Cinema Memoir #40

Batman (June 23rd, 1989)

1989 was a pretty awesome year for movies, and Batman was probably the biggest movie of that year - I remember it vividly. No one had ever seen a movie like this. It was dark and funny, and full of action.

Seeing this movie in the theater was a really great experience. I remember the theater was packed because it was opening night, and there were actually people sitting in the isles and standing along the walls. I had never seen that before.

I never read comics as a kid, so to me Batman was Adam West from the 60's movie and TV show. This movie opened up new doors in my imagination and afforded me a fresh outlook on visual storytelling. Also, it was freaking cool!
