The Dark Knight Rises for ECHO


Update:  Regular tickets for this special screening of The Dark Knight Rises are now sold out.  A limited number of single seat and stand by tickets are available by calling 802-864-1848 x134.

As a young boy, Senator Patrick Leahy used to love going to the library to read Batman comics.  Today, Senator Leahy still enjoys following the adventures of the Caped Crusader, and will be a guest at a special screening of The Dark Knight Rises on Sunday, July 15 at Majestic 10 Cinemas in Williston!   With your tax-deductible gift of $100 or more to ECHO, you too can attend this fantastic event.  

All proceeds from your donation support ECHO's Leahy Legacy Project, which provides long-term funding for all of ECHO's education and conservation programming including daily care for our more than 70 species of animals; ongoing curriculum development for new programs and activities; and support for our Open Door Program, which provides reduced cost admission and memberships to low income families in our community.  With your support, ECHO will reach our goal and ensure that the center remains a resource for the Lake Champlain Basin community now and in the future.

The Dark Knight Rises is the thrilling conclusion to the Dark Knight trilogy.  Set eight years after Batman took the blame for two face’s crimes, Gotham is threatened by a new villain, and the Caped Crusader must return to save the city once again. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight Rises features Christian Bale reprising his role as Gotham’s legendary crime fighter and a litany of other stars including Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard, and promises all the action and adventure of previous Dark Knight films.
