If you asked me who I’d like to see team up with the Coen Brothers, I wouldn’t nominate Mark Zuckerberg, but that seems to be the case now that The Big Lebowski is available to rent through Facebook.
Starting this week, the underachievers of the World can cash in 30 Facebook Credits and be invited into the new Social Theater. 30 Facebook Credits equals out to $3, which is the price of a new rental, but what this new Social Theater offers that rental does not is a new way to interact with all of your Facebook friends during the film. Viewers can “like” scenes , share their comments, and post favorite quotes, all in real-time, much like BD-Live.
You can also invite up to 5 Facebook friends to watch the movie, and they’ll each save 10 Credits (one dollar) off the rental. So now you’ll be able to host your own showing without having to put on pants! Score.
The rental is good for 48 hours but you must have Adobe Flash Player. All major browsers supported. Click the image below for more info.
