Original Release Version!

Just a story about a boy and his bunny (well, his creepy man-sized bunny named Frank who has predicted the exact date for the end of the world). One of the first cult classics of the 21st century, Richard Kelly’s DONNIE DARKO premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival but, despite an amazing amount of buzz, failed to find a major theatrical release. In January 2002, The Brattle was one of only a handful of US cinemas to run the film.

Please Note: All in-person screenings at the Brattle now require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test (within 72-hours).
