About this event

Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society.  A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him.  Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study. 

Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he’s never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin.  Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events.

Please note

the hard of hearing screening is on Tuesday 5 November at 3.30pm

the parent and baby screening is on Wednesday 6 November at 11.30am 

Consciously channelling classics such as Taxi Driver and The King Of Comedy, it's a visually striking, breathtakingly dangerous reflection of our broken times wherein a deluded loner finally finds himself empowered and noticed when he picks up a gun.
