Next up in our new late screenings at the Lexi – the Lexi's Midnight Runners - a monthly cult movie screening for the night owls of NW10.  We know 90% of our audience arrive on foot, but how many of you live close enough to turn up in your pyjamas?  This is a bit of an experiment for us, so if you like the idea, come along and we’ll keep this going!  Tickets £7 / £5 members.

Donnie is a troubled high school student, in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and haunted by Frank. Frank is a six foot tall rabbit who tells him the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds…  Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined sci-fi, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia, director Richard Kelly set the high-water mark with this debut feature, bathed in a weird pathos and set to kickstart the career of a puppy-eyed Jake Gyllenhaal.  Arguably, this become the first cult classic of the new millennium.
