The Big Lebowski

Friday, March 20 - Saturday, March 21, 2020

THE BIG LEBOWSKI was originally scheduled to screen Fri Mar 20 – Sat Mar 21 in the Winter 2020 season of “Waverly Midnights: Late-Night Favorites,” but the screenings have been canceled due to the unexpected closure of the theater on March 14, in order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

All Jeff ‘the Dude’ Lebowski wants to do is go bowling, but when he’s mistaken for LA millionaire big Lebowski and a pair of thugs pee on his rug — “it really tied the room together!” — he’s forced to take action, and so the laziest man in Los Angeles County takes on nihilists, ferrets, and empire tycoons, guzzling White Russians all the while. The Coen Brother’s unstoppable cult classic has inspired countless bowling parties and drinking games, and even its own festival, and we’re happy to bring it back to the IFC Center.

Screening as part of our Winter 2020 series, “Waverly Midnights: Late-Night Favorites.”
