DC Comics is just beginning its huge 80th anniversary celebration for Batman, and it appears that it will also include Christopher Nolan’s mesmerizing Dark Knight film trilogy. Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that it will bring Nolan’s trilogy back to the big screen. On March 30, fans can revisit Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood in California. Nolan will be in attendance, and he will also participate in an audience Q&A session between films.
That isn’t the only screening of the trilogy planned. On April 13, the trilogy will also screen at the AMC Lincoln Square in New York City and the AMC Metreon in San Francisco. A week later, fans can see it at the Cinesphere Ontario Place in Toronto, along with the IMAX Theater in Indianapolis. Footage from Nolan’s Q and A sessions will be included with all of these screenings. Tickets will go on sale on March 13 at 9:00am PST and will likely sell out fast. Those in attendance can also get a limited edition lanyard and trilogy collectible.
All of the films will be in IMAX 70mm, which is Nolan preferred format. Portions of The Dark Knight specifically used special IMAX equipment to get the full scope of the Hong Kong action sequences.
Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros Pictures, spoke about the importance of the films. In a press release, he said, “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’ insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
There’s no word if more screenings will take place throughout the year, but here’s to hoping. Would you want to see the Dark Knight saga on the big-screen again? Let us know in the notes below!
