DOWN BY LAW at Coolidge Corner

11/16/2015 Coolidge Corner Theatre
7pm

A “neo-Beat noir comedy,” about three hapless men — an unemployed disc jockey (Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Roberto Benigni) — in a Louisiana prison filled with colorful characters and comic misadventures. Join us for a conversation after the screening with A Confederacy of Dunces adapter Jeffrey Hatcher and compare the film to John Kennedy Toole's iconic characters.

Stage & Screen, a collaboration between Coolidge Corner Theatre and Huntington Theatre Company that explores the depictions of shared themes in Huntington productions and acclaimed films, announces four upcoming film screenings and post-screening conversations with Huntington artists and experts. Tickets to each screening are $12 ($9 for Coolidge members with member ID and Huntington Theatre Company subscribers with promo code) and may be purchased online at coolidge.org or at the Coolidge box office, located at 290 Harvard Street, Brookline.

About A Confederacy of Dunces

November 11 — December 20, 2015
Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre

Nick Offerman (“Parks & Recreation”) stars as larger-than-life character Ignatius J. Reilly, the Don Quixote of the French Quarter. He’s overweight, arrogant, eccentric, and still living in his mother’s New Orleans basement in the 1960s. Adapted from the cult classic, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious wild ride, filled with colorful characters and comic misadventures.
