The Whistler Public Library and Whistler Arts Council present the cult comedy classic "The Big Lebowski"!

Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski (who insists on being called "the Dude"), a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money -- resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.

Rated 14A.
