By Creative Media TimesIn celebration of Batman’s 80th birthday, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, which features Christian Bale as Batman, is set to return to IMAX theaters for a north american five-city special engagement.
First created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger in 1939, the iconic superhero, published by DC Comics turns 80 this year.
The first screening will take place on Saturday March 30th in Los Angeles at the AMC CityWalk at Universal City. That screening will include a Q&A with director Christopher Nolan in attendance to discuss the movies. The trilogy will also screen in New York and San Francisco on April 13, followed by Toronto and Indianapolis on April 20.
Goldstein stated, “Christopher Nolan broke new ground with the ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today’s audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen. To have the added privilege of hearing Chris’s insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
The English director, screenwriter and producer is a big supporter of the format, with his other epic films Interstellar and Dunkirk released in the United Kingdom and the United States in IMAX 70 mm.
Tickets will go on sale beginning Wednesday at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT. Those who get the tickets will also receive a lanyard and special “Dark Knight” Trilogy collectible.
