Durham’s Carolina Theatre hosts its Retro Film Series on Friday evenings. February 2018 kicks off with “Night of the Comet” and “Teen Witch” on Friday, Feb. 2 2018. Following on Feb. 9 is a fantastic Coen Brothers double feature of “The Big Lebowski” and “Fargo.” I’m excited to announce that Cup of Moe is sponsoring “The Big Lebowski,” one of my all-time favorite films. Then, on Feb. 16, a comedic double header of “Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein” pairs with “Carl Reiner’s The Man With Two Brains.” In a special Sunday Retro Film Series entry, hit up the rescheduled “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” with “Christine” in historic Fletcher Hall.
