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!

This Tuesday join us at the pier for one of the great summer family films of all time. E.T. helped define the summer blockbuster with its wildly popular boy-meets-baby-alien-and-goes-head-to-head-against-nepharious-U.S.-government-forces-to-protect-him tale. It features Henry Thomas; Peter Coyote; Drew Barrymore, in what is surely her finest screen performance to date; and a contender for the world’s most expensive long distance call. Can you imagine if they remade E.T. today? He and Elliott would be stuck in development hell at iTunes trying to get their intergalactic telephony app approved. Ah, simpler times. But I digress…

Tuesday’s movie is brought to you by Bait & Tackle. Dinner by The Good Fork — Japanese Short Rib Curry with Farm Vegetables and Purple Rice, mmmm. Only $8! Snacks by Home/Made and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies.

And don’t forget to come early to catch a classic Popeye cartoon courtesy of Sunny’s Bar.

As always, festivities begin circa 8:30 PM.
