The Dude abides tonight in Tompkins Square Park; plus, 'The Big Lebowksi,' pizza

The Films in Tompkins series continues tonight with "The Big Lebowski," plus pre-movie music by Main Squeeze Orchestra. And! A Two Boots 25th Anniversary Event. Which means free pizza.

And the movie's plot, in case that you've never seen it... via Wikipedia:

The Big Lebowski is a 1998 comedy film written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Jeff Bridges stars as Jeff Lebowski, an unemployed Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler, who is referred to (and also refers to himself) as "The Dude". After a case of mistaken identity, The Dude is introduced to a millionaire also named Jeffrey Lebowski. When the millionaire Lebowski's trophy wife is later kidnapped, he commissions The Dude to deliver the ransom to secure her release. The plan goes awry when The Dude's friend Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) schemes to keep the full ransom.

Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Huddleston, Julianne Moore, Tara Reid, and John Turturro star in the film, which is narrated by a cowboy known only as "The Stranger," played by Sam Elliott.

Anyway, whatever you do, don't go over the line tonight...

Why is Grolsch a sponsor when they don't actually serve beer in the Park?
