"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Groovie

Last Friday night I went to the Little Lebowski shop on Thompson Street. It is run by a friendly guy named Rob Preston, a movie nut who previously worshipped cult classics like “Time Bandits” and “Withnail and I.”

The shop is filled with Lebowski t-shirts and toys.

It’s worth the trek if you dig all things Lebowski.

There’s Roy, pictured with Bridges, who paid a visit not too long ago:

Watch the full episode. See more American Masters.

i'm gonna go this weekend. Alex is it true the guy wears a bathrobe in the store?

Yeah he does. Super friendly guy. I know that the line producer also visited the store. He asked if I thought Joel and Ethan would ever come down. He'd heard they wouldn't. And I said, yeah, from what I know of them, they probably won't.

There were at least two different sets of kids who came in while I was there who'd just discovered the place and were bugging out like, "I can't believe this place exists! I can't wait to come back."
