Movie screening plus music, food trucks, hilarity!

"Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!"

White Russians. Food trucks. Nail polish. What do these things have in common?

They’re all a part of the “The Dude Abides” Movie Party, starting at 6:30 pm, when Baguettaboutit, Mama Dukes, American Meltdown, and LoYo food trucks roll in. Wear a costume and take your picture in the Lebowski Lounge, hosted by the NCMA Artist Link Team, or leave a message on the Donny tribute wall.

Bring chairs or blankets so you can kick back and what have you when the movie starts at 8:30.

Jeff Bridges stars as the Dude, the laziest man in L.A. County, a white-Russian-swilling slacker who lives to bowl, forced into film-noirish action over a mistaken identity. The quotable dialogue and memorably bent characters rock this legendary film. The Dude abides.

“It put a smile on my face that never left for 117 minutes” (Chicago Tribune).

Watch the trailer.

Thanks to The Alley, Raleigh, for support of The Dude Abides party!
