Batman and Harley Quinn is Coming to Theaters...for One Night Only

Batman and Harley Quinn is Coming to Theaters...for One...

By Tim Beedle Friday, June 30th, 2017

Hyenas! Giant mallets! Puns! Harley Quinn’s always been larger than life, which means that you’re going to want to see her latest movie on the biggest screen possible. Fortunately, thanks to Warner Bros., DC Entertainment and Fathom Events, you can see the upcoming Batman and Harley Quinn alongside an audience of fans at a movie theater near you. The catch is that you only have one night to do it.

On August 14, 2017, movie theaters nationwide will be screening the new animated movie as part of a special cinematic event. Unless you’re one of the fortunate few who will be attending Batman and Harley Quinn’s premiere this year at San Diego Comic-Con, this Fathom theatrical screening will be your first chance to see the much anticipated new film. In addition, audiences at the screening will also be the first to see an exclusive featurette spotlighting the movie’s star, Harley Quinn.

Wait… You thought the movie’s star was Batman? You, uh, may want to keep that notion to yourself. We’d hate for Ms. Quinn to overhear.

Tickets for the screening of Batman and Harley Quinn are now on sale through the Fathom Events website, or at participating theater box offices.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation from an original story spawned by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn finds Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. the Floronic Man) embarking on an ecological quest to save the planet…and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley, as the reluctant companions face twists and turns during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.

Batman and Harley Quinn promises to be more of a throwback to the lighter Quinn romps of Timm’s iconic Batman: The Animated Series, and once again features the fan-favorite Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman. Joining him from the B:tAS days is Loren Lester as Nightwing. They’re joined by Paget Brewster as Poison Ivy, Kevin Michael Richardson as the Floronic Man and Melissa Rauch of Big Bang Theory fame as the irrepressible Harley Quinn.

If you’d like to learn more about Batman and Harley Quinn, we suggest watching DC All Access’s recent interview with Timm. And if you can’t make the screening, don’t worry. Batman and Harley Quinn will be available on Digital HD on August 15 and will land on Blu-ray and DVD on August 29.
