Donnie Darko

Come one, come all, to a free outdoor horror movie festival. Spooky Popcorn is held annually on Constitution Plaza on Saturday evenings from August through September.
Stock up on your favorite snacks, pack some chairs, and look for us behind the clocktower. One lucky movie goer will receive a gift card to Gentle Bull Shop each night. We will also be giving away a pair of tickets to Hartford Stage’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by The Hartford.

About the movie:

During the presidential election of 1988, a teenager named Donnie Darko 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?
