29 Jul

road-house-poster

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.

ARMAGEDDON . . . moving to Atelier Roquete!

29 Aug

Don’t cry Ben Affleck–just because the forecast is a washout doesn’t mean tonight’s screening is. That’s because we’re moving ARMAGEDDON to our rain location at Atelier Roquette at 63 Commerce Street between Van Brunt and Richards. Hometown will be making the trip with us, so come hungry for meatball subs and let’s close out this summer’s series right.

See you at Atelier!

ARMAGEDDON . . . coming 8/29!

25 Aug

Friends, it’s hard to believe but this Tuesday is our final film of the season and we’re going out like gangbusters with ARMAGEDDON. This 1998 Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer extravaganza stars Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton, Liv Tyler, Owen Wilson, Keith David, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Steve Buscemi and follows a rag-tag group of deep-core drillers sent into space on a last-ditch mission to prevent an asteroid from demolishing the earth. 

ARMAGEDDON is being brought to you by Sunny’s Bar and Hometown Bar-B-Que, who will be with us at the pier serving up a dinner fit for a roughneck: beef and pork meatball heroes on a seeded Caputo’s hero, slathered in marinara sauce and herbed ricotta (arugula salad on the side).  And for the vegetarians, there’ll be an eggplant and mushroom variation–yum! We’ll take one of each.

And lest you forget, our dessert options are, as always, off the hook with Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies open across the parking lot, Dolce Brooklyn serving their hand-crafted gelato and sorbet, and KingLeche Cremes representing with their goats milk ice cream bars and fresh popcorn.

See you at the pier!

MINIONS . . . coming 8/22!

19 Aug

Join us this Tuesday for our second kids movie of the summer: MINIONS! Following the success of DESPICABLE ME, the yellow gibberish-talking, master-worshiping creatures got their own prequel, which follows lovable Kevin, Bob, and Stuart blindly leading their tribe through the ages, ever in search of the next evil tyrant to serve. Steve Carell returns as the voice of Gru, along with Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, and Geoffrey Rush.

MINIONS is brought to you by our awesome sponsors, Mark’s Pizza and Dolce Brooklyn, who will both be at the pier on Tuesday night serving pizza (plain and pepperoni), and gelato and sorbet. There will also be handcrafted goats milk ice-cream sandwiches from KingLeche Cremes, and as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open late across the parking lot serving their pies, tarts, and swingles.

See you at the pier with the kiddos!

DONNIE DARKO . . . coming 8/15!

13 Aug

Join us this Tuesday for DONNIE DARKO and watch as Jake Gyllenhaal asks the eternal question, “Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?” If you’re tired of waiting for Season 2 of STRANGER THNGS to drop, then Richard Kelly’s time-bending phantasmagoria of Sci-Fi, Horror, teen angst, and 80s nostalgia ought to do you just right. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as our titular hero opposite Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wylie, Jena Malone, Mary McDonnell, and his own sister Maggie. Plus if you pay close attention, you’ll catch the big screen debut of Seth Rogan.

DONNIE DARKO is brought to you by our friends at Red Hook Bait & Tackle and The Good Fork. The Fork will joining us a the pier serving up a dinner of Pork and Chive Sliders with crunchy slaw and kimchi aioli on a potato roll (tofu version available for the veggies, both $7). And as usual, our dessert options are an embarrassment of riches with sweet treats available from Dolce Brooklyn, KingLeche Cremes, and Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies.

See you at the pier!
