Austin’s Night of the Bat

Adam West is in Austin, Texas today attending a truly unique and special event:  Austin’s Night of the Bat.  As home of the largest urban population of bats, Austin is throwing a one-day Bat-Extravaganza.  Mr. West is attending as the guest of honor and introduce a special screening of the original classic 1966 film Batman.  The theater?  None other than the Paramount, where the film premiered over 40 years ago.  The day continues with a host of special events, a welcome to Mr. West from the mayor, a concert, all culminating with a gathering to view the amazing 1.5 million bats emerge from under Congress bridge for their famous nightly flight.

One Response to “Austin’s Night of the Bat”

    I have visited the Adam West Fan Club page twice, each time asking if there was a way I could get Mr. West to autograph my March 11, 1968/9? issue of Life Magazine on which Batman is the cover art. I have gotten no response either time. Is someone listening out there, and can someone help me?

    Many thanks,
