This Week, It's All About 'The Dude' Lebowski
Monday, August 15, 2011
On Tuesday, Universal Studios releases "The Big Lebowski" on blu-ray. The limited edition disc, which comes with a 28-page book and an interview with the actor who played The Dude, Jeff Bridges, coincides with the 10th annual Lebowski Fest and the launch of Bridges' new self-titled album on Blue Note.
There will be a screening of the 1998 Coen Brothers classic on blu-ray at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday night. The movie will be preceded by an interview with the person The Dude was based on, Jeff Dowd, and a Q&A with Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, John Turturro and T Bone Burnett.
In addition to Tuesday's celebration, there will also be a bowling party to celebrate the new release at 300 New York at Chelsea Piers on Monday. Tickets to the party, which will include costumes, trivia and the sale of blu-ray discs at midnight, are $30.
