10 Jun

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!

 

Our 2017 Schedule is Live!

8 Jun

You wouldn’t know it from the cloudy, soggy weather of late, but we’re just under two weeks out from the official start of Summer. Of course down in Red Hook, summer doesn’t really feel like it’s hit full swing until you’re lounging under the setting sun at Valentino Pier, eating some amazing local food, and watching one of our favorite movies–which is why we’re excited to announce that our  Summer 2017 Red Hook Flicks schedule is now live and can be viewed here! We’ve got another season of great movies planned for you and all thanks to our local sponsors, without whom none of this would happen. So, three cheers for them and see you at the pier!
