3) Movie Screening at Watauga County Public Library Dec. 18

Third Thursday, the Watauga County Public Library’s movie discussion group, invites you to join them for a viewing of The Big Lebowski on Dec. 18 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The Coen brothers’ 1998 film The Big Lebowski is a Raymond Chandler-esque comedy and crime caper that pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses and White Russians. When Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, an unemployed slacker and avid bowler, gets mistaken for a millionaire by the same name, Dude’s rug gets destroyed and Lebowski’s wife, Bunny, gets kidnapped by a group of nihilists. Will Dude and his friends be able to save Bunny? More importantly, can Dude get a replacement rug? That rug really tied the room together. The film has an MPAA rating of R.
