Fargo Fans Can See Movie Inspired by Coen Bros. Flick at the Capitol (and Fargo Tomorrow)

Been a minute since you've seen Fargo? 

Cleveland Cinemas won't let that stand. The Capitol Theatre will show Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, a film inspired by the Coen Brothers' arguable opus April 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.

Here's the trailer for Kumiko:
