O’Brother, Where art thou? August 8th in Bryan Park

Bring a blanket. Bring a snack. Bring the dog. Bring hand sanitizer. O Brother, Where Art Thou? will be screened under the stars in Bryan Park on August 8th.

A trio of escaped prisoners embarks on the adventure of a lifetime as they set out to pursue their freedom and discover buried treasure in the rural South in the 1930s. Endlessly surprising and as giddily and defiantly unclassifiable as all other Coen Brothers films, O Brother, Where Art Thou?  is, among many other things, a celebration of American music. With a score curated and produced by T-Bone Burnett, the movie sings with voices and sounds of some of the best musicians in the country, including Ralph Stanley, the Fairfield Four, Alison Krauss, John Hartford, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch, and the melodies of classics like “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” “I’ll Fly Away,” and the film’s touchstone, “Man of Constant Sorrow.” George Clooney, Tim Blake Nelson and John Turturro star.

Masks are required and seating is limited. Tickets of course are free. Our recent outdoor screening of Toy Story 4 sold out so you should reserve your tickets more or less right away. Here is the link.  He who hesitates is … how does that expression go? No matter. Reserve your seats today.
