Ten Years Later, ‘The Dark Knight’ Returns to Theaters

On July18, 2008, The Dark Knight was released in theaters and changed things… forever. Ten years later, Warner Bros. is re-releasing Christopher Nolan’s seminal superhero film in select IMAX theaters for one week only.

The exclusive limited engagement will offer the public an extremely rare opportunity to see The Dark Knight in IMAX 70mm film

Tickets for the opening day go on sale this Friday, July 20, with showtimes only announced for August 24. The theaters will list additional showtimes for subsequent dates closer to release. These are the theaters showing this special edition of The Dark Knight:

  • AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Universal City
  • AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York City
  • AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco
  • Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto

Catch it in IMAX if you’re lucky enough to be in one of the four cities listed above!
