Being John Malkovich + Big Lebowski, The

DOUBLE BILL: Polish your bowling ball, pour yourself a white russian, practice your puppetry and prepare to get off at the seventh and a half floor. Two of the most original indie comedies of the 1990s are paired up for a trippy comedy double feature: Spike Jonze’s puppetry portal and the Coen Brothers’ stoner spectacular.

Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) is a struggling street puppeteer. In order to make some money, Craig takes a job as a filing clerk. One day he accidentally discovers a door… a portal into the mind of John Malkovich (played by John Malkovich)! For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip - HE is John Malkovich! Then he's dumped out onto the New Jersey turnpike! With his beautiful office mate Maxine (Catherine Keener) and his pet-obsessed wife (Cameron Diaz), they hatch a plan to let others into John's brain for just $200 a trip.

From the Academy Award®-winning Coen Brothers comes THE BIG LEBOWSKI - the hilariously quirky comedy-thriller about bowling, avant-garde art, nihilistic Austrians, and a guy named… The Dude. Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski doesn't want any drama in his life… heck, he can't even be bothered with a job. But, in a case of mistaken identity, a couple of thugs break into his place and steal his rug (you gotta understand, that rug really tied the room together). Now, The Dude must embark on a quest with his crazy friends to make things right and get that rug back! Starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, John Goodman, John Turturro and Steve Buscemi, THE BIG LEBOWSKI has become a cultural phenomenon.
