This is Dark Knight Dedication! Rufus Schell and Marcus Baker arrived at 8:30am for what’s become their Bat-tradition only to find two other fans ahead as they wait for the midnight show of The Dark Knight Rises at the Boeing IMAX Theater at Pacific Science Center in Seattle.
“I’ve done this for four years running now,” Marcus Baker tells Jill Russell of KOMONEWS.COM.
The Bremerton resident and his friend took their seats on a bench in front of the theater at 8 a.m. and haven’t moved since. Only two people managed to beat the pair to the front of the line. They got there at 6:30 a.m.
“We came for the seats,” Schell said. “I love the feeling of opening weekend when everyone’s together in the theater.”
“The crowds are electric. It’s so much fun,” Baker added.
“This movie is our generation’s Star Wars. It’s encapsulated everyone,” Schell said in his Bat-swag. He belief is so strong that he wrote his final English paper on the merits that Batman is the best story ever told. He proudly admits he received an ‘A’ on the paper.
This is the final film by Christopher Nolan but these fans are ready for more.
“If Nolan says he wants to make a movie again, I’d say ‘here’s my money,’” says Baker.
