Second Saturday Outdoor Cinema: Batman

When: Sat., June 8 2013

Every second Saturday from June through September, The Belcourt’s outdoor wall turns into a screen and its side parking lot becomes Nashville’s downtown drive-in — a blacktop bacchanalia where families can set up blankets and lawn chairs on the pavement (or watch from their cars) and enjoy a night of free movies and pre-show oddities. Tonight is Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman, with Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader and Jack Nicholson as The Joker; it’s the movie that, for better and worse, convinced Hollywood comic-book material was worth being taken seriously both artistically and financially (mostly the latter). C’mon now, everybody sing “Batdance!”
