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.

Jack Burton is a reasonable guy who’s just experienced some very unreasonable things, not least of which involves getting dragged into an epic battle between the supernatural forces of good and evil–and all so his friend can save his beloved from a forced wedding to a very wicked and immortal sorcerer named Lo Pan.

Kurt Russell stars alongside a pre-SEX AND THE CITY Kim Cattrall, and Kate Burton in John Carpenter’s cult classic, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. Special thanks to our sponsors for the evening, Find Home Furnishings and PokPok Ny for bringing Carpenter’s modern-day western to the pier this Tuesday.  PokPok will be there serving Khao Man Som Tam (green papaya salad served with coconut rice, sweet shredded pork, fried shallots and cilantro–just $10, and the favorite dish of evil sorcerers everywhere, or so we hear); and Steve’s Key Lime, as always, will stay open late so you can partake of their tarty goodness.

See you at the pier!

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.

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.

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!
