The NES game kicks ass but it's quite difficult. I never made it to the Joker.

The game has one of the best NES songs. Yes, even better than the Super Mario Bros. theme. The one from the first stage, Streets of Desolation.

Same here. Somebody made a Batman Arkham Asylum music video with a sick metal cover of Streets Of Desolation.

The B89 cereal was MUCH better than the Returns cereal. It kinda tasted like a sweeter Cap'n Crunch.

As for the NES game, I still play it.

BEST THEATER EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE and I've been to cinema about 400 times in my life

I didn't see it in the theater when it came out but I did see it in the theater in 2005 when the Light in Leeds city centre showed it as a special showing, really glad I got to see it on the big screen.

I remember the cereal. It wasn't bad, and I think I still have the Batman piggy bank that came along with it.

As a six year old I was too young to see the movie.

But I remember seeing the promotional material and being terrified of Nicholson's Joker. I was so scared of him.

By the time Returns rolled around and I was eight, I was completely into Batman and not bothered by the first film, which I watched on VHS a lot.

Too young? They didn't exactly ban kids from seeing a PG-13 movie back then. I saw it when I was 4 or 5.

Depends in which country. Excerpt from NY Times article

“Batman” was aesthetically and thematically so dark that on the eve of release in Belgium, a few months after its stateside release, it was banned. Children under 16 weren't allowed to see it. Despite the fact that the Board had recently approved the “Rambo” movies and “License to Kill,” they held to their guns. “Batman” was perceived as much more dangerous than those other violent films dark tone and sensibility were more frightening than violence. The Belgian Police was actually present at cinemas to enforce the ruling

My mom took me multiple times to go see it in theaters, and I was 7. My cousins went with me, and they were 5 and 6.

Hell, my dad let me watch Robocop with him, and I was 5-6 years old.

saw it 4 times in the theater. i was 15 when it came out...

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.

My mother brought my brothers who were 10 & 7 at the time, I was 2 so I tagged along and that's how it began for me. Also strange that I do remember the '89 cereal as well.

I still have some of the comic periodicals like Comic Scene in which letters would pour in over the casting of Keaton as short and balding and Nicholson as old and pot bellied.

I saw it when it came out, and I remember being pretty disappointed, hoping it would be a darker and grittier Batman like what we got in the TDKR comic, which really blew me away when it came out. BB ended up being the movie I wish we got way back in '89, but I still give B'89 a lot of credit for making a statement for the genre the way it did at least success-/popularity-wise. It just didn't do it for me, and neither do most of Burton's movies.

Something like this happened with me living in Ecuador in the 80's as an 8 year old even with my uncle present the theaters wouldn't let me in to see Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom but they were ok years later when I was 11 to see Robocop

Begins was more realistic, but I don't know if I'd call it darker and grittier.

Yup. I believe I was 7 years old at the time, and having to go back a few times due to screenings being sold out, but I remember loving it. The film solidified me being a fan of Batman for life, and also got me more interested in comic books in general.
