The first and only Batman: The Animated Series movie to get a theatrical release turns 20 years old this Christmas. The Blot can’t believe it’s already been 20 years since this fantastic movie hit theaters. Sadly, Mask of the Phantasm is still considered by most to be a utter flop due to its box office tally. Directed by Bruce Timm, written by Paul Dini, and featuring the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was the beginning of a near flawless run of animated Batman films and series that ended with Batman Beyond in 2001.
In honor of the film’s 20th Anniversary Mondo is throwing the film a belated birthday party with a 35mm screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz on January 7th. As part of the celebration, Mondo will be bringing two new limited edition prints by Phantom City Creative for sale at the screening! It may be time for The Blot to plan his first trip to Austin in 2014! Tickets for the screening will be available for purchase here on December 24th!
