This could be your chance, to own a piece of history, I know some bowlers who love to have a part of The Cove, built back in 1958 and opened in 1960, all over the internet it is reported that to have been the inspiration for the bowling alley that served as the main setting for “The Big Lebowski,” the 1998 film.

If you need a reminder of who else was in the bowling scenes in The Big Lebowski, the main one features El Duderino The dude himself Jeff Bridges, Walter played by John Goodman, and Donny one of the favs Steve Buscemi had that part, then there was purple-clad bowling god Jesus Quintana played by the ever wonderful John Turturro, Turturro’s few minutes of screen-time help make The Big Lebowski one of the best comedy movies ever.
Filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen reportedly used to go to the Cove when they were attending Bard College at Simon’s Rock in the 1970s. People say that inspired them to use a Bowling alley with the same feel as the cove.
