Doris Duke Theatre, located inside Honolulu Museum of Art, would like to remind you that you’re old.
Well, not really, but they are showing two cult classics — Reservoir Dogs and Donnie Darko — in celebration of their 25th and 15th anniversaries, respectively.
Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino’s directorial debut, centers on six criminals who are hired for a big-time heist. But it turns out one of them is actually an undercover cop. Things quickly go awry — and get very, very bloody. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. today (March 24); suits and skinny ties are encouraged.
Donnie Darko centers on teenager Donnie, who is told by a giant, rather terrifying rabbit that the world is going to end soon. Returning home the next morning, he finds that a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom. He tries to find out the mystery of why he survived while being tormented by that giant rabbit. Donnie Darko screens at 9:30 p.m. March 31.
TICKETS FOR BOTH FILMS COST $10; $8 FOR MUSEUM MEMBERS. FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT HONOLULUMUSEUM.ORG.
