BARTON FINK at Coolidge Corner

9/11/2017 Coolidge Corner Theatre

New York playwright Barton Fink (John Turturro) comes to Hollywood to write a wrestling picture. Staying in the eerie Hotel Earle, Barton develops severe writer's block when his neighbor, jovial insurance salesman Charlie Meadows tries to help, but a bizzare sequence of events distracts him even further. This 1991 comedy/film noir/mystery/horrow/drama mash-up by the Coen Brothers is often considered one of their best films and earned three awards at the Cannes Film Festival.

After the film, join us for a special conversation with a special guests John and Miranda Adekoje.


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 $13 ($11 for Coolidge members with member ID and Huntington Theatre Company subscribers with promo code) and may be purchased online at or at the Coolidge box office, located at 290 Harvard Street, Brookline.
