ARMAGEDDON . . . coming 8/29!

25 Aug

Friends, it’s hard to believe but this Tuesday is our final film of the season and we’re going out like gangbusters with ARMAGEDDON. This 1998 Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer extravaganza stars Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton, Liv Tyler, Owen Wilson, Keith David, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Steve Buscemi and follows a rag-tag group of deep-core drillers sent into space on a last-ditch mission to prevent an asteroid from demolishing the earth. 

ARMAGEDDON is being brought to you by Sunny’s Bar and Hometown Bar-B-Que, who will be with us at the pier serving up a dinner fit for a roughneck: beef and pork meatball heroes on a seeded Caputo’s hero, slathered in marinara sauce and herbed ricotta (arugula salad on the side).  And for the vegetarians, there’ll be an eggplant and mushroom variation–yum! We’ll take one of each.

And lest you forget, our dessert options are, as always, off the hook with Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies open across the parking lot, Dolce Brooklyn serving their hand-crafted gelato and sorbet, and KingLeche Cremes representing with their goats milk ice cream bars and fresh popcorn.

See you at the pier!

RESERVOIR DOGS . . . coming 8/9!

7 Aug

Like K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the Seventies Weekend, over here at Red Hook Flicks we just keep on trucking . . . Next in our line-up is Quentin Tarantino’s first and one of his best films–RESERVOIR DOGS. Starring Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, Laurence Tierney, the voice of comedian Steven Wright, and Tarrantino himself, the darkly comic heist-gone-awry picture caused an uproar when it first premiered at Sundance and set the template for Tarrantino’s signature style of rapid-fire, pop-culture infused banter, gleeful profanity, heightened violence, and narrative gymnastics. Itself an homage to Tarrantino’s favorite films, RESERVOIR DOGS helped set off the golden age of independent filmmaking that was the nineties and its imitators are legion.

RESERVOIR DOGS is brought to you by WATERFRONT KITCHENS and PIZZA MOTO, who is motoring over to the park with their hand-made mobile wood-fired oven on Tuesday. They’ll be serving margherita, pepperoni, and mushroom pizzas ($3/slice); San Pelligrino limonata and aranciata ($2.00); and they’ll even make vegan pies on request! KingLeche Cremes will be back with their goats milk ice cream bars. And Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will stay open late as usual for us.

See you at the pier!
