Kalamazoo State Theatre  

From closely monitoring reports on COVID-19, we have learned that our regional numbers have increased to new highs. While we have excellent practices in place, the potential of contributing to the spread is too risky at this time. The Kalamazoo State Theatre and our presenting sponsor, Herbology, feel very strongly that we have a corporate social responsibility to not host in-person programming at this time.
While we’ll miss it this time around, we know this is the right decision, but there is some good news! Herbology Presents the Big Lebowski will now be shown at the Kalamazoo State Theatre on Saturday, May 15, 2021.
Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date.


Herbology Presents: The Big Lebowski (R) : Doors- 6:15PM | Show: 8:00PM

The Kalamazoo State Theatre is excited to announce Herbology Presents: The Big Lebowski Saturday,May 15th.  Get your “Dude” on and watch this cult classic movie the way it was meant to be seen…on the big screen at the Kalamazoo State Theatre!

The Big Lebowski (1998): Jeff `The Dude’ Leboswki is mistaken for Jeffrey Lebowski, who is The Big Lebowski. Which explains why he’s roughed up and has his precious rug peed on.

Aided and hindered by his pals Walter Sobchak, a Vietnam vet, and Donny, master of stupidity.
