Screening preceded by a discussion of the film’s sound design by Colby students in MU237A (Film Music and Sound)

Tim Burton’s Batman highlights the enduring mythology of the Batman character by visually mixing time frames: the 1930s, when the original Batman comics emerged; the 1960s, when the campy animated TV series premiered; and the 1980s, the actual time of this film’s production. Danny Elfman’s gestural score also participates in this mythology-building, refusing to locate the film in a place or time and instead creating a dark atmosphere that highlights the split both within Batman/Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) and the close relationship between Batman and the Joker (Jack Nicholson).

(PG-13, 126 min., 1989)

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.
