‘Dude Night’ ties all things ‘Big Le­bowski’ to­gether

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - ART - By Phillip Valys

The Dude would def­i­nitely abide an ex­hi­bi­tion of “Big Le­bowski”themed art at Old School Square in Del­ray Beach. He digs his own vibe, and the like­ness of the Dude — or El Dud­erino, if you’re fancy — will adorn ev­ery bowl­ing pin, Cowichan sweater and paint­ing in­side the square’s Crest The­atre.

The oc­ca­sion is “Dude Night With the Big Le­bowski,” an evening of fans cel­e­brat­ing the White Rus­sian-sip­ping an­ti­hero that will fea­ture themed works and a bowl­ing-pin art auc­tion. The Coen broth­ers’ hy­per­in­tel­lec­tual 1998 bowl­ing-com­edy who­dunit is a clas­sic, its vault of quotable di­a­logue (“the rug re­ally tied the room to­gether, did it not?”) in­spir­ing na­tional con­ven­tions and on­line lis­ti­cles de­voted to the cult of a di­sheveled stoner with cool glasses.

The bowl­ing-pin auc­tion will take place at 8 p.m. and will be fol­lowed by a trivia and cos­tume con­test in the the­ater and a 9 p.m. screen­ing of the film. Ad­mis­sion in­cludes a drink ticket (they’re serv­ing White Rus­sians) and a snack. When: Where: Cost: Con­tact:

“Dude Night” is also part of Old School Square’s sum­mer­long cult­film series, which will run through Sept. 15 with 8 p.m. Fri­day screen­ings of “Wet Hot Amer­i­can Sum- mer” (Aug. 25), “The Blues Broth­ers” (Sept. 1), Frat Night with “An­i­mal House” and “Old School” (Sept. 8) and “Air­plane!” (Sept. 15).
