“The Big Lebowski” is making a comeback to theaters for its 25th anniversary. Fans of the cult classic film will have the opportunity to catch it on the big screen. The film- written, produced, and directed by The Coen Brothers (Joel and Ethan)- is returning to theaters this April for two nights thanks to Fathom Events.
The film follows the misadventures of Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski, played by Jeff Bridges, after someone mistakes him for a millionaire who shares the same name. Believing ‘The Dude’ to be the Lebowski in question, the local loan-shark has come to collect his debt.
John Goodman plays The Dude’s friend, Walter Sobchak, and the movie also features appearances by Sam Elliott, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and John Turturro. The character of Jesus Quintana, played by Turturro, even got his own spinoff in 2020, titled “The Jesus Rolls.”
Despite Bridges expressing interest in making a sequel to the film, the Coen Brothers have denied any plans for a continuation of the story. Fans have still been able to see the Dude make appearances. Most recently, in a tribute to Goodman, and a Stella Artois Super Bowl ad.
Fans of “The Big Lebowski” can purchase tickets for the limited theatrical release (April 16th and April 20th) via Fathom Events. So, get ready to don your bowling shoes and grab a White Russian, and head to the theater for a nostalgic trip back to 1998.
