Friday Flicks at The Varsity: “The Big Lebowski”
September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $7
The bar will be serving White Russians! Come in costume for a chance to win a prize.
The plot of this Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen) pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot and gallons of White Russians (made with fresh cream, please). In 1991, unemployed ’60s refugee Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) grooves into his laid-back Los Angeles lifestyle. He enjoys hanging with his bowling buddies, pompous security-store owner Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) and mild-mannered ex-surfer Donny (Steve Buscemi). However, the Dude’s life takes an alternate route the afternoon two goons break into his threadbare Venice, California, bungalow, rough him up, and urinate on his living room rug. However, the goons grabbed the wrong Jeff Lebowski. (1998) Rated for for pervasive strong language, drug content, sexuality and brief violence.
The movie will begin at 7. Tickets are $7 or $5 for students with ID. They are available in advance at www.thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com. They are not available in advance at the venue, but can be purchased the night of the show when doors open. Doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6:30.
