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!

Check back here for weather updates or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. See you Tuesday.

 

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS . . . coming 8/14!

12 Aug

Do you have what it takes to dive into the mind of a serial killer? Find out this Tuesday at our screening of Silence of the Lambs. Starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster, Silence of the Lambs dominated the Oscars after it’s release in 1991, becoming only the third film in history to win the “Big Five” (Best Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay, and Picture) and the only horror film ever to do so. In part this was due to a tour de force performance by Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter–voted the greatest screen villain of all time by AFI–and an equally compelling performance by Foster as FBI cadet Clarice Starling.

Silence of the Lambs is brought to you by our old friends at Waterfront Kitchens and The Good Fork. For your dining pleasure, Steve’s will be staying open late for us as usual to calm your fears with his key lime pie and the Fork will be serving up a pita full of lamb meatballs with fava bean puree, red dragon cabbage slaw, and cucumber mint yogurt ($10). Veggie option available. BYO chianti.

See you at the pier . . . or else it gets the hose again!

ROADHOUSE . . . coming 7/31!

Come on down to the Double Deuce this Tuesday and spend the evening with your favorite mullet-sporting, philosophy-spouting bouncer. Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch, Sam Elliott, Ben Gazzara, and John Doe of X star in the eighties so-bad-its-amazing cult-classic Roadhouse, brought to you by Rita and The O’Connell Organization. Rita, one of the newest restaurants to arrive on Van Brunt Street, will be on hand serving a dive-bar worthy dinner of nachos (think homemade nacho cheese, smoked beans, pork carnitas–the works!), and Steve’s Key Lime will stay open late so that you can partake of their singular tarts and swingles.

See you on the pier!

HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE . . . coming 7/10!

8 Jul

HandK

Summer’s here and the time is right for movies on the pier. And, if you’ve ever wondered what Ryan Reynolds, Neil Patrick Harris, a rabid raccoon, and those tender little burgers with those little, itty-bitty grilled onions that just explode in your mouth like flavor crystals every time you bite into one have in common, then boy do we have a movie to kick off the summer film season for you! Starring John Cho and Kal Penn, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is brought to you by Movers Not Shakers! and Red Hook Lobster Pound.

Worried you’re going to have an extreme case of the munchies on Tuesday night? Well never fear, because the Pound will be on hand serving their famous lobster rolls ($20), alongside Berkshire pork and bacon hot dogs ($4), chips ($2), lemonade and iced tea ($4 each). And as alway’s Steve’s will stay open late serving the most insanely delicious and authentic Key Lime pies you’ve ever had. See you at the pier!

Summer is upon us and in just one month so are Movies on the Pier! We can hardly wait for the season of sunsets and cinema to begin. As always, we’ve got a fantastic slate of films for you–from eighties cult classics to last year’s Oscar-winner for best animated picture to one of the great political satires of all time–all paired with some of the best food that Red Hook has to offer. In our opinion, it’s the best way to enjoy those lazy days of summer. And none of it would be possible without the support of our local sponsors.  HUGE thanks go out to them! Check out the complete schedule here and we’ll see you on the pier.

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE . . . coming 8/1!

30 Jul

Dig out your Moon Boots and dust off your dance moves, because this Tuesday at the pier we’re showing NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE. The little-indie-that-could became a pop culture phenomenon in 2004, pulling in nearly 45 million dollars at the box-office and making a cultural touchstone of it’s titular geek. Tater Tots and hipster vernacular would never be the same.

NAPOLEON DYNOMITE is brought to you by our friends at Waterfront Kitchens and Pizza Moto. Dinner will be 10″ personal pizzas (plain or pepperoni, $8 each) courtesy of Pizza Moto’s mobile pizza oven, along with limonata, aranciata, and blood orange San Pellegrino sodas ($3). Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open across the parking lot selling their tarts and swingles. And Dolce Brooklyn and KingLeche Cremes will treat us to a selection of handmade gelato, sorbetto, and goat’s milk ice-cream.

See you at the pier!
