as others have said,this was a cultural phenomenon. only thing i can compare it to,that's more recent,was Star Wars Episode I 10 years late. in that Batman was EVERYWHERE! i mean you couldn't hit a drunk pedestrian that wasn't wearing a Batman shirt or hat with the logo on it!

1989 was the first truly "Mega-Movie Summer" that i can remember:

Batman
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Lethal Weapon 2
Star Trek V
Honey I Shrunk the Kids
A Nightmare on Elm Street 5
Friday the 13ht Part VIII
Ghostbusters II
Licence to Kill
Karate Kid Part III
Weekend At Bernie's
When Harry Met Sally
The Abyss

..it was a truly stacked summer!
Absolutely! It's still the biggest line I've ever seen for a film in my life. It literally stretched outside and around a block. Probably the greatest movie experience of my life, just witnessing all that as a kid.
