The sleeper hit of 2001, the sci-fi film Donnie Darko, is being re-released in theaters in L.A. and N.Y. at the end of March.

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Donnie, a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.

The film co-stars Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Noah Wyle, and late great Patrick Swayze.

Director Richard Kelly has brought back the film in a 4K restoration along with both a theatrical cut and a longer director’s cut. The theatrical cut runs 113 minutes and the director’s cut runs at 134 minutes.

The film will premiere on March 31 at these theaters:

The Cinefamily
611 N Fairfax Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Metrograph
7 Ludlow St
New York, NY 10002
These two join weeklong runs in Pittsburgh, Phoenix and San Francisco followed by runs in El Paso and Detroit on April 7. Special screenings will include Jacksonville, Austin, Dallas, Honolulu, Lubbock, Baton Rouge, Sioux Falls, Oklahoma City, Tucson, Durham and Stamford throughout March and April.
So check your local theaters in these areas for the re-release of Donnie Darko from Arrow Films.
