The Dark Knight Coming Back to IMAX Theatres for Batman's 80th Anniversary
To commemorate the 80th anniversary of Batman, Warner Bros. will be returning all three "Dark Knight" films to IMAX theatres. Jeff Goldstein, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, made the announcement.
"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", said Goldstein.
First, on Saturday, March 30, the films-2005's "Batman Begins," 2008's "The Dark Knight" and 2012's "The Dark Knight Rises"-will screen back-to-back at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood, California. During an interlude between the second and third films, Nolan will join the audience for a moderated Q&A discussion on the movies.
Then on April 13, the Trilogy will screen at AMC Lincoln Square in New York City and AMC Metreon in San Francisco, followed by Cinesphere Ontario Place, Toronto, and IMAX Theatre at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis, on April 20, each accompanied by the footage of Nolan's Los Angeles appearance.
In all five cities, all three movies will be seen in the director's preferred format, IMAX® 70mm, providing an all-encompassing moviegoing experience. In fact, it was Nolan who, with "The Dark Knight," was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX® cameras, revolutionizing the integration of IMAX and standard formats. He again utilized IMAX cameras even more extensively in "The Dark Knight Rises."
Tickets are on sale now and guests who buy tickets for all three films will receive a lanyard and special "Dark Knight" Trilogy collectible.
