Ten years ago, Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking blockbuster The Dark Knight was released. Commemorating the 10-year anniversary, Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing the film to four select IMAX locations for an exclusive, one-week engagement, beginning August 24, 2018.
With The Dark Knight, Nolan broke new ground—shooting select sequences of the movie with IMAX film cameras—making The Dark Knight the first major feature film to utilize IMAX 70mm film and take advantage of the format’s massive scale and increased resolution. The movie was hailed by both critics and audiences and went on to be the top-grossing release of 2008.
The exclusive limited engagement will offer the public an extremely rare opportunity to see The Dark Knight on the biggest screens possible, as it was intended to be seen—in IMAX 70mm film—offering a uniquely immersive cinematic experience. Tickets for the opening day go on sale this Friday, July 20, with showtimes only announced for August 24. The theatres will list additional showtimes for subsequent dates closer to release.
The Dark Knight will be playing for one screening a day at the following theatres:
