“The Big Lebowski.” It’s a stoner comedy, a western, a crime drama and above all else: a cult film. The epic tale of Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski and his bowling buddies has been a fan favorite since its release in 1998, and Coolidge Corner Theatre, the Brookline movie house, has screened it annually since 2003. On the tenth anniversary of Lebowski Night at Coolidge, fans lined down and around the corner, eager to get inside and grab a seat. Some wore costumes; some were veterans of the Lebowski scene, and others were seeing the film for the very first time. As seats were claimed and beverages were purchased, the theater was abuzz and spirits were high. But when the house lights went down, all eyes were on the silver screen.
