Tim Burton’s iconic film appears on the big screen, with Danny Elfman’s Grammy Award-winning score performed live-to-picture by your Omaha Symphony! Batman stars Michael Keaton as Gotham’s caped vigilante and Jack Nicholson as his nemesis, The Joker.
Gotham City. Crime boss Carl Grissom (Jack Palance) effectively runs the town but there's a new crime fighter in town - Batman (Michael Keaton). Grissom's right-hand man is Jack Napier (Jack Nicholson), a brutal man who is not entirely sane... After falling out between the two Grissom has Napier set up with the Police and Napier falls to his apparent death in a vat of chemicals. However, he soon reappears as The Joker and starts a reign of terror in Gotham City.
In addition to the score, this film features songs written and recorded by Prince, including "Batdance", "Scandolous" and "Trust".
