Pillow Cinema Al Fresco For Two: Donnie Darko
A unique type of scare
Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the rooftop of SNAP Studios, overlooking Shoreditch Park, into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags. This is perhaps the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. For this one, get ready for Richard Kelly's bizarre yet memorable supernatural drama that lifted Jake Gyllenhaal's career. A troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a large bunny rabbit that manipulates him to commit a series of crimes, after narrowly escaping a bizarre accident. "But how stimulating to see a film that really can be scary and believes in its own scariness, scariness with a point - not like the preprogrammed generic film-school pseudo-shockers we've been offered recently."– The Guardian "It has more ambition in any single scene than most big, stupid, special-effects-laden Hollywood SF extravaganzas manage for an entire film."– Locusmag.com Certificate 15. Runtime: 1 hour 48 minutes. Each ticket provides entry for two. Valid ID required. You can book a pillow for two or indulge in one all to yourself. It’s BYO so make sure you bring along snacks and refreshments to enjoy al fresco style.
