Jack Burton is a reasonable guy who’s just experienced some very unreasonable things, not least of which involves getting dragged into an epic battle between the supernatural forces of good and evil–and all so his friend can save his beloved from a forced wedding to a very wicked and immortal sorcerer named Lo Pan.
Kurt Russell stars alongside a pre-SEX AND THE CITY Kim Cattrall, and Kate Burton in John Carpenter’s cult classic, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. Special thanks to our sponsors for the evening, Find Home Furnishings and PokPok Ny for bringing Carpenter’s modern-day western to the pier this Tuesday. PokPok will be there serving Khao Man Som Tam (green papaya salad served with coconut rice, sweet shredded pork, fried shallots and cilantro–just $10, and the favorite dish of evil sorcerers everywhere, or so we hear); and Steve’s Key Lime, as always, will stay open late so you can partake of their tarty goodness.
See you at the pier!
I don’t know what the hell’s in there, but it’s weird and pissed off, whatever it is.
Fire up your flamethrowers and grab your dynamite because this tuesday Red Hook Flicks brings you THE THING–John Carpenter’s 1982 boy-meets-dog, dog-turns-out-to-be-a-blood-thirsty-shape-shifting-alien classic!
THE THING is brought to you by The O’Connell Organization and Hometown BBQ. For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting Hometown’s grand opening–us included!–you can sample some of their excellent smoked meaty goodness that night! King Leche Cremes will also be on hand serving their hand-crafted goat’s milk ice cream and Steve’s Key Lime will, as always, be open across the parking lot serving their tarts and swingles. A girl could put on some serious pounds during a film series as deliciously fortified as this…
Film rolls at 8:30, (or as soon as it’s dark enough) and check back here if there’s any question of rain.
Otherwise, see you at the pier!
