#BATMAN NEWS - #BATKID BEGINS Official Movie Trailer and Poster! #BatkidBegins


It’s November 15, 2013. Twenty-five thousand people descend on San Francisco. Online, two billion others join in. This massive crowd erupts with a collective display of public emotion rarely seen. With a Beatlemania-like intensity, people take to the streets and screens. They are all united to fulfill the wish of 5-year-old Miles Scott, who is recovering from Leukemia. It is his dream to become Batkid and save Gotham City. "Batkid Begins" chronicles the making of the overnight international phenomenon that is Batkid. 

The film reveals what happens when an event goes unintentionally viral. Will the San Francisco Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfill its mission to help Miles reclaim his childhood after battling disease for more than half his short life? Or will the event itself spiral out of control; consume the organization, scare Miles and shut down an entire city?

Audiences will come along as Patricia Wilson, executive director of the San Francisco Make-A-Wish chapter, and her team - in true superhero spirit - tackle the monster they created. 

Before Batkid, the largest crowd Patricia had organized was 300. She posts an RSVP on her website. Immediately 7,000 sign up. Soon the number is growing at 1,000 people a day, overwhelming Patricia’s team. Will the young boy’s dream 
get lost in a nightmare? 

Featuring exclusive illuminating interviews with all the main players including executives at Twitter and Apple, the film reveals surprising truths about what happens when a nerve is touched in our digital society. 

The film looks at the “why” of this phenomenon. Why did the intense outpouring of spontaneous support for a five-year-old reverberate around the world? In the end, the film leaves audiences to decide; did Miles need the world for inspiration? Or did the world need Miles?




In select theaters on June 26th, 2015!

#BATMAN HISTORY - Bruno's Batcave 1966 KXOK Radio Spot


Listen down below for the KXOK Radio Spot for "Bruno's Batcave", 6324 West Florissant, St. Louis, MO. circa 1966.

Johnny Rabbitt and George Edick, along with another old friend, Jim Brown, came up with a plan to convert what had been part of an old Bowling Alley in the basement of the Club Imperial into an atmospheric, music-driven club for teens called "Bruno's Batcave"!

"BRUNO'S BATCAVE" became a world unto itself! Jim Brown was the first Manager,and Johnny King signed on as Assistant Manager. Since Johnny Rabbitt's KXOK shift was 7:00 to Midnight, he needed friends he could count on to keep things running smoothly, and to solve any problems that could come up... and to watch out for his interests in Bruno's Batcave opened in the Spring of 1966. (Ernie Cummings, who managed The Klassmen, became Manager when Jim Brown left on October 21, 1966.)

"Bruno's" was turned into a dark, caverness place. With a "Bat Tunnel" for the entrance and black walls with 'Bat Murals' all around it was the ULTIMATE Club for teens to "see and be seen in"! 

They had some of the greatest local bands that you could want: Steve Cummings and The Klassmen, with Gayle McCormick, was pretty much the House Band.

To the mix were added: Walter Scott of The Guise, The Aardvarks, Barry Ebeling and The Invaders, Hoss and The Lords, etc...

PLUS, with the help of some local Record Promo guys, they had some National groups that would come through occasionally like The Cryan Shames, The Blues Magoos. Other featured Stars that they had at the "Batcave" included B.J. Thomas, and the talented Billy Preston.
