Nightmare Alley

Fri. 21 January 2022 — Thu. 27 January 2022

Based on the 1946 original novel of the same name, which was first made into a classic film noir released in 1947, Nightmare Alley follows an ambitious carnival worker (Bradley Cooper) with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words. He hooks up with a psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who is even more dangerous than he is.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), Nightmare Alley is a sleek and stylish film noir with a nod to the director's earlier work.
