QFT Late: Cult & Classic continues with a screening of The Big Lebowski, the Coen brothers' achingly funny quasi-detective story, this Friday June 30 at 9pm.

Jeff Bridges is The Dude, a forty-something stoner who lives only for bowling, White Russians and his rug. But when some unhappy gangsters barge into his home and soil said rug it kicks off a tale of mistaken identity, chopped-off toes and German nihilists that will have you in fits of laughter.
