RAIN UPDATE: It’s looking a little iffy for later in the evening but since DAZED AND CONFUSED is only 90 minutes and we know how much you all love to be outside, we’re going to roll the dice and stick with it at the pier. That said, we are going to start PROMPTLY at 8:30. So be there early and bring some rain gear!
Long before the McConaissance that brought us MAGIC MIKE, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, the spectacular weirdness of TRUE DETECTIVE and one previously inconceivable Oscar win, Matthew McConaughey was just a young Texan with aspirations of stardom and a penchant for pot and naked bongo playing. This Tuesday we kick off the 2014 summer movie series with the film that gave McConaughey his first big break: Richard Linklater’s 1993 cult-classic DAZED AND CONFUSED! Come watch The Shirtless One wax philosophic about high school girls and why you gotta just keep on livin’ alongside Milla Jovovich, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, and an uncredited Renee Zellweger–and catch a preview of Richard Linklater’s upcoming film BOYHOOD at the same time!
DAZED AND CONFUSED is brought to you by Red Hook Bait and Tackle and The Good Fork, who will be on hand with two delicious choices for dinner: vermicelli with Early Girl Farm vegetables, white soy ponzu, and shredded chicken ($7) or the highly-stoner-approved mac cheese with bacon and cheetos ($5)! Steve’s Key Lime will be open across the way selling their delicious tarts and swingles and our friends from Scout’s Honor Ice Cream are making the trip down from Vermont to bring us their amazing, hand-crafted ice-cream sandwiches and ice pops.
