Donnie Darko: Director's Cut (Throwback)

Halloween is coming up and Frank’s been waiting for his Halloween party for too long.  We’re bringing back one of our favorite productions -- this time bigger and better. Here's what happened last time:

Donnie Darko (Director’s Cut) became an instant cult classic as a sci-fi take on suburban America, and society's tendency to adapt to standard social norms against deeper, natural intuition.

As an immensely intelligent existentialist with the ability to see into the future, teenager, Donnie Darko, knows the world is about to end -- because his big evil rabbit friend Frank told him so.

Our special guests for the evening are Black Lodge and Modern Gypsies Productions.
