Pandora’s Box and Euro Media Forum are celebrating 75 years of Batman with a themed event.

The Batman mythos has always appealed to the hero in all of us. As the story goes it was a time primed for super heroes and one city needed a fearless guardian.

Born out of the rich and dark atmosphere of pulp fiction, Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s Batman swung onto the comic book pages in 1939 and has since enthralled generations of comic fans, while confronting a barrage of villains, mentoring a series of sidekicks and saving Gotham City time and time again.

Hosted by The Joker and Harley Quinn, two of Batman’s most cele-brated villains, the event will unlock little known nuggets about the Caped Crusader’s origins, exploits and how the Dark Knight’s legacy has become immortalised in TV and film. This will be followed by a Batman quiz where the audience will have the opportunity to win prizes.

After the talk, there will be a screening of Legends of the Knight, a documentary film that tells the true stories of individuals who are inspired to become real-life heroes because of their childhood love of Batman.

Members of the audience will also be treated with a Batman memorabilia exhibition at the cinema.

The event is being organised in collaboration with Pandora’s Box, Graphic Novels Library Malta, Sci- Fi Con 2015 and Giotto restaurant.

The event takes place on Friday at 5.30pm at St James Cavalier Cinema, Valletta. To book a seat send an e-mail to
