Stonewall, Texas – Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park continues its popular outdoor summertime movie series on Saturday, June 4, with the showing of “Batman: The Movie” starring Adam West at the LBJ Ranch near Stonewall. The film starts at dusk and will be presented on a large outdoor screen. Access to the ranch begins at 7:00 pm. A movie trivia contest will precede the film. Prizes will be given out to trivia contest winners and the best dressed superheroes.

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, refreshments, and come dressed as their favorite superhero. The program is free of charge. Entry to the LBJ Ranch is conveniently located off U.S. Highway 290 onto Ranch Road 1. Parking is available on the airstrip taxiway adjacent to the movie site.

The Johnsons enjoyed inviting guests to their ranch to show some of the biggest blockbusters of the 1960s. For modern visitors, the “Movie Under the Stars” series is a great way to enjoy timeless classics while experiencing a fun-filled night of family fun on the LBJ Ranch—just like friends of the Johnsons experienced in the 1960s and 1970s.   

This year marks the 50th anniversary of “Batman: The Movie.” The film was released in 1966 and features the Dynamic Duo facing off against the arch-villains of the United Underworld—the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, and the Catwoman—who plot to dispose of Batman and Robin and control the entire world with the help of a secret invention that instantly dehydrates people.

The LBJ Ranch airplane hangar visitor center will be open from 7 pm through the end of the film. Visitors are welcome to explore the interactive exhibits, shop the Western National Parks Association sales outlet, and use the restrooms in the building.

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park is open seven days a week from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more information on park activities call 830-868-7128, ext. 231 or 244, and visit www.nps.gov/lyjo and www.facebook.com/LBJohnsonNPS.
