Movie Nights at Davies Symphony Hall

Nobody does the Joker like Jack Nicholson, and nobody does a movie soundtrack quite like Prince with Grammy Award-winning musical scores by composer Danny Elfman.  When the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra plays the film’s scores live it brings the entire experience to life and creates an intoxicating and brilliant atmosphere.

If you haven’t gone to a classic movie at Davies Symphony Hall yet, you may have heard there’s nothing quite like it.  You’re watching a film you already love, then Micheal Keaton says, “You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?” Then ‘POW!!’ He hits Jack Nicholson in the face, the crowd erupts, followed by 90 world class musicians playing a beautiful piece of music in a building designed for sound.  And don’t forget that Prince wrote several classic songs for the film including Partyman, Trust, and Scandalous.

The house is going to rock, these shows will sell out, I would get your Batman tickets now.

In Rolling Stone Magazine, Burton said he listened to Prince’s music constantly while filming Batman, particularly when conceiving its version of the Joker.  The film and soundtrack embody a fantastic and special blend of artistry and music, in fact the film won an Oscar for Best Art Direction and a Grammy for best musical composition.  This is the original Batman film, and there’s a reason it’s widely considered the greatest Batman of all time.

Speaking from experience, there isn’t a bad seat in the house for movie night at the Symphony.

Get your tickets to see Tim Burton’s Batman with music by Danny Elfman & Prince now, these shows will sell out.
