ZOMBIELAND … coming 8/7

3 Aug

Nut up or shut up!

That’s right ZOMBIELAND, the new zombie cult classic, is coming to Valentino Pier on Tuesday, August 7.

And for all of you who have been trying — and failing — to eat at POK POK, they are the evening’s sponsor, along with REALTY COLLECTIVE. That means… POK POK for dinner!

What’s on the menu? Khao Man Som Tams. What’s that you ask? Here’s what Pok Pok says…

Khao Man Som Tam is a sweet shredded pork cooked in palm sugar and black soy over coconut rice, topped with fried shallots and cilantro, and served with a side of Papaya salad.

We also have popcorn from Home/Made ($1) and tarts from Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies ($3). All proceeds benefit Red Hook Flicks.

And don’t forget to come early to catch the Popeye cartoon brought to us by Sunny’s Bar.

Film rolls at 8:30-ish.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON … Coming 7/24

18 Jul

I love, love, love How to Train Your Dragon. I resisted seeing it — because it’s animated — and left wondering why I’d ever hesitated. The story is great, the dragons are adorable and it’s fun for everyone.

Don’t miss your chance to see it down at Valentino Pier on July 24. It will be memorable. It’s not just for kids. Trust me; you’ll be crying.

Plus, the main dragon looks just like Mr. Red Hook Flicks’ (that’s The Colonel to Red Hookers) cat, Dakota. It’s uncanny really.

Sponsors Brooklyn Ice House and Pickett Furniture are bringing the food. The menu isn’t set yet, but they always do kid-friendly fare (an adult guilty pleasure). Think mac and cheese, pulled pork and more.

We start the show with a Popeye cartoon brought to us by Sunny’s Bar.

Don’t forget the popcorn, either, from Home/Made and Key Lime Pie from Steve’s. Excellent snacks. We’ll also have kid-appropriate drinks on hand.

Film rolls around 8:30 p.m. (or when the light allows).

Reminders:

  1. Quiet, leashed dogs are welcome
  2. Move lawn chairs to the back and sides of the screening area
  3. Bikes should be locked to the fence, not brought on the lawn
  4. Drink at your own risk. The cops ticket
  5. The nearest bathroom is at Fairway
  6. Have fun!

TREMORS is coming…7/17

11 Jul

“Be advised, however, that there are two more, repeat, two more motherhumpers!”

Oh, yes, that means it is time for TREMORS! And how can you go wrong with a Kevin Bacon flick down at the pier? We say you can’t…

Film rolls at 8:30 p.m. (or thereabouts, depending on sunset), with a pre-feature showing of old Popeye cartoons brought to us by Sunny’s Bar.

The food promises to be tasty — and movie appropriate — with Red Hook Lobster Pound and Movers Not Shakers bringing lobster rolls, lobster BLTs and more.

Need snacks? As always, we will have popcorn from Home/Made for $1 and key lime tarts from Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies for $3. (It all goes fast…)

Same rules as always:

  1. There is no bathroom on site. The nearest one is at Fairway. Plan accordingly.
  2. No drinking. Really. The cops ticket.
  3. No bikes on the lawn; lock them up on the fence.
  4. Dogs are welcome, if quiet/on leash.
  5. Lawn chairs only at back of lawn – don’t block people sitting on blankets.

Check out the Tremors trailer on our schedule page.

Just watch out for what’s underground.

LOST BOYS…Tonight!

10 Jul

“One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires” — Grandpa.

Lost Boys night is finally here, and the weather promises to be glorious down at Valentino Pier.

The Lost Boys starts screening at 8:30 p.m. (or as close to that as possible, depending on sundown). But before hand, we’ll be showing a few old Popeye cartoons courtesy of Sunny’s Bar.

Come hungry. Our sponsors, Fort Defiance and Dry Dock, are offering a Lost Boys-themed dinner; plus there’s popcorn from Home/Made and key lime tarts from Steve’s Key Lime Pies.

Just remember these few rules:

1. There is no bathroom on site. The nearest one is at Fairway. Plan accordingly.

2. No drinking. Really. The cops ticket.

3. No bikes on the lawn; lock them up on the fence.

3. Dogs are welcome, if quiet/on leash. (We don’t want to ask you to leave, but if your dog barks, we will.)

4. Lawn chairs only at back of lawn – don’t block people sitting on blankets.

Other than that, have fun with vampires that don’t sparkle.

Sunny’s Presents Popeye

12 Jun

Who is more befitting of Red Hook and our waterfront than Popeye the Sailor Man? Nobody.

Thanks to Sunny’s Bar, we’ll be showing a reel of old Popeye cartoons before each of the season’s films.

Come down, have a laugh, enjoy the food from our sponsors and experience the magic of movies on the pier.

Just don’t forget the spinach. (Or the bug spray.)
