    So...What do you guys say?
    I plan to be in costume on opening day or night of the film so that all the kids, young and old can take pics with the Batman or just come up and say HI.

    I havent decided exactly which theater I plan to be at....Eaton Center is a possibility, the Multiplex down town is a VERY good possibility or even something like Colossus in Woodbrigdge...'cause it's around the corner from my home....LOL!

    Anyway....
    I'm working out all the details and once I iron out an arrangement with management from a particular theater I'll let you guys know where and if it'll be an all day thing....an evening gig....whatever...
    I'd love to meet everyone who can make it from this board.
    It would be fun to finally put a face to some of the screen names here that have been so cool and supportive of my work.

    As soon as I have more to share I'll let you know.
    If anyone here thinks they'd be up for this....chime in and say 'yay'!

    Also...I need to run something fun I want to do for the Hype board to the Moderator or Administrator here. I emailed the Superhero Hype a week ago but I have a feeling they didnt get it.
    Can anyone suggest who I should talk to for getting the OK on something pertinent to this board?

    Thanks again.....:)
    David

    Good stuff - I'm not that far away, so it's a possibility........IMAX is my first choice to see it in first, so do any of those theatres you mentioned have the IMAX format?

    Err... David Eaton Centre doesn't have a theater anymore. -_-;
    How about Paramount @ Richmond and John St?

    I think that's the one I'm considering. Is that not the huuuuge theater downtown?
    If so that's the one I'd like to be at.

    I will look into it this week...I'll let the SW hype die down a bit before going to talk to management about this Batman thing but I think this is the theater I recall as being pretty big and real nice looking.

    I hope everyone can make it. It would certainly be fun for us all to meet and hang out...maybe go for a drink afterwords....be it coffee, beer, pop or milk...whatever it is you're into............. or allowed to drink....:)
    It's always fun to meet people you've only gotten to know as screen names on a board.
    I think it'll be a lot of fun for all.

    That's cool.
    I'm thinking of going to the Paramount too on June 15th (early showing). I hope I can make it and that my schedule becomes less hectic as the film approaches.

    Very cool!
    But you have to shave!
    Are you going to watch the movie in the suit, or are you just planning on being there for the kids?

    LOL!

    Of course I will have to shave..:)!
    My plan is to be there all day, and there could be a few other hero's or villans there with me...working it all out now.

    I plan to watch the film at some point during the day....not sure yet about that detail but what I am sure I want to do is be there for all the kids and simply have some fun in costume.

    With some luck I'll have this all ironed out shortly...we are already in talks with several theaters and as soon as the official OK is given I'll be sure to update it here. This is all being done at no charge and just to add to the hype surrounding the opening day.

    As a kid I personally would have loved to meet Batman in person and seeing as I have the possibility to make that dream come true for kids now a days I really feel strongly about doing this.
    Besides....might meet a few board members along the way....and that's always a good thing. :)

    Hey David, the Paramount downtown sounds like a great place for us Toronto board members to meet up. As it is right now I will probably be seeing it with a few friends on opening day, but I would bring em along depending on the theater you're at. It'll be great to meet some of the board members here. Post this up on BOF as well!!! There are a couple of people at BOF that are Torontonians.

    David, you have to go to the Paramount theater because that's the best place to be seen as Batman.
    You're also right by the City-TV building so maybe a reporter and a camera crew will be there too to hype up the opening day of Batman Begins.
    In addition, a Hooter's restaurant is just 2 minutes nearby just in case you have an urge for some beer and chicken wings. ;)

    I agree with Paramount being the perfect place to do it. It's right near a subway station, its right near Silver Snail comics, and of course Hooters. its a really cool spot to do it, and ya, a camera crew is deffinately a possibility.

    I'd love to, but it's a bit of a walk from Seattle to Toronto.

    They usually do with blockbusters. I hope City covers it. That Hooters has some really hot chicks BTW.

    Just do not put on that heavy cumbersome leather cape. It is not Batman at all. Wear a cape that billows with the wind. Oh and if u r wearing a mask with the pint things around the neck, tuck it into your tights shirt. I hate those pointy things sticking out. make sure the cape is long! Mop the floor with it. Batman does!

    OK...

    Just got confirmation that the Paramount Theater is where I'll be for the opening. There will be some others with me in costume also.....heh heh heh...:)

    I really hope everyone who's in the city can make it as it would be fun to meet as many of you as possible.

    Although all the details have to be worked out between the theater and myself as to just how we're going to do this...the bottom line is we're officially going to be there!!!!

    Yippie!
