Holy Batman! Visiting the Batmobiles and it didn’t cost a thing!

Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon something fun and entertaining you weren’t looking for in the first place? And isn’t it even better if it doesn’t cost one cent!  That’s what we found last month when we read a little notice in the Los Angeles Times about a FREE exhibit at L.A. Live’s Event Deck to celebrate the Blu-Ray release of The Dark Knight Rises.

Once again, we were curious, so off we went, and we were not disappointed! The exhibit included costumes and props from films in the Dark Knight Trilogy as well as all seven Batmobiles, including the one from the Adam West television series.

For anyone interested, the dresses worn by Maggie Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are incredibly tiny. I just thought you might like to know that. And the Batman costumes are incredibly detailed , suggesting a very imposing figure.

The exhibit was certainly mood-inducing with low, dramatic lighting and the emotionally power-packed movie soundtrack pumping throughout the exhibit with a reverberating intensity.

The vehicles were beautiful, and certainly not just props. These were THE Batmobiles!

I need to repeat this–it was a first-class exhibit and it was open and free to the public. It makes me wonder what else is out there to enjoy and we just don’t pay attention!

Perhaps this will encourage you take a look through the local newspaper this weekend and see what you find in your own city..there are usually so many interesting events, exhibits and offerings to choose from, and all the better when you find something that doesn’t impose an entrance fee.

If you’re flexible, there’s always something interesting.

We’re ready for our weekend exhale and of course we have another field trip planned. I’ll tell you about that next week, but now it’s your turn to plan your own adventure!  Enjoy your weekend, and I hope you’ll share your plans with me, too! I enjoy vicarious adventures when I’m resting in between my own!
