If I could remember that far back now I would probably concede to that. The first trailers I watched more than any other trailer before or since.

I'd love to see ALL the Batman movies on the big screen again...

Unfortunately, I wasn't born yet/too young to see the Burton films, so they would be top priority.

I saw Returns in the theater when I was 6, and that's what started everything as far as my Batman fandom is concerned. Still haven't seen 89 on the big screen and that's a top priority for me too.

Seriously though, amazing how a big screen, Dolby 7.1 surround sound and a bag of popcorn can bring back those feelings of when you first saw the movie. These movies were designed for the big screen first and foremost. If IMAX ever hosts a trilogy marathon I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I'd love to see TDK in IMAX again. Best movie experience ever, especially with those advanced screening viral tickets

Batman and Robin was my first batman theater experience. It blew my 7 year old mind.

It happened again with BB, but that movie was actually great. Ill never forget how I felt walking out of that theater after watching BB. Just pure Batman Nerdvana.

Indeed it was worth it(although honestly, I would have paid more than $3 just to see it in theatres again, haha).

I REALLY hope in 2015, for the tenth year anniversary for Batman Begins, they play the marathon. Would be spectacular.

TDKR just screams a Bruce Wayne film than a Batman film like BB or a Gotham film like TDK. And for that, I don't think it bothers me as much that Batman isn't a focus on either of his returns from the Gotham citizens and what not. We get the minimum reactions of the main and minor characters and that's always been fine by me.

I saw the BB & TDK at same night before TDKR came out. I'm hoping a marathon again at the cinema. As you said they made for the big screen.

I remember waiting in line for Forever, but not much else.

Batman & Robin was the first movie I remember any hype for and really wanting to see it. And at age 7... the movie did not disappoint.

I had 7 or 8 years old when I saw Batman 89 on the big screen. And, of course, I saw Batman Returns, Forever, Batman and Robin, BB, TDK an TDKR, all on the big screen.
I started like the character because of that television series, which shown in Brazil in the '80s.

The 60s show was also shown in the UK in the 80s-90s. At the age of 5-6 I remember watching it with my sister and her friend, who loved it. They both used to pretend to be Catwoman, but with capes, because capes are cool. I spent most of my time being tied up.

I remember my Dad taking me to see Batman in '89. I had just turned 4. Thankfully, for the rest of the theatre, I was a quiet kid.
Looking forward to seeing TDKR again tonight!

I vaguely remember the show being shown during the 90's... but moreso the movie.

In Ireland, they used to play it on the RTE channel. They played it every saturday and sunday at 12 o clock. It really gave the cliffhangers some impact.

A shame the show is no longer played over here.

I heard B&R so I showed up.


...but for me, Batman Returns was the first Batman movie I saw (on tv) but the first one I saw in the theater was Batman & Robin. However my first introduction to Batman was the animated series. I never knew there was a Batman 89 or Forever until the early 2000s.

First was Batman '89 for me, even though I didn't know what the hell was going on.

I saw Batman Returns in theaters with my mom. Afterwards she took me to McDonald's and I got one of the collectors' cups (Penguin).

I still have it.

Lucky you. You got one before McDonalds killed their promotion of the movie because of the backlash. I missed out.

I never saw the old series in theaters, only VHS. Begins was my first Bat-theater experience. It's still the most times ive been in a theater for a Batman movie.

My introduction was Batman 89 and Returns soon after. I must have been 3-4 years old in the early 90s watching those movies and freaking out. Getting all the toys. Then it was the Animated Series.

I liked Batman Forever (Carrey, Kilmer, the scenes about his childhood actually freaked me out as a 7 year old kid). But I didn't like Two-Face or much of the Robin stuff.

Batman & Robin. I thank the lord I never saw that in theaters. I was 9 when I rented it, and even at that age, I couldn't watch the whole movie in one sitting . I was a little kid and I still knew it was terrible!

I was always disappointed in the 90s, early 2000's because I wanted the Animated Series/Mask Of The Phantasm style to be brought to life in live-action. And instead I kept getting the opposite.

At the time of Batman Begins, I wasn't aware of all the classic comic/graphic novels by Miller, O'Neill, Loeb, etc. But it just blew my mind and the tone was what I loved about Batman. After that, that's when I started digging into the source material. It took me 16 years by that point but it was worth it. Even though the one comic I remember reading as a kid was Knightfall. So yeah, I didn't grow up on comics, I grew up on animated/live-action Batman first.

I remember seeing B89 on VHS when I was maybe 7 or 8. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. The Axis Chemical sequence had the same effect on me then as it does now: the way that this shadowy, masked man drifted through the building like a ghost, dispatching aggressors with either a single sharp blow or the use of some mysterious gizmo, was so impressive. Crime didn't stand a chance!

Hell no! I loved it. And as long as I had fun that's probably what made my mom happy.
