The Dark Knight Rises: The IMAX Experience
FREE T-Shirts and the biggest screen in the region await Batman fans at the National Media Museum, Bradford.
The National Media Museum in Bradford will be handing out free T-Shirts for the epic finale of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy which opens next week.
The National Media Museum one of just five UK venues where it is possible to see The Dark Knight Rises in the full IMAX version, just as director Nolan intended it to be seen. To celebrate, the first 50 members of the audience to arrive in Batman fancy dress to each of the two evening screenings (6.20pm and 9.40pm) on Saturday 21 July will receive a free official T-shirt.*
T-shirts will also be awarded to the winners of the one-off Batman quiz on the evening of Thursday 26 July in the Museum’s café, starting at 6.30pm. Teams of up to four people can enter by booking a place with the Box Office on 0844 8563797.**
Nolan’s previous Batman film, The Dark Knight, was the first major feature film partially shot with IMAX cameras, and for the third installment of the trilogy he has used them again to film 60 minutes of footage (the most of any feature to date) which expand beyond the boundaries of non-giant IMAX cinemas to fill the full 48ft height of the National Media Museum’s IMAX screen. It is the only place in the region to see The Dark Knight Rises as it was meant to be seen. The first public screenings start at the National Media Museum and worldwide at 5am BST on 20 July, coinciding with midnight screenings in the USA.

The National Media Museum
The National Media Museum in Bradford, West Yorkshire, opened as the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford in 1983 with the remit to explore the art and science behind images and image-making, and has since become one of the most visited UK museums outside London.
With the aim to be the best museum in the world for inspiring people to learn about, engage with and create media, it draws from more than 3.5 million objects in its National Photography, Television, Cinematography and New Media Collections to create special exhibitions, interactive galleries and activities for families and adults.
It also organises two major film festivals each year – Bradford International Film Festival and Bradford Animation Festival plus the Fantastic Films Weekend in June, and is home to Europe’s first IMAX cinema screen.
