Fathom Events, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment Spotlight Adam West,
Burt Ward and Julie Newmar Voicing Classic Roles

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Travel back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when
Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes.
Audiences will have the opportunity to join all the animated excitement
as it unfolds on the big screen for one special day. Fathom Events is
once again partnering with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to bring “Batman:
Return of the Caped Crusaders
” to movie theaters for three
exclusive showings on Monday, October 10 at 2:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and
10:00 p.m. local time, before it comes to EST on October 11 and Blu-ray™
on November 1.

Bringing these iconic characters to animated life are Adam West
(Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman).
In the new film, Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman have combined
their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo
will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and
restore order in Gotham City.

In addition to the film, audiences will view an exclusive pre-screening
introduction, and a post-screening preview of “Those Dastardly
Desperados,” a featurette that explores how these fiends became more
than just antagonists in a Batman story – they became icons of American
pop culture.

Tickets for “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” can be
purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in more than 700 select movie theaters. For a
complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters
and participants are subject to change).

“Working with Warner Bros. on ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ was a great
experience and we knew it was something we wanted to duplicate,” Fathom
Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “With ‘Batman:
Return of the Caped Crusaders’ we get to give our audiences another
extremely exciting event experience driven by the return of three
nostalgic pop culture names to their most memorable roles.”

“Fans have voiced a strong desire to see DC-centric animated films on
the big screen for years, and ‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’
offers another opportunity to entertain our audience with a
highly-anticipated cinema event,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros.
Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Warner
Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to launch our newly branded ‘DC
Classics Collection’ films with a Fathom Events presentation.”
