To mark the 80th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, the ’80s/’90s series of live-action Batman films are returning to cinemas. The four movies – known as the Batman Anthology – will be screened at specially selected Vue cinemas on Sunday 19th May.

Batman – The Anthology Marathon will include Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992), as well as Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997). The marathon begins at 12pm and runs until just before 9pm (covering around 500 minutes of film).

Tickets for the event are £12.24 (just £3.06 per film) and can be booked via the Vue website (just search for Batman). A ticket gives you access to all four movies – of course, you can simply skip the entries you don’t care for.

I’ve booked my ticket. I’m so excited!

Earlier this year I attended Bat Con UK where I got to watch Batman and Batman Returns back-to-back on the big screen. That was pretty cool, but I’m even more excited about this marathon as it includes the Schumacher movies which never get a big screen re-release.

I honestly never thought Batman & Robin would ever get re-screened at the cinema. Never, ever.

I can’t wait.

I’m not being sarcastic. Read my thoughts on Batman & Robin if you don’t believe me.

Roll on May!
