29 Jul

Come on down to the Double Deuce this Tuesday and spend the evening with your favorite mullet-sporting, philosophy-spouting bouncer. Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch, Sam Elliott, Ben Gazzara, and John Doe of X star in the eighties so-bad-its-amazing cult-classic Roadhouse, brought to you by Rita and The O’Connell Organization. Rita, one of the newest restaurants to arrive on Van Brunt Street, will be on hand serving a dive-bar worthy dinner of nachos (think homemade nacho cheese, smoked beans, pork carnitas–the works!), and Steve’s Key Lime will stay open late so that you can partake of their singular tarts and swingles.

See you on the pier!

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.

HAROLD AND KUMAR GO TO WHITE CASTLE . . . coming 7/10!

Summer’s here and the time is right for movies on the pier. And, if you’ve ever wondered what Ryan Reynolds, Neil Patrick Harris, a rabid raccoon, and those tender little burgers with those little, itty-bitty grilled onions that just explode in your mouth like flavor crystals every time you bite into one have in common, then boy do we have a movie to kick off the summer film season for you! Starring John Cho and Kal Penn, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is brought to you by Movers Not Shakers! and Red Hook Lobster Pound.

Worried you’re going to have an extreme case of the munchies on Tuesday night? Well never fear, because the Pound will be on hand serving their famous lobster rolls ($20), alongside Berkshire pork and bacon hot dogs ($4), chips ($2), lemonade and iced tea ($4 each). And as alway’s Steve’s will stay open late serving the most insanely delicious and authentic Key Lime pies you’ve ever had. See you at the pier!

PURPLE RAIN . . . coming 7/19!

Dearly Beloved…

We lost Prince Rogers Nelson much too soon, and I’m sure many of you, like us, are still shedding a purple tear over his passing. So this week we pay tribute to Minneapolis’s favorite son with the movie that launched him into the stratosphere–PURPLE RAIN.  Starring Prince, Morris Day and the Time, Wendy, Lisa, and the rest of the Revolution, and introducing Apollonia, the loosely autobiographical film won an Oscar for Best Original Score and the accompanying album is widely cited as one of the greatest of all time and is without doubt Prince’s magnum opus.

PURPLE RAIN is brought to you by  Sunny’s and Home/Made, who will be on hand this week serving Home/Made ricotta on charred filone with fresh peaches, heirloom tomatoes, and basil; plus popcorn, lemonade, and special treats sure to make a dove cry. If that doesn’t sate you, Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies is open across the way selling their pies, tarts, and swingles, and KingLeche Cremes will be selling their hand-crafted goats milk ice-cream bars. So much goodness, it’s hard to wait! But hang tough children, Tuesday will be here before you know it.
