Soon everyone will be able to enjoy some of the best films ever featuring The Caped Crusader on the big screen once again. Batman Day is set for later this month. In celebration of one of their most iconic characters, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. will be screening three classic Batman films later this month.
Batman Day starts on Sept. 17. Fans will have the opportunity to celebrate the event by watching three awesome movies on the big screen. Cinemark will have exclusive showings of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, the original 1989 Batman movie, and Batman Returns.
BATMAN DAY IS BRINGING BACK THREE OF THE BEST DARK KNIGHT FILMS EVER TO CINEMAS
Fans will be able to enjoy their own personal Bat-Marathon by watching Mask of the Phantasm at 2:15 pm local time, Batman at 4:30 pm local time, and Batman Returns at 7:25 local time. The films will be playing at Cinemark theaters across the country. Fans can check if the Batman Day films will be playing at a Cinemark theater near them by checking the official website. Moviegoers can also check the Cinemark app.
For fans and moviegoers who are not keen on going to the theaters this month, they can also enjoy a Batman Day movie marathon right from the comfort of their own homes. The Batman Day movie marathon will air on Sept. 17 at 9/8 pm CST on TNT. They can also check out the films on the TNTdrama.com/TNT app anytime.
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and the 1989 Tim Burton Batman movie are not just great Batman films, they are cinematic classics period. They are easily worth seeing on the big screen, especially for fans who have never had the chance to watch them on the big screen. Batman Returns is a divisive, polarizing film, but it features some great production designs, costumes, and makeup work, not to mention an iconic performance by Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman/Selina Kyle.
DC Entertainment looks to be going all out for Batman Day later this month, so getting some special theatrical screenings of classic films is a nice touch. It appears Batman Day is a global event, with activations and initiatives across multiple platforms all across the world.
