Batman Returns

Directed by
Tim Burton

We’re thrilled to be closing out the year with Tim Burton’s second pass at the Batman franchise, considered by many to be the caped crusader’s finest screen adventure.

“The rarest of Hollywood beasts — a sequel that’s better than the original.” – The Boston Globe

The monstrous Penguin (Danny DeVito), who lives in the sewers beneath Gotham, joins up with wicked shock-headed businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken) to topple the Batman (Michael Keaton) once and for all. But when Shreck’s timid assistant, Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer), finds out, and Shreck tries to kill her, she is transformed into the sexy Catwoman. She teams up with the Penguin and Shreck to destroy Batman, but sparks fly unexpectedly when she confronts the caped crusader.

“Something about the filmmaker’s eccentric, surreal, childlike images seems to strike a deep chord in the mass psyche: he makes nightmares that taste like candy.” – Newsweek
