Hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since Joel and Ethan Coen's quirky crime comedy The Big Lebowski
rolled into theaters, introducing the world to L.A. slacker Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski and a colorful supporting cast of oddballs and weirdos.
We'll be celebrating the milestone with a screening of the beloved cult film at the Bing Crosby Theater on Wed, April 25
. And because we're not into that whole brevity thing, we'll also be supplying beer from Iron Goat Brewing and free popcorn from our sponsors at Horizon Credit Union. You'll have to supply your own sarsaparilla; save the White Russians for after the show.
The brews start flowing at 6 pm and the program itself begins at 7 pm. The movie is rated R, and children under 17 will not be admitted without an adult guardian.
But that's not all. Come to the show dressed as your favorite Lebowski character
and you could win prizes. Ratty bathrobes, bowling shoes, cowboy hats and viking helmets are all encouraged (Saddam Hussein costumes? Not so much.) Our own gang of nihilists will be judging which likenesses are the most striking — it'll be, like, just our opinions, man
— and the winners will be featured in a commemorative Lebowski
-themed photo that'll also be printed in the paper. It'll really tie your room together.
