This Open Air Cinema presentation of The Big Lebowski is part of Tucson Modernism Week 2020, virtually celebrating Tucson’s mid-century architecture and design! Marvel at the mucho modernist L.A. locations used in The Big Lebowski, including the famous Hollywood Star Lanes bowling alley, Johnie’s Coffee Shop, the swank 1963 Sheats-Goldstein residence (used as adult filmmaker Jackie Treehorn’s home in the film), and more. It all really ties the movie together!
This Open Air Cinema presentation will take place outdoors at The Loft Cinema, and seating is limited (sanitized chairs will be provided, or you can supply your own). The Loft Cinema adheres to all current health and safety guidelines. Social Distancing will be strictly enforced, and masks must be worn at all times (except when eating/drinking). Let’s have a fun, safe and unforgettable night at the movies, Open Air style!
“One of the funniest, coolest, most absurd cult films ever made, and one of the best from the dynamic duo, Joel and Ethan Coen.” – R.L. Shaffer, IGN
How the heck can we explain The Big Lebowski, man? Because if you have to ask what it is, someone may just tell you to “Shut the f**k up, Donny!” Lebowski is not only one of the biggest and best cult movies of all-time, this hilarious Coen Brothers classic is also a completely insane comedy of bowling, mistaken identities, urine-soaked rugs, severed toes, angry ferrets, naked performance art, porn-obsessed nihilists, a purple jumpsuit-wearing pervert named Jesus, numerous White Russians, a smattering of hallucinatory musical dream sequences … and oh yeah, Jeff Bridges as a supremely mellow Los Angeleno called “The Dude” – or “El Duderino,” if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. (Dir. by Joel Coen, 1998, USA, 117 mins., Rated R)
