When It Comes to Rain . . .

10 Aug


We’ve got game–thanks largely to our sponsors at HOME/MADE who have made their gorgeous event space, Atelier Roquette available to us for foul weather screenings. In a perfect world, would we prefer to watch the sun set over Valentino Pier while enjoying cool breezes off the water and waiting for the evening’s film to begin? Of course! But this is about the best rain location we could ask for–and they have a liquor license. Small bonuses, you know? So while we keep our eyes to the sky for the next screening, you can rest assured that the show will most awesomely go on–rain or shine.



HIGH FIDELITY . . . coming 8/11!

9 Aug


What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

Decide for yourself this Tuesday at the pier when John Cusack will wax philosophical about life, love, and music in Stephen Frears’ adaptation of Nick Hornby’s best-selling novel, HIGH FIDELITY! Also starring Jack Black, Lisa Bonet, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Joan Cusack, Lili Taylor, Tim Robbins, and a walk-on part by The Boss, HIGH FIDELITY is brought to you by PICKETT FURNITURE and BROOKLYN ICE HOUSE. ICE HOUSE will be on hand serving up smoked pulled-pork sandwiches($6), and mac & cheese ($4), and sodas and water; and STEVE’S KEY LIME PIES will be staying open late to serve their pies, swingles, and limeades.

See you at the pier!
