Come celebrate The Frida Cinema’s 10th birthday with Richard Kelly’s heady classic Donnie Darko!

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Donnie, a somewhat unhappy young man who finds himself at ideological odds with his family, and even most of the town he calls home.

What is the month of Valentine’s without the eternal romance of David Lean’s Brief Encounter?

Returning home from a shopping trip to a nearby town, bored suburban housewife Laura Jesson (Celia Johnson) is thrown by happenstance into an acquaintance with virtuous doctor Alec Harvey (Trevor Howard).
