215 S Grant Springfield, MO 65806


Our second installment of Friday Flix in Mother’s Backyard is the Coen Brothers’ 2000 O Brother, Where Art Thou?

A love letter to Depression-era Americana, O Brother blends elements of farce and satire in a epic tale with structural debt to Homer’s The Odyssey. All the elements of a Coen Brothers film are here: hapless heroes navigating absurd scenarios with only their wits (or lack thereof), memorable dialogue, skewed humor, indelible imagery, and – why not? – a Busby Berkley-esque sequence. Finish it off with Roger Deakins’ gorgeous cinematography and a brilliant soundtrack by T-Bone Burnett.

It’s bona fide.

Admission is $6 at the gate, with proceeds supporting our partner Moxie Cinema.

Tinga Tacos will be on hand to sell you food, lovers.

Bring a blanket or camp chairs.

Curtains go up when the sun goes down!
