The classic Batman films that helped turn a generation of moviegoers into fans of the Dark Knight will be returning to theaters this May.
Fathom Events often organizes theatrical re-releases of older movies and television specials. Now, the organization will be bringing the old-school Batman films, Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, back to the big screen.

The films will be screened in 4K on the following days: Batman will air May 4, Batman Returns on May 6, Batman Forever on May 12 and Batman and Robin on May 14. Locations for those screenings are available on Fathom Events' website.
The event is in celebration of Batman's 80th Anniversary and the 30th Anniversary of Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film, which starred Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
The original films are among some of the most famous superhero films ever made and feature iconic performances from Keaton, Nicholson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Danny DeVito, Jim Carrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Although they received their fair share of criticism, the films helped pave the way for modern superhero films.
Fathom Events has previously screened such films as The Wizard of Oz, Batman: The Killing Joke and Mob Psycho 100.
