complete schedule here and we’ll see you on the pier.
