Event Pick: "Donnie Darko" the new Bijou Film Center
March 31-April 2
Written and directed by Midlothian’s Richard Kelly, the weirdo science fiction film, “Donnie Darko,” became an instant cult classic upon its release in 2001. Locals of a certain age may recognize familiar kid slang from their South Side youths. And now you can watch a luminous restoration at the new Bijou Film Center during a 15th anniversary run of the film. “Donnie Darko” runs March 31-April 2. Admission is $9 or $7 for members.
