BOYZ N THE HOOD . . . coming 8/20!

18 Aug

In honor of the late, great John Singleton, who left us all-too-early this year, we’re screening his first and arguably greatest film this Tuesday: BOYZ N THE HOOD. Starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., Angela Bassett, Ice Cube, and Laurence Fishburne, the film depicts the lives of three young men growing up in South Central L.A. Loosely based on events in Singleton’s own life and people he knew, the film revolutionized black cinema at the time and launched the careers of its stars. Singleton, just twenty-four at the time, received an Oscar nomination for Best Director, making him both the first African-American and the youngest person ever to be nominated for the award.

BOYZ N THE HOOD is brought to you by the O’Connell Organization. And while there won’t be dinner served at the pier this Tuesday, we do encourage everyone to check out Red Hook’s latest restaurant, Hoek Pizza, located just across from Valentino Park on Ferris Street. They’re open until 11 P.M. and serve their Roman-style brick oven pizza to go. And as always, Steve’s will stay open late so you can partake of their famous key lime pies and swingles.

See you at the pier!

THE DARK CRYSTAL is a go at the Pier!

13 Aug

The weather gods have shined on us. While it may have been looking pretty grey and stormy all day, the radar is showing clear skies ahead for Red Hook this evening and we’re going to keep things out doors, just the way we like them. THE DARK CRYSTAL starts at 8:30 this evening, and to warm things up we’ll be opening with a special short film from our screening partner ART21 about the artist Alex Da Corte. See you at the Pier!

THE DARK CRYSTAL . . . coming 8/13!

11 Aug

In just a few weeks Netflix will release it’s DARK CRYSTAL prequel AGE OF RESISTANCE and whether you’re a fan of Jim Henson’s groundbreaking original film, or curious what all the brouhaha is about, Tuesday night’s screening is for you. Directed by Henson and Frank Oz, THE DARK CRYSTAL was a decided departure from typical muppet’s fare. The pioneering fantasy follows Jen, the last of the Gelfling race, as he tries to reunite the warring tribes on his world by restoring the missing piece of a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe.

THE DARK CRYSTAL is brought to us this week by Fulla Shirts and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on hand serving up slices of their classic New York pies. And as always Steve’s Key Lime will be open late to dish out his signature tarts and swingles. So come on down and we’ll see you at the pier!

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!

TOP GUN . . . coming 7/9!

7 Jul

Top-Gun-Maverick-Goose

Do you feel the need for speed? Well do we have the movie for you! This year at the pier, we’re doing an entire season of eighties classics and we’re kicking things off with TOP GUN. While we wait with baited breath for next summer’s long-promised sequel, we can relive the glory of the original, which helped launch Tom Cruise’s career into a stratospheric orbit that, over thirty years on, shows little signs of decay.  

Also starring Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, and Tom Skerritt, TOP GUN is brought to you by SHARED Brooklyn and Hometown Bar-B-Que. Lucky for you, our friends at Hometown have cooked up a menu fit for a fighter pilot: “The Maverick,” a sandwich of brisket sausage, fried onions, currywurst sauce, and chives on a toasted baguette, served with potato chips or German potato salad ($10); “The Goose,” a veggie Banh Mi sandwich on a toasted baguette with chips or German potato salad ($10); and, to wash it all down, “The Iceman,” your choice of sweet tea or lemonade over shaved ice ($5). And as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be staying open late so that you can partake of their pies and swingles.

Fire up the jets and we’ll see you at the pier!

DR. STRANGELOVE or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb . . . coming 8/28!

26 Aug

strangelove

It’s hard to believe but this Tuesday is our final film of the season, and in many ways we’ve saved the best for last. Stanley Kubrick’s Cold War satire DR. STRANGELOVE ranks among not only his greatest films, but as one of the best films ever made and one of the first to be selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Starring Peter Sellers in several roles, including the titular doctor, George C. Scott, and Slim Pickens, the film mines black comedy gold out of Mutually Assured Destruction, following the aftermath of a U.S. Air Force general (Scott) gone completely off the rails and the politicians and military leaders scrambling to walk back the nuclear attack he’s just triggered.

DR. STRANGELOVE is brought to you by Wet Whistle Wines and Pizza Moto, who will be down at the pier slinging pies from their mobile pizza oven. And you know what goes great with pizza? Key lime pie! Steve’s will be open late as always so you can partake of his tarty key lime goodness. See you at the pier!

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!
