DOWNERS GROVE, IL — In continuance of Classic Cinemas' special “Midnight at the Tivoli” series, the Coen brother’s 1998 cult-classic comedy “The Big Lebowski” (rated-R) moseys on back to the big screen for a showing on August 31st, at the historic Tivoli Theatre, located at 5021 Highland Avenue in downtown Downers Grove. The film is scheduled to begin at midnight, with admission set at only $5.00! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see ‘The Dude' presented on Tivoli’s newly enhanced 4K digital projection and sound system.

And, before the movie, stop by the Tivoli Bowl, located just around the corner from the Tivoli Theatre, for $2 bowling and “Dude Drink Specials” including White Russians! The Tivoli Bowl has 12 lanes with state-of the-art computerized scoring and a newly remodeled lounge area. “We have always wanted to bring fans of "The Big Lebowski' to the Tivoli Theatre and Bowl for one convenient evening of bowling and then watching ‘The Dude' on the big screen,” says Marketing Manager Mark Mazrimas.

In “The Big Lebowski,” Jeff Bridges stars as Jeff Lebowski, an unemployed Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler, who is referred to as ‘The Dude.‘ After being mistaken for a wealthy businessman by a group of thugs, Lebowski sets out to redeem his unjustly ruined rug. However, he quickly finds himself unwillingly caught up in a scandal revolving diligent Nihilists, a kidnapped girl, and an estranged post-modern artist. This witty comedy offers a venture into the absurdist minds of the Coen brothers, and promises the ride to be more than enjoyable.
