Jack Off! Jack Nicolson Double Feature CHINATOWN + BATMAN

Jack Off! Jack Nicolson Double Feature CHINATOWN + BATMAN

7:00pm - Saturday, May 13, 2017

On Saturday, May 13 we're celebrating the one and only Jack Nicholson with a Jack Off! Double Feature highlighting two memorable - not to mention very different - turns from one of cinema's most celebrated actors. Join us at 7:00 pm for CHINATOWN, then stick around and dance with the devil in the pale moonlight for BATMAN (1989) at 9:45 pm. See one, or see 'em both!

In Roman Polanski's neo-noir drama CHINATOWN, Jack Nicholson stars (alongside Faye Dunaway and John Huston) as Private eye Jake Gittes, who lives off the murky moral climate of sunb-aked, pre-World War II Los Angeles. When he's hired by a beautiful socialite (Dunaway) to investigate her husband's extra-marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together.

"As private investigator Jake Gittes, hired to dig up some dirt on Hollis Mulwray, chief engineer of Los Angeles's water department, Nicholson saunters round the city delivering one-liners with offhand brilliance." (Daily Telegraph)

"This film is flawless." (Observer)

"Unmissable." (Guardian)

In Tim Burton's electric BATMAN, Jack Nicholson stars as maniacal villain The Joker, the victim of a horrible accident who morphed into a crazed criminal. Michael Keaton stars as the fabled Dark Knight, who emerged from his own childhood trauma to become a masked crimefighter. BATMAN also stars Kim Basinger as love interest Vicki Vale, the talented photojournalist desired by both men. Featuring a score by Danny Elfman and a title track from Prince.

"BATMAN is a stunning achievement, especially through the incredible and unique visualization of director Tim Burton." (The Hollywood Reporter)

"Nicholson's Joker is a villain worthy of a real superhero and Keaton's Batman gets to perform some cinematic superheroics of the first order." (People Magazine)
