THE DARK CRYSTAL is a go at the Pier!

13 Aug

The weather gods have shined on us. While it may have been looking pretty grey and stormy all day, the radar is showing clear skies ahead for Red Hook this evening and we’re going to keep things out doors, just the way we like them. THE DARK CRYSTAL starts at 8:30 this evening, and to warm things up we’ll be opening with a special short film from our screening partner ART21 about the artist Alex Da Corte. See you at the Pier!

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!

REAL GENIUS . . . coming 8/6!

4 Aug

This summer we’re doubling down on one of the eighties singular stars–Val Kilmer. Before he was Iceman in TOP GUN, he played the wise-cracking Chris Knight in Martha Coolidge’s campus comedy REAL GENIUS. Loosely inspired by actual events at Cal Tech, the film follows a group of university students who realize the “extra credit” project they’ve been working on has a more sinister purpose than they ever suspected. With career-defining performances from Kilmer and costar William Atherton as the ethically-challenged Dr. Hathaway, REAL GENIUS is an eighties comedy classic.

This week’s film is brought to us by Wet Whistle Wines and Dolce Brooklyn. Come early and enjoy live blues and roots music from the Brooklyn Corn Dodgers while snacking on some fantastic gelato and sorbetto from Dolce. Flavors include: Cookies and Cream, Espresso, Strawberry Basil, and Apricot ($5).

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

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

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!

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.

CREED at Valentino Pier on Tuesday 7/17!
