The Big Lebowski Turns 21!
Our 9th annual DudeStock this year celebrates the 21st Anniversary of the greatest film ever made! At DudeStock we raise our Caucasians to all things related to the 1998 cult favorite. Fans of the film (aka "Achievers") come from far and wide to drink White Russians while partaking in the film, listening to Creedence and partying with an array of Dudes, Walters, Maudes and (hopefully) Jesus' to one of cinemas greatest achievements. Prizes will be awarded for best costume in several categories, including a chance to win a comfy couch seat in the theatre for the show! Arrive early (doors at 7pm, film at 8pm) for Big Screen Bowling.
The plot of this Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians. Jeff `The Dude' Lebowski is mistaken for Jeffrey Lebowski, who is The Big Lebowski. Which explains why he's roughed up and has his precious rug peed on. In search of recompense, The Dude tracks down his namesake, who offers him a job. His wife has been kidnapped and he needs a reliable bagman. Aided and hindered by his pals Walter Sobchak, a Vietnam vet, and Donny, master of stupidity. The soundtrack includes Bob Dylan, Yma Sumac, Moondog, Captain Beefheart, The Sons of the Pioneers and Creedence!
