Lebowski Fever

Central Florida has gone crazy for THE BIG LEBOWSKI. Talk about "Held Over By Popular Demand!!" The Coen Brothers' classic 1998 comedy about bowling, mistaken identity, kidnapping, and (of course), The Dude, was originally booked to play the Tuesday night late show at 9:30 as part of our monthly Cult Classics series, complete with a costume contest to come dressed as your favorite character. When that sold out in advance with still a couple of weeks to go, we figured what the hell? Let's see if we can add a Saturday midnight encore showing later the same week (that's tomorrow, March 1, at 12 midnite by the way). Guess what? That sold out as well (standbys only please) with a few days to spare, so now we've added a Sunday matinee (3/2) at 12:30 PM.

That's right! You Dude lovers have one more chance to hang out with Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, John Turturro, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Thewlis, and Sam Elliott (how's that for an amazing cast?!) in one of the great cult films of our era. Thanks to Paul Ginsburg at Universal for being so cool about letting Enzian hang on to the print. Maybe there's room for a repertory cinema in Orlando after all...
