A Special Screening Of ‘Joker’ With A Live Orchestra Is Coming To Manchester

The Oscar-winning movie is set to be brought to life, live in concert.

Joaquin Phoenix’s adaptation on the story of Arthur Fleck gained some serious traction in 2019, earning him a whopping number of wins this awards season, including Best Actor at this year’s Oscars.

Now, fans can appreciate Joker all over again, with its award-winning score being performed by a live orchestra.

The live concert will tour the UK, hitting major cities over the summer – including Manchester! Taking place at Bridgewater Hall, guests will be able to watch the movie on a big screen while the orchestra plays along to the original soundtrack composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir.

Speaking of the event, Guðnadóttir said:

“I’m thrilled to get to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra.

“When we recorded the music, the orchestra brought such depth and detailed attention to the performances that we were all literally holding our breaths during most of the recording sessions. It was a beautiful trip. I’m so happy to get to go there again and for an audience to experience that too.”

The score has earned itself major recognition, being nominated for numerous awards including an Oscar, Golden Globe and a BAFTA.

The show will head to Manchester for one night only on November 1st.
