This is it, the one event you look forward to for over a year, The Fifth Reel's 4th annual screening of THE BIG LEBOWSKI.
A rug, bowling, nihilists. If you don't already know the plot, that's really all you need to know. These events have become larger and larger each year, so grab a housecoat and come join in on the fun.
Before the movie the lovely dudes in FLOWSHINE will be playing a special Lebowski themed set for y'all
“[Flowshine aims] to create an eclectic mix of songs that incorporate vibrant arrangements with self-described “dad rock.” The resulting music is warm and punchy; in the live arena, their rotating line-up of drummers and backup vocalists adds even more range.”
Hosting for the evening will be the always hilarious, never a dull moment, THE KINKONAUTS!
Prepare to be dazzled by their hilarious antics and mind bending challenges. Past highlights include human-proton-pack ghost hunting, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation contests, and life sized rock em sock em robots. One can only guess what they have up their sleeve this time.
As with all Fifth Reel events we will also have beer for sale in the lobby which you'll be able to enjoy in the theatre while you watch the movie!!!! We're happy to announce the theme drink for the evening will be The Dude's cherished WHITE RUSSIANS.
This event has sold out two years in a row so we highly encourage people to buy their tickets online ahead of time to ensure a seat. We'll have an extremely limited amount of tickets available at the door the night of the event but these will go fast.
$9 Early Bird tickets if you order before Jan 1st!
$10 for members of The Fifth Reel/Calgary Underground Film Festival/UofC Film Society
$15 for non-members (Free Fifth Reel memberships will be available inside the theatre for those who want to become members for next time)
FIFTH REEL HOUSE RULES:
Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quote a long. are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...
