Aw man, i would have went nuts, like, really genuinely upset if i had been too young to see the film in theatres back then. In the Uk they actually brought in a new rating '12', when Batman was released, so older kids could see it. If they hadn't, i would have been too young, as it would have been a '15'.
and concerning all the memoribilia...i have told this one before, but i'll tell it again, two of my pals and i skipped school one afternoon in 89, and my pal grabbed a whole rack of Batman magnets off the counter of a shop in the town centre. I always remember running through an alley and turning to see him falling on his arse holding the rack sof magnets, me and the other pal kept running thinking he would catch up, but he didn't.
I met him at his house that night though, and got a couple of magnets off him, a batmobile, a joker, and a batsymbol.
