The IFC theater sells premium coffee from David Lynch, and the Angelica has that pastry cafe, but this puts both of them to shame: the 'reRun Gastropub Theater,' a new project connected to Dumbo's reBar, will serve food and drinks and screen indie flicks, in a 60 seat space, made mostly of repurposed materials. The menu, from reBar's executive chef Jeremy Leech, will feature several gourmet twists on classic concession stand fare like popcorn drizzled with bacon fat, duck confit sausages with housemade fixins, and pretzels stuffed with garlic mashed potatoes.
The films will be curated by Aaron Hillis, a movie writer who contributes to the Voice and LA Weekly, so expect some serious, left field indie flicks — mostly things that premiered at festivals like Sundance and SXSW but haven't received proper distribution yet. The whole project sounds something akin to Austin's Alamo Drafthouse, but with a distinctively Dumbo touch. The Brooklyn Paper's got some more info on how the project came together, tickets at reRun will be $10, doors are set to open on Friday.
