Before Wonder Woman and Aquaman were the unlikely saviours of the DC universe, and prior to Christian Bale earning clout as “the best Batman” (sorry Affleck), the tales of the Dark Knight were an entirely different breed of comic book entertainment.
I’m talking extended musical numbers to the sounds of Prince, Michelle Pfeiffer cracking whips in skin-tight leather, suits adorned with exaggerated nipples and codpieces, and Batman-specific credit cards; I wish I was joking about that last one but…
From May 23rd to the 26th, Dendy Cinemas Coorparoo will play host to the original Dark Knight series – Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), and Batman & Robin (1997) – in all its twisted and camp glory.
If you have fond memories of these films, if you want to make absolutely sure are what you were subjected to regarding George Clooney’s performance wasn’t just a bad dream, or if you’re too young to have any grasp on what any of these sentences mean, then re-visiting or experiencing these films feels almost like a certain duty for the comic book aficionados out there.
Each movie will be playing once a day over the course of their sessions, essentially meaning that should you want to watch them as a marathon setting Dendy has you covered.
