PITCH PERFECT moving to Atelier Roquette!

16 Aug

 3As much as we do everything we can here at Red Hook Flicks to keep our screenings at Valentino, there are some days where the weather is just too dicey. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the radar and it’s showing two stubborn bands of rain heading straight for the pier this evening right during prime set up and screening time. And since our rain space at Atelier Roquette is so incredible (and has a liquor license!) we’re going to head on over there for tonight’s showing of PITCH PERFECT. And don’t worry, Big Red, the Pound’s food truck will be joining us there as well so you all can get your lobster roll fix. See you at Atelier! Screening starts at 8:30.

When It Comes to Rain . . .

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.

RAIN?–Well, that’s why we have a back up plan!

7 Jul

We’re an outdoor film series, so we’re always doing the no-rain dance and wishing for clear skies. And today we’ll be watching the forecast closely, hoping we can keep opening night at the pier.

But, if the heavens open up it’s no reason to get down as we also we happen to have an awesome rain location. Our friends and sponsors over at HOME/MADE make their super-cool catering space, Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street, between Van Brunt and Richards–just down the block from Stumptown), available to us for inclement evenings. rain spaceWith couches to lounge on and plenty of room to spread out your blankets and beach chairs, it’s our home away from home when the weather gods send us a foul night. And did we mention the added bonus of wine and beer to wash down those delicious dinners from our sponsors? Well, it’s almost enough to make you pray for a little rain every now and then! So watch this space for updates on where to meet tonight. We’ll make the call by 6 PM.

MADAGASCAR tonight . . . at Atelier Roquette!

12 Aug

With heavy thunderstorms predicted for tonight and a coastal flood warning in effect, we’re going to move it, move it on over to Atelier Roquette for this evening’s screening of MADAGASCAR! But never fear, Icehouse will still be on hand, serving pulled pork, cole slaw, and mac cheese for dinner. The ladies of Home/Made will have beer and wine available. And King Leche Cremes will also be there selling their wonderful goat milk ice cream bars for the kids, in flavors that include Blushing Grasshopper, Chocolate, White Chocolate, and Vanilla with Mixed Berries. Sweet! (Literally!!)

RAIN?–Never fear, Atelier Roquette is here!

11 Aug

We’re an outdoor film series, so we’re always doing the no-rain dance and wishing for clear skies. After all, with a park as beautiful as Valentino Pier, who wouldn’t want to spend the evening lazing in the grass, enjoying cool breezes off of Buttermilk Channel, and eating amazing food from our sponsors?

But we happen to be very fortunate with our rain space this year. Our friends and sponsors over at HOME/MADE have made their super-cool catering space, Atelier Roquette (63 Commerce Street, between Van Brunt and Richards–just down the block from Stumptown), available to us for inclement evenings. rain spaceWith couches to lounge on and plenty of room to spread out your blankets and beach chairs, it’s our home away from home when the weather gods send us a foul night. And did we mention the added bonus of wine and beer to wash down those delicious dinners from our sponsors? Well, it’s almost enough to make you pray for a little rain every now and then!

HUSTLE & FLOW is a go tonight at Atelier Roquette!

15 Jul

hustleflowWell, the weather out there is truly frightening–at least to those of us who have to take those coastal flood warnings seriously–so we’re officially moving operations to our rain location: Atelier Roquette. Show starts at 8:30, but arrive early so you can grab some terrific eats from Home/Made, including citrus ricotta on grilled filone and marinated goat cheese on pizza bianca. And if you’ve been missing the addictive garlic butter popcorn they used to serve during movie nights at the pier, then rejoice because they’ll have that back on deck for tonight! And then there’s the extr- special door prize for having to move the whole thing indoors: BOOZE! Beer and wine will be available. Doors open at 7 PM.
