Holy Expensive Movie Ticket!

The 44th annual Chicago International Film Festival, Cinema/Chicago, and Warner Brothers have teamed up to treat Chicagoans to an advance screening of the newest Batman installment, The Dark Knight. Well, more specifically, you will have to treat yourself, since tickets to the gala event are $150 apiece.

The Dark Knight Gala will feature a tribute to director Christopher Nolan, and dinner following the IMAX screening, shown two days before the movie’s official release on July 18th. Proceeds will support Cinema/Chicago’s Educational Outreach program and this fall's Chicago International Film Festival.

We reviewed the movie trailer, and there is something … different about Christian Bale, although we can’t quite put our finger on what.
