Why so serious? Put on your best outfit and participate On Set Cinema in August at Bruce Wayne’s penthouse in downtown Gotham (aka downtown Chicago) for a very special screening of The dark knight
A screening of The dark knight is held right where Joker (Heath Ledger) and his minions crash Harvey Dent’s (Aaron Eckhart) fundraising party and face Batman (Christian Bale) in battle, after which Joker pushes Rachel (Maggie Gyllenhaal) out of a window. This is one of the most engaging scenes in the entire Dark Knight trilogy. The building where this scene was shot is located in downtown Chicago on Wacker Dr and has since been transformed into the Chicago Architecture Center. The scene was actually filmed on the building’s first floor – the production used green screens to digitally fill in the Gotham skyline during post-production.
There are drinks, free Garrett’s popcorn, a film location tour of the scene, and merchandise for special events. Fans are encouraged to dress in costume or formal attire as in the movie, but it is of course not required to attend. This will be an unforgettable experience for fans and a great way to celebrate Heath Ledger’s incredible work creating the iconic The dark knight Joker character … you leave with a permanent smile on your face.

We all know there’s only so close you can get to a movie if you watch it from the couch at home … but what if you could just step inside the screen? Watch movies like Beetlejuice It follows The Blob and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in places where much of the action takes place – whether that’s in a small city department store where Sarah Michelle Gellar ran for her life in I know what you did last summer or in a California mansion where Sidney Prescott and Billy Loomis face off during the climax of Scream, On Set Cinema will take you there.
