Donnie Darko: 15th Anniversary
Richard Kelly’s sci-fi cult hit celebrates its 15th anniversary with a new restoration!
This screening is part of: LATE NIGHTS AT THE ART
Visions, time travel, the end of the world, and a demonic rabbit: Richard Kelly’s stunning directorial debut has all of these elements and so much more. Equal parts coming-of-age story, horror, and sci-fi, this cult classic for a new generation leads audiences on a mind-bending adventure into metaphysics and selfhood. Donnie Darko is a paranoid schizophrenic teenager living with his family in suburban Maryland. He is plagued with delusions of a demonic bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes and warns him that the world will end in 28 days. Special introduction by News-Gazette film critic Chuck Koplinski before Friday’s 10pm show. (2001, Richard Kelly, US, 113 min, R, restored DCP)
