Event Details

$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre

Experience the great films of Hollywood’s Golden Era in one of America’s finest Art Deco movie palaces.

With over 3,000 seats and a meticulously-restored interior, the Paramount offers a true “Movie Palace” experience straight out of the 1930s – with period newsreels, cartoons, previews, live music from the Mighty Wurlitzer organ and the audience participation spinning wheel game of “Dec-O-Win.”

One of the most subversively hilarious films of the late 20th century, this Coen Brothers production is a comedy of errors, a case of mistaken identity and a riot from start to finish. Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), an infinitely loveable aging Los Angeles hipster, is plunged into a horrendous set of ever-escalating circumstances, testing his laid-back calm at every turn. Allowing himself to be guided by his conspiracy theorizing Vietnam veteran bowling partner, Walter Sobchak (John Goodman), “The Dude” (aka the “Little Lebowski”) seeks restitution for a soiled rug from another Jeffrey Lebowski (aka the “Big Lebowski”), a reclusive millionaire who enlists “The Dude” in solving the kidnapping of his errant wife. Absolute bedlam and chaos ensue. This is one of those rare classic films that demand repeated viewings. No matter how many times you may have seen it before, you’ll still be catching dramatic ironies, character arcs, subtle quirks, and ingenious wordplay that you missed previously.
