Come and chill out with The Dude in a ‘Cults for Cats’ screening at The Pad Nightclub of…
The Big Lebowski
In a special fringe screening for Bedford Film Festival, Chloe Tilford and The Pad Nightclub present this special screening in aid of Cats Protection.
When “The Dude” Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, two thugs urinate on his rug to coerce him into paying a debt he knows nothing about. While attempting to gain recompense for the ruined rug from his wealthy counterpart, he accepts a one-time job with high pay-off. He enlists the help of his bowling buddy, Walter, a gun-toting Jewish-convert with anger issues. Deception leads to more trouble, and it soon seems that everyone from porn empire tycoons to nihilists want something from The Dude. Written by J. Lake

All profit from these screenings is in aid of Cats Protection via sponsorship of Chloe’s Zambezi River Challenge in October 2016.
She and her feline-loving compadres will spend three days canoeing up to 28km per day down the fourth-longest river in Africa, doing their best to avoid crocodiles, hippos & bull sharks, before arriving at the Lion ALERT project near Livingstone. Here they will work with the team to learn about lion behaviour and health conditions, along with performing snare sweeps and preparing raw meals. Temperatures will average 30 degrees and accommodation will be rudimentary: tents & makeshift toilets along the riverbank.
Since Chloe absolutely despises handling meat, camping, bad toilets, hot weather & exercise, it will be a huge challenge; she is hoping everyone will lend their support with a bit of cash towards her fundraising target of £4000.
