Brendan Breslin, an outgoing member of staff at the RBC, has personally selected the film for screening: “Everyone loves The Big Lebowski, right? A madcap story, some great dialogue, a cast with a whole host of talent, from John Goodman to Julianne Moore and Red Hot Chilli’s bassist Flea, and the soundtrack isn’t bad either. I was only 10 when it was first released so I’m looking forward to watching it on the big screen”. Thanks Brendan, we'll really miss you!
