Los Angeles Premiere of Batam: Gotham by Gaslight Announced

The latest addition to Warner Bros.’ highly acclaimed DC animated films, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, premiered to great reviews during the “DC in DC” event last weekend. But there’s another chance to view the film in theaters for those of us on West coast, as the Paley Center for Media has scheduled a screening on Monday, February 5th. The producers and members of the voice cast will also be at the Los Angeles premiere for red carpet media interviews as well as a post-screening panel discussion. 

A limited number of tickets are being made available to the public on a first come, first served basis – and they’re free! If Batman: Gotham by Gaslight is something you’re dying to see, and I know it’s on my to-do list, then RSVP by emailing GaslightLA@gmail.com to see if you can score big. Said RSVP emails should include (1) your name, (2) a valid email address, and (3) the number of tickets being requested. Please keep the number of tickets to 4 or less per entry, and Batman will know if you try to enter more than once.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is something of an alternate universe, based on a 1989 graphic novel of the same name that pitted the Dark Knight against Jack the Ripper. In order to solve this crisis, Police Commissioner James Gordon calls on Batman to put his detective skills to the test. To my delight, Selina Kyle acts as his confidant and partner in this matter. The original story was actually DC’s first Elseworld publication, and made great use of the Industrial Revolution as a backdrop.

Bruce Greenwood (Batman: Under The Red Hood, Star Trek) reprises his role as the voice of the Bruce Wayne while Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter, Limitless) makes her DC debut as the voice of Selina Kyle. They are joined by the likes of Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls, Justice League Unlimited) as James Gordon, Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Merlin) as Alfred Pennyworth, and Yuri Lowenthal (Batman Unlimited, Young Justice) as Harvey Dent – as well as many other notable actors playing iconic DC characters.

Be warned that the film is rated R for “some violence,” and anyone under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you are one of the lucky ones who gets to see Batman: Gotham by Gaslight early, then be sure to tweet about it using the hashtag #GothamByGaslight and make all your friends jealous.

The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles is located at 465 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, and the screening will begin at 7:00 pm. But if you miss out, fear not! Batman: Gotham By Gaslight will be distributed February 6, 2018 on Blu-ray and DVD, not to mention that it’s available digitally starting January 23, 2018.
