Sponsor Photos Are Here!

28 Jun

Leisah Swenson and Monica Byrne sweeten up Home/Made.

Each year, Craig LaCourt shoots photographs of our sponsors so you can get to know them face-to-face. This year, he went for a heroic look and asked each person to bring something that is essential to his or her business. The results show both great portraiture and the amazing personalities of the people who stand behind Red Hook Flicks.

Above you see Leisah Swenson and Monica Byrne of Home/Made. Below is Susan Povich from the Red Hook Lobster Pound.

Check out this year’s entire series on our Sponsor page.

LL Cool J + SamJack!

20 Jul

Tonight’s the night! LL Cool J + SamJack + Red Hook Lobster Pound = the awesome. Seriously, Deep Blue Sea is *so* bad it’s great.

Stroll on down to Valentino Pier about 8 p.m. to stake out a spot. The show will roll around 8:30 p.m.

And don’t worry about running late and not packing a picnic: Tonight’s sponsor, Red Hook Lobster Pound, will be on site selling lobster and shrimp rolls ($15/$8). Plus, we’ll be offering gourmet popcorn from local winebar Home/Made for $1 per bag with proceeds benefitting the series.

We welcome lawn chairs, picnics and well-behaved (read: quiet) dogs on leash.

See you at the movies!

Deep Blue Sea

14 Jul

Goonies was a huge success last night! Nearly 200 people turned up — and it didn’t even rain!

But now it’s time to get ready for next week’s show: DEEP BLUE SEA.

Intelligent sharks set for vengeance. LL Cool J. Cringe-inducing one-liners. What’s not to love?

The Red Hook Lobster Pound is sponsoring the evening and will be on site selling lobster and shrimp rolls. (Take that crustaceans, lest you get any man-eating ideas from the sharks.) Lobster is $15/shrimp $8.

And, we’ll have more Home/Made popcorn on sale for $1, with all proceeds benefiting the film series.

See you at the movies!
