Batman Return of the Caped Crusaders in Theaters

Since Batman: The Killing Joke got plenty of people into theaters, Fathom Events is bringing the next animated movie from Warner Bros. and DC Comics to the big screen as well.

As we’ve seen previously, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders is bringing classic 1966 Batman TV series stars Adam West and Burt Ward back as Batman and Robin for a new animated adventure that sees them facing off against all of their deadliest foes yet again. Fans will have a chance to catch the animated flick in theaters for one night only, just before it becomes available on Digital HD.

Get the details on when you can catch Batman Return of the Caped Crusaders in theaters below.

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for the animated film, here it is:

In addition to the movie playing on the big screen, a special featurette will be played which takes a look at the lasting pop-culture impact of the Batman franchise’s villains, titled “Those Dastardly Desperados”.

Fathom Events will have screenings of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders on October 10th at 2pm, 7pm and 10pm local time. Tickets are already on sale, and you can get the entire list of participating theaters all around the country over here. We can likely expect this to happen every time there’s a new animated film coming to the big screen at this point. It’s just extra money in the pockets of the studio for a movie that will be on home video shortly.

It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!”

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders is directed by Rick Morales (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash) with a script written by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) and James Tucker (Justice League vs. Teen Titans). The animated features arrives on Digital HD on October 11 and Blu-ray and DVD on November 1.
