This is it. The film we've been anxiously anticipating for four years. The long awaited conclusion to one of the most successful and striking trilogies of all time. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

To commemorate this auspicious event, we are once again partnering with Bat Conservation International to bring you the ULTIMATE DARK KNIGHT ADVENTURE, that will allow a select group of DARK KNIGHT RISES ticket holders the opportunity to tour Natural Bridge Caverns and Bracken Cave, home to the world's largest bat colony.   Guests will also enjoy a delectable dinner and drinks prepared by award-winning chef Trish Eichelberger as a part of the experience.

Read on for all the details!



Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in partnership with Bat Conservation International invite you to join us before the midnight premiere of DARK KNIGHT RISES for a totally unique outdoor adventure that will include a tour of the Natural Bridge Caverns and visitation to the grounds of Bracken Cave to observe the emergence of millions of bats spiraling into the evening sky on their nightly insect hunt.  It is believed the Bracken bats represent the largest concentration of mammals on Earth and their flight is truly a once-in-a-lifetime sight to behold.

Following the cavern tour and bat observation, our guests will enjoy a Latin-American themed meal inspired by these remarkable mammals’ own favorite foods (plenty of fresh fruits and veggies of course!)

The evening will conclude when we return to Austin via shuttle for the piece-de-resistance - the midnight premiere of DARK KNIGHT RISES at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane.
