January in Fifth Reel world means one thing and one thing only. THE BIG LEBOWSKI. The annual new year tradition returns for one night only on January 20!

A rug, bowling, nihilists. If you don't already know the plot, that's really all you need to know. These events have become larger and larger each year, so grab a housecoat and come join in on the fun.

The evening's preshow tunes will come courtesy of FOX WHO SLEPT THE DAY AWAY. “FWSTDA’s music is relaxing and melodic. Their colourful rock maintains charming vocal-harmonies under long-experimental stretches of interweaving guitars and jazzy drums creating a spacious and groovy atmosphere.” - Michael Grondin Beatroute Magazine
Hosting for the evening will be the always hilarious, never a dull moment, THE KINKONAUTS!

Prepare to be dazzled by their hilarious antics and mind bending challenges. Past highlights include human-proton-pack ghost hunting, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation contests, and life sized rock em sock em robots. One can only guess what they have up their sleeve this time.

As with all Fifth Reel events we will also have beer for sale in the lobby which you'll be able to enjoy in the theatre while you watch the movie!!!! We're happy to announce the theme drink for the evening will be The Dude's cherished WHITE RUSSIANS.

This event has sold out four years in a row so we highly encourage people to buy their tickets online ahead of time to ensure a seat. We'll have an extremely limited amount of tickets available at the door the night of the event and these will go fast.

Band plays at 10:00
Movie starts around 10:45
$9 Early Bird tickets if you order before January 6th!
$10 for members of The Fifth Reel/Calgary Underground Film Festival/UofC Film Society
$15 for non-members (Free Fifth Reel memberships will be available inside the theatre for those who want to become members for next time)


Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quote a long. are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...The Fifth Reel >
