In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, four Batman movies are making a return to theaters. Each of the four movies will be playing on the big screen for one day only next month.

The four movies returning to theaters are the four made in the 1980s and ’90s. They are Batman and Batman Returns directed by Tim Burton, as well as Batman Forever and Batman & Robin directed by Joel Schumacher.

You can find all of the info on when the movies are playing and where to get tickets below.

Here’s all of the details from Warner Brothers:

The Caped Crusader Returns to Theaters

This May, only in movie theaters nationwide, Batman (1989) returns “¦ followed by Batman Returns (1992), plus Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997). All four blockbuster cinematic adventures are coming back to movie theaters as Fathom Events presents a can’t-miss Batman movie event in honor of DC’s Batman 80th anniversary.

Each Batman film will play one day only in more than 600 movie theaters nationwide, beginning with director Tim Burton’s visionary Batman, a film whose unprecedented success and acclaim helped propel superhero movies that continue to reign supreme at the box office.

Tickets to each of the four Batman films are available beginning today at or at participating theater box offices.

Warner Bros., DC and Fathom Events are offering movie and Batman fans alike a chance to see these blockbuster films on the big screen. The schedule for this Caped Crusader cinematic celebration is:

  • Batman: Saturday, May 4, 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. (all times are local) – Get Tickets
  • Batman Returns: Monday, May 6, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – Get Tickets

  • Batman & Robin: Tuesday, May 14, 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – Get Tickets

Batman, starring Jack Nicholson as The Joker, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Kim Basinger as Vicki Vale, also marks its 30th anniversary, making this Fathom Events presentation a dual celebration for fans. The top-grossing film of 1989 led to three sequels, all of which are part of the series.

In Batman Returns, both Keaton and Burton are back, along with Danny DeVito as The Penguin, Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Christopher Walken as Max Schreck in a film equally hailed as the first for its eye-popping visual flair and riveting performances.

Val Kilmer dons the Batsuit in 1995’s Batman Forever, along with an all-star cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, Jim Carrey as The Riddler, Nicole Kidman as Dr. Chase Meridian, Chris O’Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, and Drew Barrymore as Sugar.

In 1997’s Batman & Robin, George Clooney is the Caped Crusader and O’Donnell is back as Robin, alongside such indelible performers as Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Mr. Freeze, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy, and Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl.

“The cycle of “˜Batman’ films that began with Tim Burton’s big-screen classic thirty years ago this summer is an amazing group of films that helped usher in an exciting new era of moviemaking,” said Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas. “We’re honored Warner Bros. has turned to Fathom Events to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman with these iconic superhero films.”
