Current Movie: The Big Lebowski
About This MovieToggle
The Big Lebowski will screen at the Egyptian Theatre on July 19 as soon as 200 tickets are purchased! Get yours here (no payments are processed until 200 tickets have sold).
Way out west, there was this fella, a fella I wanna tell you about. A fella by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him. But he never had much use for it himself. This Lebowski, he called himself, “The Dude.”
If you know, you know. The Big Lebowski is likely the funniest movie in the Coen Brothers’ sprawling filmography. Part buddy flick, part noir, and part comedy, the Big Lebowski bleeds the Coens’ dry humor and imaginative storytelling.
There’s not much we at BCM can do to sell this one. If you’ve seen it, you’re probably not reading this because you’ve already picked up 20 tickets for everyone you know. If you haven’t seen it, find someone who has and ask them if you should go. They’ll likely answer yes. The Big Lebowski is one of those movies that you really have to see more than once to appreciate. There’s always something new to find that you didn’t catch before.
Sides will split. White Russians will flow. Bathrobes will be donned. Credence will blare. The rug will tie the room together. The Dude will abide.
Synopsis from IMDB:
Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski is the ultimate LA slacker, until one day his house is broken into and his rug is peed on by two angry gangsters who have mistaken him for Jeffrey Lebowski, the LA millionaire, whose wife owes some bad people some big money. The Dude becomes entangled in the plot when he goes to visit the real Lebowski in order to get some retribution for his soiled rug, and is recruited to be the liaison between Lebowski and the captors of his now “kidnapped” wife.
