Movie Under the Maltworks opens with The Big Lebowski
Once again the Victoria Film Festival is bringing back the hit outdoor film screening series “Movie Under the Maltworks”. The film series features three films which kicks off on May 26th with the 90’s cult classic The Big Lebowski at the Phillips Backyard.
It’s been 20 years since Jeff Bridges became a hero of the ages as a one-time idealist, devoted bowler and unwilling pseudo-private eye, Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski. Directed by the indie cinema legends the Coen brothers, this cult classic is arguably their most popular and universally loved film.
Rain or shine doors will open at 8 p.m. with the film beginning at 9 p.m. (light dependent). Prior to the film, the VFF wants to see your finest bathrobes and bowling skills in The Best Dude contest where great prizes will be up for grabs including Vic Theatre and Phillip’s gift packs.
Guests are invited to bring their own chairs, although there will be a limited amount available for rent. Tickets are currently available for $20 and include, entry, 1 beer (this is a 19+ event) and a potted surprise. Tickets can be purchased online, at the festival office (1215 Blanshard Street) or at Phillips Brewing and Malting (2010 Government Street).
