Former Heights resident and still loyal BHB reader and commenter Nabeguy alerts us to the pending release of DVD and BluRay recordings of The Search for One-Eye Jimmy, a Brooklyn-made cult classic movie. The release will be celebrated at an invitation-only (but tell them Nabeguy sent you) event at Montero’s, 73 Atlantic Avenue (just west of Hicks Street) this coming Monday evening from 8:00 to 10:00. More text and a video after the jump.
Some things are just worth waiting for, I suppose– … the Dvd/Blu Ray/etc release event, for the Bklyn cult classic film, “The Search for One-Eye Jimmy,” written/directed by Sam Henry Kass & starring Steve Buscemi, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Beals, John Turturro, Sam Rockwell, Nicholas Turturro, Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Michael Badalucco, etc… The film shot on location in pre-Ikea Red Hook, was released theatrically back in the mid-90’s to critical & cult acclaim, but due to legal issues, was never released on dvd/blu-ray/digitally until now. Please join us & cast members, as we celebrate this hard fought battle, & remember the Brooklyn of our youth… For you hardcore fans, there will be a “Disco Bean” costume/dance contest, (Thank you, Phil Wilentz.) Come dressed as the John Turturro character, (later ripped off by The Simpsons) and show us your moves… In the spirit of the film’s budget, this will be a cash bar event. So don’t be asking us for free drinks. (Okay, maybe a few of you can.)
