We Are A Go Tonight at Valentino Pier!

28 Aug

Since yesterday’s update, the weather gods have spared us and we are a go at Valentino Pier tonight!!! See you at 8:30 for hilarity, hijinx–and pulled pork, HUZZAH!

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN tonight with food by Brooklyn Ice House and snacks by HOME/MADE and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies–yay!

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON … Coming 7/24

18 Jul

I love, love, love How to Train Your Dragon. I resisted seeing it — because it’s animated — and left wondering why I’d ever hesitated. The story is great, the dragons are adorable and it’s fun for everyone.

Don’t miss your chance to see it down at Valentino Pier on July 24. It will be memorable. It’s not just for kids. Trust me; you’ll be crying.

Plus, the main dragon looks just like Mr. Red Hook Flicks’ (that’s The Colonel to Red Hookers) cat, Dakota. It’s uncanny really.

Sponsors Brooklyn Ice House and Pickett Furniture are bringing the food. The menu isn’t set yet, but they always do kid-friendly fare (an adult guilty pleasure). Think mac and cheese, pulled pork and more.

We start the show with a Popeye cartoon brought to us by Sunny’s Bar.

Don’t forget the popcorn, either, from Home/Made and Key Lime Pie from Steve’s. Excellent snacks. We’ll also have kid-appropriate drinks on hand.

Film rolls around 8:30 p.m. (or when the light allows).

Reminders:

  1. Quiet, leashed dogs are welcome
  2. Move lawn chairs to the back and sides of the screening area
  3. Bikes should be locked to the fence, not brought on the lawn
  4. Drink at your own risk. The cops ticket
  5. The nearest bathroom is at Fairway
  6. Have fun!

August 16: THE FAST & THE FURIOUS

11 Aug

Next week we serve up a giant helping of fast cars, fast music and fast men. Yes, it’s two hours of staring a Vin Diesel in his prime. Oh, and that other guy, too. (Plus, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez, if that’s your preference.)

The O’Connell Oganization is sponsoring THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, and The Brooklyn Ice House will be on hand serving dinner. (For Wall-E they did pulled pork, hot dogs, and mac n’ cheese — it was delish! — so we’ll see what they do for TFATF.)

Here’s Greg O’Connell Jr. and his brother, Michael, doing their best Brian and Dominic impression. (Shot by photographer extraordinaire, Craig LaCourt.)

Um, and did y’all know there’s a TFATF 6 coming next year? With Letty rumored to be coming back?!?!?! IMDB says it might be so.

Tonight! WALL-E

2 Aug

Cute robot. That is all you need to know. Just watch this clip.

Movie starts at 8:30 p.m.; the evening’s sponsor, Brooklyn Ice House, will be serving dinner starting around 7 or 7:30 p.m. They’ll have mac and cheese, hot dogs and other kid-friendly fare.

August 2: Wall-E

30 Jul

WALL-E!

Cute robot with sad puppy dog eyes. Need we say more? (Seriously. Compare the photo of WALL-E, above, and my dog, Madeline, below, and tell me those eyes don’t match.)

Come check out Wall-E’s adventures on Tuesday, August 6. Movie starts about 8:30 p.m.

The evening’s sponsor,THE BROOKLYN ICE HOUSE, will be serving dinner that’s kid appropriate: mac and cheese, hot dogs and pork sliders. Plus, there’s always $1 popcorn from our other sponsor, Home/Made.

In fact, here’s Ice House owner Trevor Budd preparing for the festivities:

See you at Valentino Pier!
