RED HOOK FLICKS 2016 SCHEDULE AND FUNDRAISER!

5 Jun

we-need-youFriends, we here at Red Hook Flicks are super excited for this summer’s series–not least of all because its our 10th anniversary of brining you outdoor movies in the park. And we have an amazing slate of films on deck this year–check them out here!–but we need your help to make it happen. Our costs have quadrupled in the last two years and with the support of our beloved sponsors we’re almost–but not quite–there. RHF needs to raise just $4,000 between now and July 12th to cover our projection fees–and that’s where you come in! We’ve launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds. So, if you love watching a great move down on the pier while the breeze comes off the bay and the sun sets over Lady Liberty, won’t you give a few dollars to help keep the little-series-that-could going? It just wouldn’t be summer without it.

NEIGHBORHOOD CHOICE: THE BAD NEWS BEARS . . . coming 8/25!

24 Aug

The-Bad-News-Bears

You voted and we listened! This year’s Neighborhood Choice is the 1976 comedy classic, starring Walter Matthau as Morris Buttermaker–a down-on-his-luck ex-minor-league ball player roped into coaching possibly the worst little league team of all time–and Tatum O’Neal as his unlikely protege Amanda Whurlizer.

THE BAD NEWS BEARS is Presented by Sunny’s Bar and Home/Made, who will be on hand selling their delicious focaccia and bruschetta, and as always Steve’s Key Lime will stay open late to bring you their tarts and swingles. See you at the pier!

THE INCREDIBLES . . . coming 8/18!

16 Aug

incredibles

When THE INCREDIBLES premiered in 2004, this winning satire of super hero films and suburban family values pretty much cemented Pixar’s status as the top animation house in the game, while proving irresistible to both children and adults alike. The film, which went on the win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, stars the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee, Wallace Shawn, and Sarah Vowell. THE INCREDIBLES is brought to you by Red Hook Bait & Tackle and The Good Fork, who will be on hand serving a mighty incredible dinner: Incredible Meatloaf Sammys with Pickles and Potato Chips ($6 for one or two for $10; vegetarian option also available), and Incredible Lemonade ($3). And as a special treat, our friends from Scout’s Honor are making the drive down from Warren, Vermont to bring us their incredible small batch ice cream sandwiches and organic frozen fruit pops. (We highly recommend the French Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich, ourselves!) And of course Steve’s Key Lime will be staying open late across the parking lot selling their tarts, swingles, and limeade. It’s going to be a hell of a feast to beat the heat!

WHEN WE WERE KINGS . . . coming 8/4!

2 Aug

MuhammadAliFistForget SOUTHPAW, join us this Tuesday for one of the greatest boxing films of all time, WHEN WE WERE KINGS.

Leon Gast’s decades-in-the-making documentary chronicles the famous “Rumble in the Jungle” heavyweight championship fight between George Foreman and Muhammad Ali, held in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1974. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary, the film also features James Brown, B.B. King, Don King, George Plimpton, Norman Mailer, and Spike Lee.

WHEN WE WERE KINGS is presented by DRY DOCK WINE + SPIRITS and FORT DEFIANCE. Dinner is courtesy of Fort D this week and they will be serving cold fried chicken fingers with moambe sauce (a spicy peanut sauce that forms the basis of Chicken moambe–the national dish of the DRC!), coleslaw, and potato salad–just $12. And Steve’s Key Lime will be staying open late as usual to dish out their delicious tarts and swingles.

This is going to be a good one folks, so let’s hear it: “Ali boma ye! Ali boma ye!” And we’ll see you at the pier.

FANTASTIC MR. FOX . . . coming 7/21!

18 Jul

UPDATE: In case you’re wondering folks, we’re staying at the pier for tonight’s screening!

Wes Anderson brings his unique brand of fabulist realism to Roald Dahl’s childhood classic. Nominated for Best Animated Feature at both the Oscars and the Golden Globes, the film features the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Willen Defoe, Own Wilson, and for you Pulp fans out there, Jarvis Cocker.

Special thanks to our sponsors for the evening, Waterfront Kitchens and Mark’s Pizza! Mark’s will be selling slices (plain, pepperoni, and supreme) at the park, and Steve’s Key Lime as always will stay open late so you can partake of their tarty goodness.

See you at the pier!

COMING TO AMERICA . . . coming 7/14!

10 Jul

comingtoamerica-blog480

This Eddie Murphy classic answers the age-old question: Where does a poor-little-rich crown prince of Zamunda go to find a bride? Why, Queens of course! (And more precisely, a now unrecognizable Long Island City–but, hey, back then that’s where you went for all your romantic needs, not to mention fast food franchise rip-offs.) Murphy re-teams with TRADING PLACES director John Landis and stars alongside James Earl Jones and Arsenio Hall in this 80s comedy classic, brought to you this Tuesday by MOVERS NOT SHAKERS and RED HOOK LOBSTER POUND! The Pound’s food truck, Big Red, will be on site serving three kinds of lobster rolls ($17 each), hot dogs ($5), and more; Steve’s Key Lime will stay open late slinging their tarts and swingles; and F & M Bagels will be on hand with beverages. So bust out your Soul Glo, cue up your Sexual Chocolate records, and we’ll see you at the pier!

JURASSIC PARK . . . coming 7/7!

5 Jul

We see you sitting there, dejectedly eating your leftover potato salad and hotdogs amid spent roman candles and sparklers, forlorn that the holiday weekend is over. But while the countrywide party that is our nation’s birthday may be behind us, the summer-long party that is Red Hook Flicks is just beginning! And have we got a monster-sized opening night for you.

Just a few weeks ago JURASSIC WORLD broke all box office records to become the biggest opening weekend of all time. Now you can see where it all began with Steven Spielberg’s original dino-chomps-man extravaganza, JURASSIC PARK! Based on Michael Chricton’s blockbuster novel, the film stars Sam Neil, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, and Samuel Jackson as they desperately attempt to outsmart a nasty pack of genetically engineered dinosaurs on the rampage.

JURASSIC PARK is presented by SHARED and EARLY BIRD FOODS + SALVATORE BKLYN. EARLY BIRD and SALVATORE will be serving porchetta sandwiches with home made pickles ($10) and granola bars ($3); STEVE’S KEY LIME will be open across the parking lot and serving their pies, tarts, and swingles; and KING LECHE CREMES will be on site with their hand-crafted goats milk ice cream bars. Show starts at 8:30 PM. See you at the pier!
