In anticipation of the event, let's take a look at what went on behind-the-scenes with a snazzy slideshow made up of on the set stills, storyboards drawn by J. Todd Anderson, and photos taken by Jeff Bridges, “The Dude” himself.

Directors/writers Joel and Ethan Coen can be seen in the slideshow setting up shots in the Dude's apartment, at the house of “Branded” writer Arthru Digby Sellers, and at the now-demolished Hollywood Star Lanes bowling alley on Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood.

Bridges' photos, which come from his 2006 book “Pictures By Jeff Bridges,” depict his fellow actors including the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Julianne Moore, getting into character before the Coen's cameras roll.

In one great grainy black and white shot, co-stars Steve Buscemi, can be seen shaking the hand of John Turturro while John Goodman smilingly looks on.

In another, which opens the slideshow, Bridges takes a selfie with Sam Elliot, who plays “The Stranger.”

Director of Photography, cinematographer Roger Deakins, can also be seen working close with the Coens at what looks like the Dude's abode, where he, of course, abides.

The Big Lebowski” shows at the Colony Theater at 7:30, Wednesday, June 18th. Admission is $5.00.
