—an announcement from the Maritime Aquarium
Tickets are $20 each for “Batman Begins” at noon, “The Dark Knight” at 3 p.m. and “The Dark Knight Rises” at 8 p.m., all playing May 11t on the Aquarium’s six-story IMAX screen, the largest in Connecticut.
(As a bonus for ticket-holders to the 8 p.m. movie, a videotaped “Dark Knight” Q&A with Nolan will be shown at 7:30 p.m.)
Discounted tickets for the entire trilogy remain on sale as well, for $50. Guests buying tickets for the trilogy will receive a keepsake lanyard and rare “Dark Knight” collectible.
The Maritime Aquarium is one of only five theaters in the U.S. offering this special IMAX engagement of the “Dark Knight” trilogy, presented to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman’s first appearance in a comic book.
The Aquarium’s normal IMAX movie schedule is suspended on Sat., May 11.
With “The Dark Knight,” Christopher Nolan was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX cameras. He did it again with “The Dark Knight Rises,” shooting more than an hour of that blockbuster with IMAX cameras. Thus, seeing these movies in an IMAX Theater is how Nolan intended them to be experienced.
“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,” Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.’ domestic distribution president, said in a statement. “To have the added privilege of hearing Chris’ insights makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
The acclaimed films, starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, grossed $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office.
The PG-13-rated episodes are:
– “Batman Begins” (2005), with Liam Neeson as Ducard and Cillian Murphy as The Scarecrow. It’s 2 hours and 20 minutes long.
– “The Dark Knight” (2008), featuring Heath Ledger in his Academy Award-winning role of The Joker. It’s 2 hours and 32 minutes long.
– “The Dark Knight Rises” (2012), with Tom Hardy as the villainous Bane and Anne Hathaway as Selina/Catwoman. It’s 2 hours and 44 minutes long.
