Record Breaking Batman: The Killing Joke


Seppin was asked the other night what movie he was most looking forward to seeing. Instead of answering with the Suicide Squad, which seemed most likely, he said Batman: The Killing Joke.

Well, apparently he is not the only one looking forward to seeing this movie.

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 biggest turn out 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 ground breaking animated film reunites the crew 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 (#CONROYHAMILL2016), 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 disturbingly chilling, song and dance number was recreated for this feature.

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.
