LOS ANGELES -- Batman is turning 80 this year, and Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy is coming back to select theatres to celebrate in high-resolution 70mm IMAX.
Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein said Tuesday that the engagement will kick off in Los Angeles at Universal CityWalk on March 30 with back-to-back screenings of "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises."
Nolan will participate in a Q&A between the second and third films.
On April 13, the trilogy will screen in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Indianapolis, where audiences can also see footage from Nolan's Q&A.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday at 9 a.m. Pacific.
The caped crusader first appeared in the comics in 1939.
