Think Big Movie Marathon

When: Mon., May 4, 6:30 p.m.-1 a.m. 2015

Part of the national fundraising initiative Give Local America, the Big Give S.A. unites 877 organizations for a 24-hour period designed to “bring nonprofits and donors together, expand the idea of online giving, connect people to the causes that move them the most and, of course, make giving fun.” As an added incentive to show your favorite nonprofit some love with a donation of $10 or more, each participating organization is eligible for matching funds and a variety of prizes totaling $650,000. To celebrate the occasion and encourage generosity, Texas Public Radio and Slab Cinema are teaming up for the aptly titled “Think Big Movie Marathon.” Promising a funny, strange walk down memory lane (not to mention encounters with the likes of Zoltar, The Dude and Large Marge), the free triple feature kicks off with Penny Marshall’s nostalgic fantasy Big (7:30 p.m.), continues with Tim Burton’s cult classic Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (9:35 p.m.) and wraps up with the Coen brothers’ surreal stoner comedy The Big Lebowski (11:10 p.m.).
