Fathom Events and Park Circus are proud to announce that the Coen Brothers’ genre-undermined snow thriller Fargo will return to the screen for a special commitment on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. The 1996 classic by Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) will be shown in select cinemas across the country on May 2nd and 5th.
Fargo 25th anniversary tickets will be available from Friday April 2nd. The participating locations and tickets can be found at fathomevents.com. The date of ticket sales may vary depending on the local cinema reopening. So please check back often. (Theater and participants can change).
The remake won two Oscar awards (Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress for Frances McDormand) and follows the theatrical release of McDormand’s highly anticipated latest project Nomadland in early 2021.
Fargo is hailed as a dark comic version of the thriller genre and is also a film of great visual beauty. The cinematography is by Roger Deakins, a regular at Coen Brothers. When an unhappy husband finds himself in an insurmountable debt, a series of absurdities entangles him in two incompetent crooks. Her crimes come under the jurisdiction of a heavily pregnant Minnesota police chief, Marge Gunderson (McDormand), who is making no small effort to resolve the case.
In Fargo, Jerry, a small-town Minnesota auto salesman, is bursting at the seams with debt … but he has a plan. He will hire two thugs to kidnap his wife for a large ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It’s going to be a breeze and nobody gets hurt … until people start dying. Step into Police Chief Marge, an investigator who drinks coffee, wears a parka, is extremely pregnant and stops at nothing to get her husband. And if you think your little investigative skills will give crooks a run for their ransom … you bet!
