Tim Burton’s Batman made a huge impact for comic books and comic book movies back in the day. For most people, this Batman is their definitive Batman, as it brought some darkness back to a character whose last live-action take was pretty campy and adventurous. I was a little too young to understand and/or appreciate the flick back in the day, but I’m aware of its impact. (I’m more of a Batman Returns fan myself.)
Well, down here in South Florida, we’ve got some folks who do appreciate it. My buddy Marc Ferman is putting together this special 25th anniversary screening of the movie for his Popcorn Nights at O-Cinema. Popcorn Nights is a monthly celebration of cult movies from yesteryear, allowing for movie fans to gather together and enjoy a night out. This month, Popcorn Nights and O-Cinema are pulling out all the stops and making sure that Batfans and movie fans alike will have a memorable night.
The festivities go down on May 27th, 2014 at the wonderful independent theatre, O-Cinema. The flick starts at 9PM, but you’d probably want to head there early to catch the Cheeseburger Baby food truck and the costume contest at 8PM. Best costume will be getting a prize. Tickets are going fast, already halfway to selling out and if there wasn’t enough incentive, 20 lucky folks will be going home with a special Batman print seen here:
Here at DKN, we’ve been raving about a new short film featuring Deathstroke entitled Deathstroke: Arkham Assassin. If you haven’t caught it yet, then this might be good opportunity to catch it on the big screen. Popcorn Nights will also be screening the acclaimed short film before the feature presentation of Batman.
All pertinent information is listed in this nifty little flyer:
