ENCORE SCREENINGS: THE PEOPLE’S JOKER

May 24 & 26, 2024
The People’s Joker
In the absurdist autobiographically-inspired dark comedy that boldly reimagines the Joker’s origin, a painfully unfunny aspiring clown (Vera Drew as Joker the Harlequin) grapples with her gender identity while unsuccessfully attempting to join the ranks of Gotham City’s sole comedy program in a world where comedy has been outlawed. Uniting with a ragtag team of rejects and misfits, Joker the Harlequin forms an illegal anti-comedy troupe that puts her on a collision course with the devious caped crusader controlling the city.
Dir: Vera Drew / 2024 / US / 92 min

“The People’s Joker is an unabashed love letter to Batman properties, to camp, stand-up comedians, and – most importantly – the trans community. It is daring and ambitious and unapologetic.” – Joe Lipsett, Bloody Disgusting

“Not only is it damn funny, with each of the lines delivered by a dynamic Drew landing perfectly, but it’s a genuinely incisive work of cinematic reflection that’s the exact type of kick in the pants the often empty genre could use.” – Chase Hutchinson, The Stranger

“The People’s Joker is a fearless, gloriously funny, and moving act of cinematic anarchy.” – Alejandra Martinez, Austin Chronicle

SCREENING: FRI 5/24 4PM; SUN 5/26 4PM

Tickets are available at the box office 30 minutes before showtimes.
