Eat|See|Hear presents Donnie Darko (2001)Santa Monica High School
601 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA
Eat|See|Hear is an annual mobile film festival, but the summertime screenings are also a multi-sensory merging of food and music, as its title implies. In other words, Eat|See|Hear doesn't just project cinematic gems onto a jumbo outdoor movie screen — it also serves up instant picnics courtesy of LA's own famed food trucks. This peripatetic entertainment series also comes with live music, featuring both established and up-and-coming indie acts. This week, Eat|See|Hear presents "Donnie Darko," a 2001 creepy cult favorite starring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, and Jena Malone. The film's non-linear narrative follows the paranormal adventures of its tortured teen hero (Gyllenhall), whose own reality is threatened by a series of so-called "daylight hallucinations."
