TT Cinema: Donnie Darko w/ The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey
To coincide with London Cocktail Week 2019, we’re teaming up with the good people at The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey to put on a screening of one of the quintessential cult-classics – Donnie Darko.
Also featuring a rather iconic tall-eared figure, the film revolves around a troubled American teenager, Donnie Darko, (Jake Gyllenhaal) who resides in the small town of Middlesex, Virginia.
In the lead up to the 1988 presidential elections, Donnie sleepwalks out of his house one night and sees a giant, demonic-looking rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world will end in 28 days. When Donnie returns home, he finds that a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom.
Is Donnie living in a parallel universe, is he suffering from mental illness – or will the world really end?
A heady blend of science fiction, spirituality, and teen angst, Donnie Darko has gone on to amass a loyal cult following in the 17 years since its initial release. Unusually for a cult film, it’s also proven to be a hit amongst the critical community, too, as time has elapsed.
And since no TT Cinema screening would be complete without some liquid accompaniments, especially during the week of the cocktail, our expert bar team will be mixing up the complimentary welcome cocktails featuring The Dead Rabbit’s good stuff at its base to sip on while you watch.
Come and revel in the madness with us.
Tickets are available at £15 a head, or £20 for a pair when you use the code ‘bunny’ at checkout. Complimentary cocktail and free snacks included as standard.
