Red Hook Films are shown at Valentino Pier, on the Brooklyn waterfront. The screen is set up in front of a Civil War-era warehouse, with sweeping views of the harbor and the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop.

In case of rain, movies will be shown at Red Hook Bait and Tackle, located at the corner Pioneer and Van Brunt streets. If it is raining, assume they’ll be at Bait and Tackle. If it was raining earlier, the grounds could still be mucky. Please watch this site http://redhookfilms.org/rain/ for an official “rain” call by 6 p.m. on movie nights.
