Batman Returns (30th Anniversary Screening!)

The Bat, the Cat, the Penguin.

“HELLo tHERE.”

In the second of Tim Burton‘s blockbuster BATMAN films, the legendary hero (Michael Keaton) does battle against the slinky, mysterious Cat Woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the diabolically bizarre, sinister Penguin (Danny DeVito). Can Batman (Michael Keaton) battle two formidable foes at once? Especially when one wants to be mayor and the other is romantically attracted to Bruce Wayne?

BATMAN RETURNS is the rarest of Hollywood beasts — a sequel that’s better than the original.” (Boston Globe)

“The strange, ambitious character work that comprises ‘Batman Returns’ is wrapped in the perfunctory framework of a Tim Burton superhero film.” (Slant Magazine)
