Donnie Darko in Lakewood 

When: Sat., Oct. 22 2011
If you've seen one group of teens get hacked up by a lunatic, you've pretty much seen them all. But tonight, Lakewood Public Library is screening a fine alternative: the smart, surreal, and decidedly creepy Donnie Darko, written and directed by Richard Kelly. Released in 2001, the indie film stars a young Jake Gyllenhaal. Figuring prominently in the plot: death, redemption, time travel, and a demonic bunny named Frank. While Darko never achieved financial success, it intrigued critics and went on to develop a cult following. It's easy to see why: It was a breath of fresh air ten years ago, and it remains that way today. The screening starts at 6 p.m. in the library's Main Auditorium. It's free — but rated R, so don't bring the kids. — Stafford 15425 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-226-8275; lkwdpl.org.
