The Daily Pulse:

Movies at the Bijou

New movie series at the Bijou Theatre starts on March 20 and 21 with 8 p.m. screenings of The Big Lebowski (for my money, the best movie the Cohen Brothers have made), followed a week later, on March 27 and 28, with a David Lynch double feature: Blue Velvet and Eraserhead.

If the series sticks, it might be the first time movies have played regularly at the Bijou since the 1970s, when it was a porno cinema.

Interesting, and about time. Downtown has really needed a retro film program for a long time. I hope they really market it.
I'd have to agree with you on THE BIG LEBOWSKI, but there are some close seconds. For a first film, BLOOD SIMPLE remains up there. And as far as the "number of quotes in normal conversation" factor, FARGO would have to take it.
BLUE VELVET is the film that actually convinced me to go back to film school.
