Chinatown

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)
