In celebration of Batman’s 80th anniversary, Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that all three films in Christopher Nolan’s $2.5 billion “Dark Knight” Trilogy are returning to the big screen.
The films will be screened on IMAX in honour of the first-ever appearance of Batman in the comics.
Toronto is the only Canadian city to screen the “Dark Knight” Trilogy, which also takes place in Los Angelos, New York, San Francisco and Indianapolis.
The Toronto screening will take place on Saturday, April 20 at the Ontario Place Cinesphere Theatre.
In all five cities, all three movies will be seen in the director’s preferred format, IMAX 70mm, providing an all-encompassing movie-going experience.
Nolan, with “The Dark Knight,” was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX cameras, revolutionizing the integration of IMAX and standard formats, according to screening organizers.

“Christopher Nolan broke new ground with the ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today’s audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen,” said Jeff Goldstein, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Tickets for the Toronto event are on sale now for $60, which includes screenings for the complete trilogy. The event starts at 12 pm and will run until 10:45 pm with 90 minutes breaks in between each film.
