If you’re a fan of popcorn cinemas and summer blockbusters, I probably don’t need to tell you that The Dark Knight — the biggest film of 2008 — is coming out on DVD this Tuesday December 9th. If you’re planning on picking this up (and really, who isn’t?) Empire Cinemas is hosting what could possibly be the coolest DVD release event ever. Instead of giving away movie-related tie-in’s or a bonus discount, Empire is inviting you to see the movie on the big screen one last time.
Select cities throughout Canada will be hosting the event which will kick off at 9:30pm on Monday, November 7th. Traditional DVD’s will be $25 and Blu-ray’s will be $30, and you’ll have to pay the price of admission on top of that. When the movie ends at 12:01, the cinemas will place a copy of the film in your hands to take home with you.
The Dark Knight is one of those rare films that everyone should see on the big screen. Take a peek at the list of cities hosting the event and see if one is close enough to make it happen;
