Play Movie


Rating: CLUB, 18+
Release Date: 17/03/1992
Director: Tim Burton

It's Christmas and we are using that as an excuse to make our argument for Batman Returns as one of the most underrated, weirdest, and flat-out entertaining superhero movies ever made. The film that truly explores the weird instincts and peculiar peccadilloes that might lead people to dress in rubber suits and hang out on rooftops and alleyways. A true Freudian freak fest of a superhero movie and also one of the strangest Christmas movies you've ever seen.
Hope you can join us for drinks in the bar and a pre-show of some of our favorite Christmas themed trailers and clips, it'll be a weird one.
