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!

COCO . . . coming 8/21!

19 Aug

Señoras y señores join us for COCO! This family movie was a hit in theaters, grossing over $800 million worldwide. Its sensitive portrayal of Mexican culture and rich language earned COCO great accolades by critics and moviegoers alike. Set against the backdrop of a small town in Mexico during the Day of the Dead celebrations, we follow young Miguel struggling to make sense of his family’s generations-old ban on music. His own talent and passion for old rancheras sung by his idol, the late Hector De La Cruz, incite a yearning to break with his family’s tradition. In the process he pays tribute to the rich musical heritage of his country and the mythology behind the Day of the Dead when he crosses over to the Land of the Dead. Stunning visuals and catchy songs add to this magical world.

Coco is brought to you by Brooklyn Ice House and Erie Basin.

Ice House will be serving up some tasty grub of pulled pork sandwiches ($6), mac and cheese ($5), and flavored seltzer ($2).

Don’t forget to save room for Steve’s singular tarts, swingles- or what heck, just get a whole pie!

Check back here for weather updates or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. See you Tuesday.

 

THE LEGO MOVIE…coming tomorrow, 7/26!

25 Jul

This Tuesday we’ll be showing the first kids’ movie of the 2016 season, THE LEGO MOVIE. The animated hit from 2014 was directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and features an eclectic slew the voices of of some of our favorite actors including Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, and Elizabeth Banks (we’ll all be seeing Ms. Banks onscreen in a couple of weeks when we show PITCH PERFECT on August 16). Don’t be fooled by the “kids’ movie” label; when it came out a couple of years ago, A.O. Scott, the notoriously hard-to-please film critic at the New York Times, said THE LEGO MOVIE “hums with wit and imagination.”

THE LEGO MOVIE is presented Pickett Furniture, a beloved longtime sponsor of Red Hook Flicks,  and The Brooklyn Ice House, another neighborhood staple and staunch supporter of the film series. The Ice House is serving dinner, and there’ll be some special treats available too; in addition to the traditional pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw ($5) and macaroni and cheese ($5), Ice House is serving empanadas! Short rib or green chicken chili & cheese, $5 each. For dessert there’s always Steve’s Key Lime Pie, located just outside the park, and KingLeche Cremes will be on hand selling hand-crafted goat’s milk ice cream pops.

So come down to the pier tomorrow night and enjoy the food, the sunset and the movie. See you there!

 

HIGH FIDELITY . . . coming 8/11!

9 Aug

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

Decide for yourself this Tuesday at the pier when John Cusack will wax philosophical about life, love, and music in Stephen Frears’ adaptation of Nick Hornby’s best-selling novel, HIGH FIDELITY! Also starring Jack Black, Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Joan Cusack, Lili Taylor, Tim Robbins, and a walk-on part by The Boss, HIGH FIDELITY is brought to you by PICKETT FURNITURE and BROOKLYN ICE HOUSE. ICE HOUSE will be on hand serving up smoked pulled-pork sandwiches($6), and mac & cheese ($4), and sodas and water; and STEVE’S KEY LIME PIES will be staying open late to serve their pies, swingles, and limeades.

See you at the pier!

With heavy thunderstorms predicted for tonight and a coastal flood warning in effect, we’re going to move it, move it on over to Atelier Roquette for this evening’s screening of MADAGASCAR! But never fear, Icehouse will still be on hand, serving pulled pork, cole slaw, and mac cheese for dinner. The ladies of Home/Made will have beer and wine available. And King Leche Cremes will also be there selling their wonderful goat milk ice cream bars for the kids, in flavors that include Blushing Grasshopper, Chocolate, White Chocolate, and Vanilla with Mixed Berries. Sweet! (Literally!!)
