Due to overwhelming fan demand and sold out theaters in major markets, more than 300 theater locations have been added for the big-screen debut of Batman: The Killing Joke, now showing at over 1,000 U.S. cinemas and making this the widest rollout for any event in Fathom Events' history. The acclaimed graphic novel-turned-film will be shown for just one night on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time. This event reunites the foundation of Batman: The Animated Series with Bruce Timm returning as executive producer, and actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their seminal roles as Batman and The Joker, respectively.

In addition to the animated feature, audience members will get to experience a special introduction from Hamill, plus a never-before-seen documentary about the actor and his passion for this project. The event also includes a special behind-the-scenes look at how the Joker's memorable, yet disturbing, song and dance number was recreated for this feature. Batman: The Killing Joke is a 2K presentation that has been remastered for this theatrical event.


Tickets for Batman: The Killing Joke can be purchased online by visiting or at participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website.
