Track 29 is branching out to another aspect of entertainment, and they’re leading off with a strike. On Friday, the venue will screen “Kingpin” and “The Big Lebowski” in a test run offering an alternative movie experience. Tickets are $5 and the bar is open.

The idea came from Sunrise Projection, which is also providing the high-definition projection system. It’s a take on the “Brew N’ View” format that has already proven popular in other cities at venues such as the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, and Cinebarre in Asheville, N.C., where movies are screened in a more relaxed atmosphere—with alcohol.

According to owner Adam Kinsey, it’s an idea they’ve wanted to pursue for a while, and Kinsey said he felt like July  (traditionally a slow concert month) “would be a great time to test it out.”

Despite what the film choices seem to represent, this is not an attempt to determine which film reigns superior in the age-old debate about undoubtedly the two greatest comedic, semi-satirical bowling movies ever made.

“We all love ‘The Big Lebowski’ and we all agreed it should be our first movie,” Kinsey said. “We thought about doing another Jeff Bridges flick, but ultimately decided that ‘Kingpin’ was too good not to show. This is about having a good time with friends and watching some great movies.”

You can also count on a crowd that will be looking the part, as Kinsey confirmed a costume contest with tickets to an upcoming show included in the prize package.

With cheap tickets, a full bar and a double feature on the menu, this is the perfect opportunity to free that vintage bowling shirt. Track 29 abides.
