Fans of ‘Joker’ Pay their Homage at the Iconic Stairs

The Joker stairs scene has gone viral

Great movies always have their iconic moments.  Movies like;  “Clockwork Orange” with Alex Delarge having his eyes forced open, or the infamous “Jaws” shark approaching music. For the Joker movie with Joaquin Phoenix, this particular icon that will live in infamy is the stairs scene.

Joker has broken box office records and it’s even been hinted that Joaquin Phoenix may be getting an oscar for his performance.  The fandom itself has really taken a major affinity for the film.  For heaven’s sake, it’s not every day that you get an instant pop-culture classic. That can be especially said in the age when “movies have become theme park rides.”  Fandom for this film has hit an all-time high.  People have faith again in the artistic transcendental power of film.

I mean, frankly, who could forget that thrilling moment at the end of the movie.  I love that moment when Joker finally has his character arch.  That moment when he crazily goes down the stairs like some batshit coot and all the while he’s being followed by the police.

With Joaquin Phoenix taking on this role as the Joker villain, fans have taken it upon themselves to emblematize his performance on social media.  Fans from all over flock to the site where the stairs scene was filmed in order to pay their respects to the moment and recreate the scene for social media.  Here below are some of the best Joker stair scenes that fans reproduced on their social media.

The stairs, join Shakespeare and Anderson Avenues and go up West 167 Street.  Now they are officially known as “Joker Stairs” and listed at 1165 Shakespeare Ave.

Fans from all over come
