If you frequently quote The Big Lebowski, sing "Man of Constant Sorrow," or reference "Fargo," the Castro Theatre will be your Mecca this weekend as they host "Sorry, Dude: The Abridged Coen Brothers," a Coen Brothers movie marathon, from February 28 to March 2. Two films will be screened each day for a total of eight, and span the Coen Brothers' careers, from their most popular films to the lesser-known.
Joel and Ethan Coen, who just won the 2008 Academy Award for Best Picture for "No Country for Old Men," have been directing and filming movies together since 1984. They are so similiar in their vision of their films that actors can approach either brother with a question and get the same answer. They are most famous for directing and producing "Fargo," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" "The Big Lebowski" and now "No Country for Old Men."
The Castro will kick off their event with "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" at 7 PM. The full schedule looks like this:
Thursday, February 28
7:00 PM: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
9:10 PM: The Man Who Wasn't There
