Bat-Marathon 2: Jokerthon!

"All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6/16 - this filled up in less than a day, but don't let the waitlist keep you from RSVPing!  Oftentimes people's plans change, so definitely join the waitlist!  Please keep in mind if you have a +1 on the waitlist the only way you'll be bumped is if 2 spaces open at the same time.

 

Last year we held our first Bat-Marathon and it was such a success, we've decided to make it an annual event!  This year we're celebrating the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker!

 

Caeser Romero, Mark Hamill, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger:  all insanely different takes on the same character who's been around since 1940.

Originally inspired by the main character in "The Man Who Laughs," the Joker has been portrayed over the last 70+ years in a myriad of ways, and we're going to show you all kinds of variations of him.

If you missed last years' Bat-Marathon, we showed some things you've most likely never seen before (original 40s serial, Batman: Dead End, Turkish Batman) and this year's going to be no different!

 

 

 

 

 

Bring your cameras, take pics!

 

 

 

 

 

Schedule:

6pm - Arrive, Socialize, drink/eat

7pm - Start the screenings, drink, laugh maniacally

We will have short breaks throughout the night.  We have the place as late as we want (they close at 4am)!

Where to Find Us: We will be meeting in the back room of the bar.

Food and Drinks: The bar has both, so bring your money. Tip your server!

 

"See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum, and one night, one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum any more. They decide they're going to escape! So, like, they get up onto the roof, and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moon light... stretching away to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem. But his friend, his friend didn't dare make the leap. Y'see... Y'see, he's afraid of falling. So then, the first guy has an idea... He says 'Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!' B-but the second guy just shakes his head. He suh-says... He says 'Wh-what do you think I am? Crazy? You'd turn it off when I was half way across!" - The Joker, The Killing Joke

    A great selection! I especially enjoyed the movie at the end and the Filipino Batman/Joker movie. :)

    Hey, how long does this go on, and how late can I arrive? Something came up for earlier in that evening, so I wouldn't be able to show up until pretty late, maybe even past 11 p.m. Any info would be appreciated.
