Batman fans will be able to experience Christopher Nolan’s complete “Dark Knight” trilogy in Imax, as the mega-screen exhib is creating a digital Imax master for the first installment “Batman Begins.”
Warner Bros. partnered with AMC Theaters to screen the trilogy at a total 296 AMC locations in the U.S., of which 76 now will be in Imax.
Trilogy screenings for regular and Imax houses will begin at 6 p.m. on July 19, leading up to midnight showtimes of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
“As anticipation for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has risen, our guests have made their voices heard about the kind of experience they expect for this installment of what’s become a legendary franchise,” said AMC programming prexy Robert Lenihan. “We have been working to ensure we could provide our guests an event that was truly, completely in Imax.”
