The 1998 movie by Ethan and Joel Coen (of Fargo fame) is, by consensus, one of their lesser works, the story of a slacker who's mistaken for a crime boss. But John Turturro's nice turn as a character called Jesus the Bowler is reason enough to see the thing again -- and reason enough for the Denver Film Society to show it at Lucky Strike Lanes at the Denver Pavlions on the 16th Street Mall as part of the society's fund-aising Summer Circuit series.
The event, called The Gutter Ball, will go from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 26. Along with the film, a maximum of 150 $25 ticket holders will also get to bowl, eat bowling alley food and slurp down a drink. The Ball is hosted by Hayden Hirschfeld and Matt Keeney; RSVP to Jennifer Johnson at 303-595-3456, extension 15.
