The Dude Abides at Penn State

Every once in a while, a movie comes along that redefines cinema as we know it. The Big Lebowski is not one of these films. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to hear that The State Theater would be showing it this Friday.

The film is being shown as a “welcome back” event for students. What other movie better captures the spirit of college than one about a jobless stoner and his bowling buddies getting caught up in a mob deal gone bad?

There will be two showings at 7:00 and 9:30 p.m., and tickets are only $5. I’m fairly certain most of you didn’t get a chance to see this classic in theaters back in 1998, so I recommend taking advantage of this unique opportunity.

Also, in the meantime, take a half hour and read Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, a Shakespearean take on the film. It’s better than an acid flashback.
