Batman to return to North East screens for special anniversary screenings

Calling all superhero lovers!

Vue Gateshead is shining the bat symbol into the air in the hope of assembling North East Batman lovers to celebrate the iconic character’s first appearance in DC’s Detective Comics back in 1939.

On Saturday 16 September, the cinema will be showing some of the most iconic films back to the big screen to celebrate Batman Day.

Throughout the day, Vue will be premiering Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989, showcasing Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson in the infamous roles of Batman and Joker.

Next, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight will be screened, featuring Heath Ledger’s legendary and oscar-winning portrayal as the Joker.

Finally, Joaquin Phoenix will take to the screen in Joker ahead of the hotly anticipated sequel featuring none other than Lady Gaga.

All three of these epic Batman blockbusters also return to the big screen as part of Warners Bros 75th anniversary, which Vue has marked by rescreening a number of the production company’s most iconic films, including the The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and sci-fi film Interstellar, all of which will be screening at Vue venues later this year.

Robert Lea, Head of Screen Content at Vue Entertainment, said: “Some of the most recognisable big screen moments of all time come from the adventures of Batman in his many blockbusters, so we’re thrilled to offer film fans a chance to catch some of his greatest adventures this Batman Day.

“Our Back on the Big Screen releases have been proving incredibly popular with film fans looking to rewatch their favourites or even see classics for the first time – and we’re hugely excited to bring Batman back to Vue this September.”
