  • De Jesus is excited about not being edited out of his movie this time
​Last week Frontyard Features rolled a gutterball by screening (without warning) a highly censored version of The Big Lebowski at downtown's Old Post Office Plaza. 

Even Martin Casas, the classy owner of the upstart outdoor cinema company agreed. He explained in the comments section of our post last week that licensing issues and concerns about blaring the word fuck 247 times on the streets of downtown caused the mix-up.

This morning, Casas sent us this e-mail seeking out offers for a new location to screen the entire fucking movie:


I'm Martin Casas, owner of Frontyard Features.

Read your article, I feel your pain. 

We'll make it up to fans by paying for the license to show the Big Lebowski UNEDITED. 

All we need is a location and a new date, and we'll get a UNEDITED version of the film to screen. We'll even bring out the Wii to play as well. 

If you can update your article with that offer, hopefully we can get someone to find a cool location for the movie and we can get rolling.

If any of you dudes abide (and have a large open field or parking lot available in a central location), give Martin a call or send him an e-mail at
