Take a Big Lebowski Tour

Getting Lost, Stories and Travel Info - Amanda - April 23, 2018

The Big Lebowski is one of the funniest and most creative movies ever to have been made in the 20th century. The film is jam-packed with sarcastic and somewhat cynical moments, and its characters make it even more interesting. Sure, the whole story is fascinating, but the way that Walter and The Dude, who doesn’t prefer being called by his surname, interact with each other is even funnier than the whole confusion that started everything.

If you’re a bit of a nostalgic and you’d like to go to the same places that show up during the movie or maybe you’d like to buy groceries from the same store The Dude did in the film, we’ve put together a list of spots you might want to check out in L.A. the next time you’re in town. You can create a Big Lebowski tour all on your own.

The Bowling Alley

The Hollywood Star Lanes is the place where most of the other events happen aside from those which usually occur at the Dude’s bungalow. Unfortunately, the alley was demolished back in 2002 and in its place now resides an elementary school. You can, however, take the best options in terms of bowling balls and alleys and check out the places nearby.

The wooden bridge

You know that moment when The Dude and Walter are supposed to throw a bag of money off a bridge to ensure that the ransom is paid and Bunny is returned safely? Well, that doesn’t happen exactly as planned, because Walter decides to throw a briefcase filled with his dirty laundry instead of the one with the money.
The wooden bridge where all of this occurs doesn’t exist in reality. However, it’s an actual bridge that connects the north of Simi Valley to the Santa Clara River, but it isn’t made out of wood. The material was added by the crew.

Larry Seller’s House

Larry Seller is an unfortunate kid that almost gets harassed by Walter because he doesn’t admit to having committed a crime he (of course) did not commit. To convince him to talk, Walter uses brute force and ends up going ballistic on a shiny Corvette. Unfortunately, the car did not belong to Larry. It was the property of his neighbor who had just acquired it. The house can be seen near the In-and-Out Burger on Camrose, and more specifically, on Stearns Drive.

The Nihilists’ Pancake House

On South Sepulveda Boulevard, you can still find Dinah’s Family Restaurant, which is a pancake place that opened back in 1959. That was the place where the nihilists used to gather and plan all of their future moves. The owners of the restaurant claim that about twenty million customers have been served since its opening in ‘59. Check it out, if you’re in the area. Apparently, the pancakes are really delicious.
