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).

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS . . . coming 7/24!

22 Jul

Strip down to your skivvies (ok, not really) and join us this Tuesday for our first kid’s movie of the series: CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS. Based on the popular children’s novels, CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is voiced by Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Jordan Peele, and Kristen Schaal and answers the age-old question: What would happen if I hypnotized my super-mean principal and turned him into an underwear-clad crimefighter?

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is brought to us by Dolce Brooklyn and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on hand this Tuesday serving their classic New York slices. Pair that up with a gelato from Dolce, who is making a special appearance for this screening, and that’s a meal worthy of a superhero. And speaking of superheroes, we know the forecast is looking pretty damp this week, but our friends at Rocky Sullivan’s are ready to save the day should we get rained out at the pier. Check back here and on Twitter and Facebook on the day-of for updates.

ARMAGEDDON . . . moving to Atelier Roquete!

29 Aug

Don’t cry Ben Affleck–just because the forecast is a washout doesn’t mean tonight’s screening is. That’s because we’re moving ARMAGEDDON to our rain location at Atelier Roquette at 63 Commerce Street between Van Brunt and Richards. Hometown will be making the trip with us, so come hungry for meatball subs and let’s close out this summer’s series right.

See you at Atelier!

ARMAGEDDON . . . coming 8/29!

25 Aug

Friends, it’s hard to believe but this Tuesday is our final film of the season and we’re going out like gangbusters with ARMAGEDDON. This 1998 Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer extravaganza stars Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton, Liv Tyler, Owen Wilson, Keith David, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Steve Buscemi and follows a rag-tag group of deep-core drillers sent into space on a last-ditch mission to prevent an asteroid from demolishing the earth. 

ARMAGEDDON is being brought to you by Sunny’s Bar and Hometown Bar-B-Que, who will be with us at the pier serving up a dinner fit for a roughneck: beef and pork meatball heroes on a seeded Caputo’s hero, slathered in marinara sauce and herbed ricotta (arugula salad on the side).  And for the vegetarians, there’ll be an eggplant and mushroom variation–yum! We’ll take one of each.

And lest you forget, our dessert options are, as always, off the hook with Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies open across the parking lot, Dolce Brooklyn serving their hand-crafted gelato and sorbet, and KingLeche Cremes representing with their goats milk ice cream bars and fresh popcorn.

See you at the pier!

MINIONS . . . coming 8/22!

19 Aug

Join us this Tuesday for our second kids movie of the summer: MINIONS! Following the success of DESPICABLE ME, the yellow gibberish-talking, master-worshiping creatures got their own prequel, which follows lovable Kevin, Bob, and Stuart blindly leading their tribe through the ages, ever in search of the next evil tyrant to serve. Steve Carell returns as the voice of Gru, along with Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, and Geoffrey Rush.

MINIONS is brought to you by our awesome sponsors, Mark’s Pizza and Dolce Brooklyn, who will both be at the pier on Tuesday night serving pizza (plain and pepperoni), and gelato and sorbet. There will also be handcrafted goats milk ice-cream sandwiches from KingLeche Cremes, and as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open late across the parking lot serving their pies, tarts, and swingles.

See you at the pier with the kiddos!

DONNIE DARKO moving to Atelier Roquette tonight!

15 Aug

Well we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather this summer–but not today, I’m afraid. While the rain will likely clear up by showtime tonight, the ground at the pier is soaking wet. Thankfully the ladies at Home/Made have once again made their catering space at Atelier Roquette available for  just such an occasion. They’ll be opening up their doors at 63 Commerce Street at 7 PM and we’ll be screening at 8:30. And, not only will we have dinner from the Good Fork, and dessert from Dolce Brooklyn and KingLeche available, but we hear wine and beer will be as well.

So grab your blankets and chairs and we’ll see you at Atelier Roquette!

DONNIE DARKO . . . coming 8/15!

13 Aug

Join us this Tuesday for DONNIE DARKO and watch as Jake Gyllenhaal asks the eternal question, “Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?” If you’re tired of waiting for Season 2 of STRANGER THNGS to drop, then Richard Kelly’s time-bending phantasmagoria of Sci-Fi, Horror, teen angst, and 80s nostalgia ought to do you just right. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as our titular hero opposite Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wylie, Jena Malone, Mary McDonnell, and his own sister Maggie. Plus if you pay close attention, you’ll catch the big screen debut of Seth Rogan.

DONNIE DARKO is brought to you by our friends at Red Hook Bait & Tackle and The Good Fork. The Fork will joining us a the pier serving up a dinner of Pork and Chive Sliders with crunchy slaw and kimchi aioli on a potato roll (tofu version available for the veggies, both $7). And as usual, our dessert options are an embarrassment of riches with sweet treats available from Dolce Brooklyn, KingLeche Cremes, and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies.

See you at the pier!
