Voting has closed on the Indie Memphis Late-Night Movie Contest, and the winner is The Big Lebowski. The Coen brothers' cult comedy will be shown on the big screen at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park on Friday, October 9th, as part of an Indie Memphis program that will start with Elvis Presley's 1968 "comeback" television special and include the Memphis Music at SXSW documentary.

Among the five candidates that were open to public voting, Lebowski won big, garnering 38 percent of the vote. The runners-up were Shaun of the Dead (22 percent), Dazed and Confused (17 percent), and Monty Python & the Holy Grail (17 percent). Caddyshack trailed with 6 percent of the vote.

The Big Lebowski will screen at roughly 10 p.m., after the music docs. Admission is free. In the event of inclement weather, the screening will be rescheduled for Friday, October 16th. See IndieMemphis.com for more info.
