‘The Big Lebowski’ 25th anniversary
“Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude, in Los Angeles.” Has it really been a quarter century since the Coen brothers introduced the world to Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, Walter Sobchak and Jesus Quintana? “The Big Lebowski,” which carved out a niche as a cult classic before eventually earning a place on the National Film Registry, celebrates its 25th anniversary at the American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre this week as part of the “AFI Silver After Dark” series. (If you don’t roll on Shabbos — or can’t make it to the other showings this week — a wider theatrical rerelease is scheduled for April.)
When: Friday and Saturday at 7:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.; Thursday at 7 p.m.
Where: AFI Silver Theatre, 8633 Colesville Rd., Silver Spring. afisilver.afi.com.
