Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (25th Anniversary Screening!)

In this stylishly animated feature set in the 1940s, the troubled yet heroic Batman is pitted against a mysterious figure who is rubbing out Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, and who many believe is the caped crusader himself. Batman’s alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne, is about to get married to the lovely Andrea Beaumont, who helps him recover from his need to avenge his parents’ murder — meaning that his crime-fighting days may be numbered. Featuring the vocal talents of Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Stacy Keach, Dana Delaney, and Efrem Zimbalist Jr.

“A spin-off of the semi-hit animated TV series, ‘Batman: Mask of the Phantasm’ goes even further into the roots of the bat-dude’s particular pathologies.” (The Georgia Straight)

“Quintessential Batman and a quality cartoon.” (Film4)
