Donnie Darko

The ultimate cult film of the noughties for the first time on the big screen in Greece and in the 4K
quality it deserves. Dark. Darker. Darko.

Donnie Darko

Time travel, the most beautiful words in the English language and the hotness of Christina Applegate… This is just a glimpse of the film’s pop culture references and attitude. A misunderstood film, a true revolution in cinematic time and space.

Its prominence as a cult phenomenon via the video-club shelves has brought on a fascinating debate that goes on until now in blogs, comics, alternative cuts – even in a vulgar sequel. Against all pseudoscience, for some of us time stopped on October 30, 1988, at dawn. “Donnie Darko” is just like that nostalgic ‘80s song that you seem to like more than you thought (and now you can’t stop listening to).
