(NEWARK, NJ) — Calling all Batman Fans! You can see a screening of Batman live in concert with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra at New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 8:00pm. Watch Tim Burton’s 1989 film (PG-13) on the big screen as the New Jersey Symphony performs Danny Elfman’s score, live.

Tickets to see Batman Live range from $39-$89 and are available for purchase online or calling 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.
