Cleveland Cinemas won't let that stand. The Capitol Theatre will show Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, a film inspired by the Coen Brothers' arguable opusApril 3-9. On Saturday, April 4, fans can catch the 1996 Oscar-winning classic starring William H. Macy and Frances McDormand at 4:20 and see Kumiko either before or after to save $2.50 on the ticket price.
Nothing like a Saturday afternoon double feature.
In Kumiko, a disgruntled Japanese office worker abandons her job and ventures to the great American North on a quest to find the buried ransom money from the film Fargo. Much like the jovial Thermians from Galaxy Quest, Kumiko believes the events in a fictional film to be real. Indeed, Kumiko believes Fargo is a documentary.
Kumiko's been gathering some rave reviews (and has a riveting, partially true back story), so this one's worth checking out, even if you can't make the double feature.
Cleveland Cinemas advised us that the film is unrated, but "PG-13 in nature," and for those folks interested in the double-feature deal on Saturday, tickets can be purchased at the box-office only.
