I was 20 yrs old when I saw it on the big screen for the 1st time.
A couple friends & I caught the midnight session then hanged out in the city for 4 hours after waiting for the buses to run.
It was a fantastic night blown away by Burton's imagination then walking the city afterwards imagining how real it could've been.

I saw it in the cinema. I was around six years old when it came out, and I remember the queue being as long as the street when my dad brought me to see it. They had large cardboard standees of Batman all over the lobby, and then before the movie started they shone a bat-signal on to the curtains in front of the screen.

Awesome, awesome memory.

I was also a 20 year old in 1989, and I went to the first Batman 10 times that year. Though Nolan's trilogy would prove to be the definite version of the character, I was just so glad it was a film that took Batman seriously, and the campy 1960's TV series was buried at last in the public's mind.

I was 3 when that movie came out, so I don't remember if I saw it in the theater or not. I do remember it was this movie and Batman: the Animated Series that made me fall in love with Batman.

Yeh I was 12 when I saw it. I remember being a little disappointed but I still had faith in the new direction of batman on film. I still think Burton was the only one to capture to spooky side of Batman and that's what I really liked about the movie. I like Burton's look but Nolans stories. Batman TAS in the 90's really used Burton's look and in my opinion, was the first real success to bring Batman to television.

But to answer you're question, yeh I watched it on the big screen smile

How are Nolan's films particularly better? The 1989 film seems like a much better Batman film to me. The Dark Knight is a good fim that just so happens to be a Baman film. There's nothng wrong with that, but the 1989 film sems much more of 'A Batman film".
