DONNIE DARKO moving to Atelier Roquette tonight!

15 Aug

Well we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather this summer–but not today, I’m afraid. While the rain will likely clear up by showtime tonight, the ground at the pier is soaking wet. Thankfully the ladies at Home/Made have once again made their catering space at Atelier Roquette available for  just such an occasion. They’ll be opening up their doors at 63 Commerce Street at 7 PM and we’ll be screening at 8:30. And, not only will we have dinner from the Good Fork, and dessert from Dolce Brooklyn and KingLeche available, but we hear wine and beer will be as well.

So grab your blankets and chairs and we’ll see you at Atelier Roquette!

Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai . . . coming 8/8!

5 Aug

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai is Jim Jarmusch’s most unique film and Red Hook Flicks is psyched to bring it to Valentino Pier on tuesday 8/8. Wrapping up the 90s, Ghost Dog, starring Forest Whitaker, tells the story of a loyal hit man with the moral code inspired by the Japanese Samurai tradition. Jarmusch and Whitaker create a surreal world where assassins, hip hop by Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, and cinematic aesthetics collide to a make a thriller ride.

As always our local sponsors make it all possible, Movers Not Shakers! and Lobster Pound. On the menu, Lobster Pound will be gracing us with a delicious fare of Lobster Rolls ($20), burgers (singles $8, double $12), and hot dogs ($4). They will also have frozen watermelon salad for $8.

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open across the parking lot selling tarts and swingles. Dolce Brooklyn and King Leche Cremes will treat us to a selection of handmade gelato, sorbet, and goat’s milk ice cream.

See you at the pier everybody!

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE . . . coming 8/1!

30 Jul

Dig out your Moon Boots and dust off your dance moves, because this Tuesday at the pier we’re showing NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE. The little-indie-that-could became a pop culture phenomenon in 2004, pulling in nearly 45 million dollars at the box-office and making a cultural touchstone of it’s titular geek. Tater Tots and hipster vernacular would never be the same.

NAPOLEON DYNOMITE is brought to you by our friends at Waterfront Kitchens and Pizza Moto. Dinner will be 10″ personal pizzas (plain or pepperoni, $8 each) courtesy of Pizza Moto’s mobile pizza oven, along with limonata, aranciata, and blood orange San Pellegrino sodas ($3). Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies will be open across the parking lot selling their tarts and swingles. And Dolce Brooklyn and KingLeche Cremes will treat us to a selection of handmade gelato, sorbetto, and goat’s milk ice-cream.

See you at the pier!

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON . . . coming July 18!

16 Jul

In the nineties,  L.A.’s N.W.A put gangster rap on the map and made the careers of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Eazy-E. Still considered one of the most influential groups in the history of hip hop, see how N.W.A. got their start this Tuesday with Straight Outta Compton. The film was nominated for an Oscar for best screenplay, and features Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson, Jr. turning up the heat on screen as his father.

Straight Outta Compton is being brought to you by The THE O’CONNELL ORGANIZATION and HOME/MADE. Dinner on Tuesday is courtesy of Home/Made, who will be serving their Ricotta toast with Toybox Tomatoes or Peaches and Basil, Peach and Basil Lemonade, and Truffle Buttered Popcorn. Key Lime Pies are on deck from Steve’s, ice-cream and popcorn from King Leche Cremes, and gelato thanks to Dolce Brooklyn.

See you at the pier!

RAIN?@#$%?!

10 Jul

Well . . . when you’re an outdoor film series, it happens. Sometimes even on opening night. But never fear, Atelier Roquette has once again offered us their gorgeous event space as our rain-out location! And that means means that on top of dinner from Fort Defiance and ice cream and gelato from KingLeche and Dolce Brooklyn, there will be wine and beer for sale. So while we’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed for clear skies, it’s not a bad trade off. Tune in to this space tomorrow, and we’ll make the rain call by 6 PM.

FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF . . . coming 7/11!

7 Jul

 

We know you’re still recovering from your red-white-and-blue, gunpowder-hotdogs-and apple-pie hangover–not to mention the rude reality of returning to work–but don’t despair! While one celebration has ended, another is just beginning. This Tuesday marks the first night in the eight week party that is Red Hook Flicks’ Movies on the Pier and we’re kicking things off right with a John Hughes classic: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. While a career-making film for Matthew Broderick as the titular proto-slacker, the film also stars a veritable who’s who of eighties Hollywood, including: Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jeffrey Jones, Jennifer Grey, Ben Stein, and Charlie Sheen.

Ferris Bueller is brought to you via the generous support of DRY DOCK WINE + SPIRITS and FORT DEFIANCE. Fort D will be on deck that night serving skillet-fried buttermilk chicken, cheddar biscuits, coleslaw, and bread and butter pickles ($13 for the combo); and, as always, Steve’s Key Lime Pies will be open across the parking lot slinging their signature pies and swingles. KingLeche Cremes returns with their goat’s milk ice cream bars and popcorn. And this year Dolce Brooklyn will be gracing us with their handmade gelato and sorbetto.

So, come hungry people and we’ll see you on the pier! Chick chicka chick-ahhh….

Our 2017 Schedule is Live!

8 Jun

You wouldn’t know it from the cloudy, soggy weather of late, but we’re just under two weeks out from the official start of Summer. Of course down in Red Hook, summer doesn’t really feel like it’s hit full swing until you’re lounging under the setting sun at Valentino Pier, eating some amazing local food, and watching one of our favorite movies–which is why we’re excited to announce that our  Summer 2017 Red Hook Flicks schedule is now live and can be viewed here! We’ve got another season of great movies planned for you and all thanks to our local sponsors, without whom none of this would happen. So, three cheers for them and see you at the pier!
