RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK . . . coming 7/12!

9 Jul

raiders 2This Tuesday Red Hook Flicks kicks off the 2016 series with RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Steven Spielberg’s homage to classic Saturday afternoon serial films, RAIDERS is often cited as one of the greatest movies of all time. Harrison Ford’s turn as as archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones helped solidify his rising star and adventure hero status as he outwits, out-whips, and out runs a host of nasty adversaries in a race to find the Ark of the Covenant before it falls into the hands of the Nazis.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK is presented by RED HOOK BAIT & TACKLE and THE GOOD FORK, and for dinner the good people of The Good Fork are serving a special White Asp Bowl in honor of Mr. Jones and his special relationship with serpents: chilled somen noodles with kimchi spiked chili sauce, asian pear, cucumbers, summer vegetables, and soft boiled egg–what better way to beat the heat? STEVE’S AUTHENTIC KEY LIME PIES will be staying open late as always to dish out their singular key lime pies, tarts, swingles, and limeade. (Seriously, you have not had key lime pie until you’ve had Steve’s.) And Walter Youngblood is back this season with KING LECHE CREMES, his hand-crafted goats milk ice-cream bars. Sweet! The show starts at 8:30–or just as soon as it’s dark enough. See you at the pier!

THE INCREDIBLES . . . coming 8/18!

16 Aug

incredibles

When THE INCREDIBLES premiered in 2004, this winning satire of super hero films and suburban family values pretty much cemented Pixar’s status as the top animation house in the game, while proving irresistible to both children and adults alike. The film, which went on the win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, stars the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee, Wallace Shawn, and Sarah Vowell. THE INCREDIBLES is brought to you by Red Hook Bait & Tackle and The Good Fork, who will be on hand serving a mighty incredible dinner: Incredible Meatloaf Sammys with Pickles and Potato Chips ($6 for one or two for $10; vegetarian option also available), and Incredible Lemonade ($3). And as a special treat, our friends from Scout’s Honor are making the drive down from Warren, Vermont to bring us their incredible small batch ice cream sandwiches and organic frozen fruit pops. (We highly recommend the French Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich, ourselves!) And of course Steve’s Key Lime will be staying open late across the parking lot selling their tarts, swingles, and limeade. It’s going to be a hell of a feast to beat the heat!

DAZED AND CONFUSED . . . coming 7/8!

6 Jul

DazedMMRAIN UPDATE: It’s looking a little iffy for later in the evening but since DAZED AND CONFUSED is only 90 minutes and we know how much you all love to be outside, we’re going to roll the dice and stick with it at the pier. That said, we are going to start PROMPTLY at 8:30. So be there early and bring some rain gear!

Long before the McConaissance that brought us MAGIC MIKE, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, the spectacular weirdness of TRUE DETECTIVE and one previously inconceivable Oscar win, Matthew McConaughey was  just a young Texan with aspirations of stardom and a penchant for pot and naked bongo playing. This Tuesday we kick off the 2014 summer movie series with the film that gave McConaughey his first big break: Richard Linklater’s 1993 cult-classic DAZED AND CONFUSED! Come watch The Shirtless One wax philosophic about high school girls and why you gotta just keep on livin’ alongside Milla Jovovich, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, and an uncredited Renee Zellweger–and catch a preview of Richard Linklater’s upcoming film BOYHOOD at the same time!

DAZED AND CONFUSED is brought to you by Red Hook Bait and Tackle and The Good Fork, who will be on hand with two delicious choices for dinner: vermicelli with Early Girl Farm vegetables, white soy ponzu, and shredded chicken ($7) or the highly-stoner-approved mac cheese with bacon and cheetos ($5)! Steve’s Key Lime will be open across the way selling their delicious tarts and swingles and our friends from Scout’s Honor Ice Cream are making the trip down from Vermont to bring us their amazing, hand-crafted ice-cream sandwiches and ice pops.

Dude. 

Fundraiser Update: BREAKING NIGHT screens this sunday

17 May

breaking night

At this Sunday’s fundraiser we have a couple of special shorts screening that we’re super excited about, including BREAKING NIGHT by Red Hook’s own Yolanda Ross. You might recognize Yolanda from her acting work on HBO’s TREME or on stage with New York’s Labrynth Theater Company.  BREAKING NIGHT, also starring Clarke Peters (THE WIRE, TREME),  is her directorial debut and won Best Short Film at last year’s San Diego Indie Film Festival.

We’re really honored that Yolanda’s sharing her work with us, so come on out to Bait and Tackle this Sunday at 5, have some great food from our sponsors, vote for Neighborhood Choice, find out what’s screening on the pier this summer, and see BREAKING NIGHT!
