THE DARK CRYSTAL . . . coming 8/13!

11 Aug

In just a few weeks Netflix will release it’s DARK CRYSTAL prequel AGE OF RESISTANCE and whether you’re a fan of Jim Henson’s groundbreaking original film, or curious what all the brouhaha is about, Tuesday night’s screening is for you. Directed by Henson and Frank Oz, THE DARK CRYSTAL was a decided departure from typical muppet’s fare. The pioneering fantasy follows Jen, the last of the Gelfling race, as he tries to reunite the warring tribes on his world by restoring the missing piece of a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe.

THE DARK CRYSTAL is brought to us this week by Fulla Shirts and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on hand serving up slices of their classic New York pies. And as always Steve’s Key Lime will be open late to dish out his signature tarts and swingles. So come on down and we’ll see you at the pier!

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS . . . coming 7/23!

21 Jul

This tuesday is the first of our two kids’ movies this season and also the first night looking like it might be a rain out. But that’s ok, if there are storm clouds on the horizon, you can watch the Rick Moranis classic about an absent-minded professor with a shrinking ray and his wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time kids at our fantastic rain location–Rocky Sullivan’s–instead. Check back here or on our Facebook and Twitter for weather updates on Tuesday. We’ll make the call by 6:00 P.M.

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS is being brought to us this Tuesday by Erie Basin and Brooklyn Ice House. And regardless of whether we wind up watching the movie at the pier or Rocky’s, Ice House will be on hand to serve up a fabulous dinner of pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw ($6), hot dogs ($3), and mac and cheese ($5). Wash it all down with flavored seltzers ($2) and it’s a meal fit for a kid, no matter their size.

But that’s not all, this Tuesday we’ll also be fortunate enough to have some pre-movie music in association with Jalopy Theater. Come early and catch Nora Brown on banjo and Jackson Lynch on fiddle as they play an old-time set from 7:45-8:30. They are not to be missed!

TOP GUN . . . coming 7/9!

7 Jul

Top-Gun-Maverick-Goose

Do you feel the need for speed? Well do we have the movie for you! This year at the pier, we’re doing an entire season of eighties classics and we’re kicking things off with TOP GUN. While we wait with baited breath for next summer’s long-promised sequel, we can relive the glory of the original, which helped launch Tom Cruise’s career into a stratospheric orbit that, over thirty years on, shows little signs of decay.  

Also starring Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, and Tom Skerritt, TOP GUN is brought to you by SHARED Brooklyn and Hometown Bar-B-Que. Lucky for you, our friends at Hometown have cooked up a menu fit for a fighter pilot: “The Maverick,” a sandwich of brisket sausage, fried onions, currywurst sauce, and chives on a toasted baguette, served with potato chips or German potato salad ($10); “The Goose,” a veggie Banh Mi sandwich on a toasted baguette with chips or German potato salad ($10); and, to wash it all down, “The Iceman,” your choice of sweet tea or lemonade over shaved ice ($5). And as always Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be staying open late so that you can partake of their pies and swingles.

Fire up the jets and we’ll see you at the pier!

DR. STRANGELOVE or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb . . . coming 8/28!

26 Aug

strangelove

It’s hard to believe but this Tuesday is our final film of the season, and in many ways we’ve saved the best for last. Stanley Kubrick’s Cold War satire DR. STRANGELOVE ranks among not only his greatest films, but as one of the best films ever made and one of the first to be selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Starring Peter Sellers in several roles, including the titular doctor, George C. Scott, and Slim Pickens, the film mines black comedy gold out of Mutually Assured Destruction, following the aftermath of a U.S. Air Force general (Scott) gone completely off the rails and the politicians and military leaders scrambling to walk back the nuclear attack he’s just triggered.

DR. STRANGELOVE is brought to you by Wet Whistle Wines and Pizza Moto, who will be down at the pier slinging pies from their mobile pizza oven. And you know what goes great with pizza? Key lime pie! Steve’s will be open late as always so you can partake of his tarty key lime goodness. See you at the pier!

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS . . . coming 8/14!

12 Aug

lecterclarice

Do you have what it takes to dive into the mind of a serial killer? Find out this Tuesday at our screening of Silence of the Lambs. Starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster, Silence of the Lambs dominated the Oscars after it’s release in 1991, becoming only the third film in history to win the “Big Five” (Best Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay, and Picture) and the only horror film ever to do so. In part this was due to a tour de force performance by Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter–voted the greatest screen villain of all time by AFI–and an equally compelling performance by Foster as FBI cadet Clarice Starling.

Silence of the Lambs is brought to you by our old friends at Waterfront Kitchens and The Good Fork. For your dining pleasure, Steve’s will be staying open late for us as usual to calm your fears with his key lime pie and the Fork will be serving up a pita full of lamb meatballs with fava bean puree, red dragon cabbage slaw, and cucumber mint yogurt ($10). Veggie option available. BYO chianti.

See you at the pier . . . or else it gets the hose again!

John Waters’ HAIRSPRAY . . . coming 8/7!

5 Aug

Here it is. The original cult classic HAIRSPRAY directed by the one and only king of camp John Waters. It’s the early 1960s all over again via 1988. Ricki Lake made her acting debut playing spunky Tracy Turnblad, who sets out to be a dancer on the local tv show, The Corny Collins Show competing against reining queen Amber for the title of Miss Auto Show 1963. From the bouffant to the beehive to dance moves like “the bird” and lots of hairspray, watch Tracy help battle segregation and racial injustice. This star studded film was the last for Divine who passed away shortly after production. Performances by Debbie Harry, Sonny Bono, and Jerry Stiller add to the magic of the movie.

HAIRSPRAY is brought to you by our awesome sponsors who make it all possible. This week we have Sunny’s Bar  and Hometown Bar-B-Que who will be serving up some pit-smoked meat just for you. There will be a Smoked French Dip with chips ($8, chips $1) and lemonade ($2). The combo goes for $10. There will also be a veggie option. As always Steve’s Key Lime Pie will take care of your sweet tooth with their famous key lime pie. They stay open late during the film series just for us.

See you tuesday!

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS . . . coming 7/24!

22 Jul

Strip down to your skivvies (ok, not really) and join us this Tuesday for our first kid’s movie of the series: CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS. Based on the popular children’s novels, CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is voiced by Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Jordan Peele, and Kristen Schaal and answers the age-old question: What would happen if I hypnotized my super-mean principal and turned him into an underwear-clad crimefighter?

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is brought to us by Dolce Brooklyn and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on hand this Tuesday serving their classic New York slices. Pair that up with a gelato from Dolce, who is making a special appearance for this screening, and that’s a meal worthy of a superhero. And speaking of superheroes, we know the forecast is looking pretty damp this week, but our friends at Rocky Sullivan’s are ready to save the day should we get rained out at the pier. Check back here and on Twitter and Facebook on the day-of for updates.
