The Dark Knight, a film that critic Roger Ebert believes “redefined the possibilities of the comic book movie,” follows Batman/Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) as he and Gotham City officials fight back against a new and dangerous criminal who calls himself “The Joker” (Heath Ledger). In an escalation of increasingly dangerous situations, the Joker forces Batman and others to make ethical decisions that threaten the entire Batman legend. Also starring Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, and Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight received eight Academy Award nominations and won for Best Sound Editing and Best Supporting Actor for Ledger’s performance. (35mm)
Producer Michael Uslan is scheduled to be present.
