Don your bowling shirt and pony up for White Russians at a screening of the 1998 Coen Brothers’ classic The Big Lebowski. Jeff Bridges stars as L.A. slacker “The Dude,” who seeks recompense from his millionaire name-twin when angry thugs mistake his identity and urinate on his rug. The laid back bowling enthusiast becomes enmeshed in a scheme involving trophy wives, porn tycoons, angry nihilists, and a suitcase of cash (or is it underwear?). The celebrity-studded flick is a must-see dose of dark comedy—because you really haven’t started 2014 until you’ve watched John Turturro lick a bowling ball.

Saturday 2/1. $6, 4 and 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., 979-1333.
