The Big Lebowski
Saturday, May 27
“A genial, shambling comedy about a human train wreck…but it’s weirdly engaging, like its hero.” –Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A hilarious pop-culture hash. The Big Lebowski is the best movie ever set mostly in a bowling alley." –Peter Travers, The Rolling Stone
Join us for a Big Lebowski costume contest before the film on Saturday. Dress up as your favorite character and the best look-alikes will win some awesome prizes!
Way out west there was this fella by the name of Jeff Lebowski who called himself “The Dude.” He had a rug that really tied the room together until a pair of muscle heads carrying a marmot pissed on it in a case of mistaken identity. Naturally, The Dude seeks remuneration from the other Jeffrey Lebowski, a Pasadena millionaire, but is drawn into a ransom scheme involving severed toes, nihilists, bowling, and lots of White Russians.
It’s been 25 years since the release of one of the most beloved films in the Coen brothers' impressive catalog, The Big Lebowski, and it’s every bit hilarious now as it was then. Its impeccable cast features Jeff Bridges in his most iconic role, frequent Coen collaborators John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro, as well as Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Sam Elliott. Put on your bathrobe and t-shirt, mix up a white russian, turn up the Creedence—anything but the Eagles, man—and join us to celebrate the anniversary of this timeless classic. You won't regret it, but that’s just, like, our opinion, man.
