ALIENS . . . coming 8/30!

28 Aug

This Tuesday is our final movie of the season and we’re going out like gangbusters with ALIENS! It’s hard to believe ALIENS turns 30 this year. It’s one of the rare sequels that stands up to the original, in no small part because rather than trying to ape the moody, deliberate thriller of Ridley Scott’s original classic, James Cameron smartly went for a complete tonal shift with this action-packed sci-fi/horror tour-de-force. What both films do share, of course, is one of the great screen heroines of all time: Sigourney Weaver’s kick-ass Ellen Ripley. Joining her is Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Bill Paxton, and Lance Henriksen. You don’t want to miss it.

ALIENS is brought to you by DRY DOCK and FORT DEFIANCE, who will be at the park serving dinner alongside Walter Youngblood’s KingLeche Cremes goats milk ice cream bars. Steve’s Key Lime Pies will stay open late for us serving tarts, pies, swingles, and limeades; and as a special treat for closing night Red Hook’s own Dolce Brooklyn will be there with their handcrafted gelato. It’s going to be dessert heaven.

See you at the pier!
