Event description
Sunset Cinema returns in 2019 with a season dedicated to literary greats.

About this Event

Set in Mississippi during the Great Depression, O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), starring George Clooney’s hair, is loosely based on Homer’s The Odyssey. The Coen Brothers send a trio of convicts on a supernatural sepia-toned journey, and through their misadventures, they become a famous bluegrass band. Not how you remember Odysseus’ travels? Sure there are Sirens, but the Coen brothers later admitted to never actually reading the epic poem.

This summer, we will explore movie hits that are based off novels probably covered in your high school English class. As always, the outdoor film screenings made possible by Denver Film Society will include themed pre-show games and entertainment, fun food and beverage options for purchase, costume contests (with prizes!) and more. No need to crack open the CliffsNotes, local partners like Denver Public Library and Book Bar will help us bring these classics to life before we even hit play. Please bring a chair for the movie and come prepared for any weather since these events are rain or shine.

Tickets? Ugh, As If! This is a FREE event, but please RSVP so we know you’re coming.

Schedule:

7 - 8 PM: Costume Contest & Games (Come early to set up your space and grab some food!)

8 - 10 PM: Film Screening (Films will begin screening at dusk)
