Rug Runners

Followers of The Dude and his abiding, "whatever man" ways no longer need to cross state lines to celebrate The Coen Brothers’ quotable comedy The Big Lebowski. Granted, we aren’t getting our own offshoot of Lebowski Fest. But a screening during Cult Thursdays at FilmBar is a step in the right direction.

Join ever-calm Walter, out-of-his-element Donny, and the Zenmaster Lebowski as their adventure in unchecked aggression finds them battling nihilists, taking in high art, and searching for a kidnapped skank – all in the name of a ruined carpet.

Shine up your bowling shoes and down a few White Russians, duderinos. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m.
