The Auditorium Theatre’s 125th Anniversary season celebration continues tonight, March 19, with its Made in Chicago Movie Series.
The Lobby of the Theatre will be transformed into a “Batcave” to celebrate the free screening Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster hit, “The Dark Knight.”
The evening kicks off at 6 p.m. with a Superhero photo booth, a special appearance by members of Acrobatica Infiniti and Batman-Themed Cocktails proceeding the 7 p.m. movie.
“The Dark Knight,” filmed in Chicago in 2007 features Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman and the late Heath Ledger as the nefarious Joker.
The drama pits Batman against his fateful nemesis, the Joker–a man determined to wreak chaos on the good people of Gotham.
With the odds stacked against him, the caped crusader faces his most difficult psychological challenge yet, questioning his motives and whether he can save Gotham from the clutches of the city’s latest super criminal. “The Dark Knight” is rated PG-13.
Free general admission seating is available for tonight’s event at Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University (50 E. Congress Pkwy.). For more information call 312 341 2310 or visit the website.
