THE DARK KNIGHT Returning To Select IMAX Screens For One Week Only As Part Of Its 10th Anniversary Celebration

As The Dark Knight celebrates its tenth anniversary today, a new report has confirmed that the critically-acclaimed Christopher Nolan-directed blockbuster will return to IMAX screens for one week only!

Variety has learned that Warner Bros. Pictures will be re-releasing Christopher Nolan's critically-acclaimed superhero blockbuster The Dark Knight, which starred Academy Award-winner Christian Bale in the title role, in four select IMAX theaters later this summer to commemorate the film's 10-year anniversary. 

The film will be screened for one week only, starting Friday, August 24 and tickets will go on sale this Friday, July 20 for the following four locations:

  • AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Universal City
  • AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York
  • AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco
  • Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto
The Dark Knight was partially filmed with 70mm IMAX cameras and became the first major motion picture in cinematic history to have even been partially shot in the premium format. Nolan and cinematographer Wally Pfister filmed four key sequences in IMAX, including the Joker's (Heath Ledger) opening bank robbery and the car chase that takes place midway through the movie. Overall, the film contained about 28 minutes of IMAX footage. 

Christian Bale and director Christopher Nolan reunite following their blockbuster success with Batman Begins! This time, Heath Ledger joins the cast as The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart stars as Harvey Dent in an all-new adventure of The Dark Knight. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and new district attorney Harvey Dent (Eckhart--Thank You for Smoking), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham City forever. The three enjoy early success, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker (Ledger--Brokeback Mountain), who throws Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman ever closer to crossing the line between hero and vigilante.
