Warner Bros. Pictures on Tuesday announced Christopher Nolan's legendary Dark Knight Trilogy—Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises—will return to theaters to celebrate Batman's 80th birthday. Tickets are set to go on sale on Wednesday, March 13, at 9 a.m. PT.

The special engagement will show the movies in IMAX in five cities, starting on March 30 at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk in Hollywood, California. Nolan will also be in attendance to moderate a Q&A session.

"Christopher Nolan broke ground with the Dark Knight trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today's audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen," said Jeff Goldstein of Warner Bros. Pictures.

The trilogy will also be shown on April 13 at the AMC Lincoln Square in NYC and the AMC Metreon in San Francisco, following by showing on April 20 at Cinesphere Ontario Palace, Toronto and the IMAX Theater at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis.

The April showings will feature footage of the Q&A from March 30. "To have the added privilege of hearing Chris's insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," Goldstein said.
