Neighborhood Choice: ON THE WATERFRONT . . . coming 8/26!

24 Aug

It’s hard to believe but this tuesday is our final film of the 2014 series– and it’s also the one that you, the audience, voted for! Our Neighborhood Choice this season is Elia Kazan’s 1954 classic ON THE WATERFRONT. Set in Red Hook, but filmed in Hoboken, ON THE WATERFRONT is based on a series of Pulitzer-Prize winning articles by Malcolm Johnson that examined the crime-riddled world of the New York docks. The film stars Marlon Brando as  the once-promising boxer Terry Malone as he attempts to stand up to his corrupt union bosses, and also features Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, and, in her big-screen debut, Eva Marie Saint. It was nominated for a dozen Academy Awards, and won eight, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Brando, and Best Supporting Actress for Saint.

ON THE WATERFRONT is brought to you by MOVERS NOT SHAKERS and RED HOOK LOBSTER POUND, who will be serving their extraordinary lobster rolls (both Connecticut and Maine styles–$16), Red Hook Dawgs ($4), and Cape Cod Chips ($2). Plus as always, Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open late across the parking lot and selling their tarts, pies, and swingles, King Leche Cremes will be on hand with their hand-crafted goats milk ice cream, and Heba Deli will be serving beverages. So come on down and celebrate the end of summer in style!

 

PARIS IS BURNING . . . coming 8/5!

3 Aug

 

Paris-Is-Burning-Movie-Still-1

Come find out where Madonna co-opted voguing from this tuesday at the pier with PARIS IS BURNING. Jennie Livingston’s award-winning 1990 documentary about New York City’s drag ball culture explores the lives of Latin- and African-American drag queens in their quest for a different kind of realness–and the way they redefine the meaning of identity and family along the way.

PARIS IS BURNING is presented by FIND HOME FURNISHINGS and POK POK, who will be on hand serving a fierce Coconut Curry–Khanom Jiin Naam Phrik, to be exact: thin rice vermicelli topped with a thick southern Thai curry of coconut cream, prawns, and toasted mung beans, just $8!–plus their signature House Roasted Peanuts for $4. Dessert by King Leche Cremes and Steve’s Key Lime Pie, and beverages available from Heba Deli.

We’ll be throwing shade down at the pier at 8:30–see you there!

10 Aug

the-thing_1982

I don’t know what the hell’s in there, but it’s weird and pissed off, whatever it is.

Fire up your flamethrowers and grab your dynamite because this tuesday Red Hook Flicks brings you THE THING–John Carpenter’s 1982 boy-meets-dog, dog-turns-out-to-be-a-blood-thirsty-shape-shifting-alien classic!

THE THING is brought to you by The O’Connell Organization and Hometown BBQ. For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting Hometown’s grand opening–us included!–you can sample some of their excellent smoked meaty goodness that night! King Leche Cremes will also be on hand serving their hand-crafted goat’s milk ice cream and Steve’s Key Lime will, as always, be open across the parking lot serving their tarts and swingles.  A girl could put on some serious pounds during a film series as deliciously fortified as this…

Film rolls at 8:30, (or as soon as it’s dark enough) and check back here if there’s any question of rain.

Otherwise, see you at the pier!

STRICTLY BALLROOM . . . coming 7/30!

26 Jul

strictly ballroom

This Tuesday on the Pier, Baz Luhrmann’s first and possibly best film: STRICTLY BALLROOM!

The inaugural installment of his “Red Curtain Trilogy,” which went on to include ROMEO + JULIET and MOULIN ROUGE, STRICTLY BALLROOM is his lavish and laugh-out-loud funny send-up of Australian competitive dance culture. It’s like SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER by way of Christopher Guest. And you owe it to yourself to see this, if only to cleanse from your mind the mess that was GATSBY and remind yourself what an amazing filmmaker Luhrmann can be.

Our sponsors for the evening are Waterfront Kitchens and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on site serving fresh pizza by the slice. Steve’s Key Lime will be open across the way serving tarts and swingles, and our concession stand will have water, San Pellegrino, and more.

Film rolls at 8:30, or as soon as it’s dark enough, and a classic Popeye cartoon kicks things off.

Now, “Show me your Paso Doble!”

SHAFT (2000) . . . coming July 23!

kung fu panda

In the Valley of Peace, Po the Panda finds himself chosen as the Dragon Warrior despite the fact that he is, well, a little on the portly side. Not to mention lazy. And knows sweet f*%k all about martial arts. But this of course does not stop him from rising to the challenge of becoming a master warrior and leading The Furious Five in a battle against the sinister snow leopard Tai Lung! If you like your martial arts heroes black and white and furry all over, then this one’s for you!

Kung Fu Panda is brought to you by Red Hook Bait and Tackle and The Good Fork.

And what’s on the menu for dinner you might ask? Well, Kung Pao Panda of course!

(We hear it tastes just like chicken.)

And for our vegetarian friends, there’s Kung Pao Tofu!

(Tastes just like panda.)

Both are served with rice and just $7. Yum! And in addition to Steve’s Key Lime Pies, our friend’s from Scout’s Honor Ice Cream will be making the drive all the way from Vermont to bring you their handcrafted frozen treats. Ska-doosh!
