For a little while Thursday night, a California town will look a bit like Gotham City.
In tribute to well-known “Batman” actor and Hollywood legend Adam West, the mayor and police chief of Los Angeles will light up the iconic Bat-signal and project it onto Los Angeles City Hall. The ceremony starts at 9 p.m. Pacific Time. Fans are welcome to show up in costume, according to the Los Angeles Times.
In the “Batman” comics, movies and television shows, the Gotham City Police Department shines a spotlight known as the Bat-signal into the sky to summon the caped crusader.
West, star of the 1960s campy “Batman” TV series, died June 9 after a brief battle with leukemia, the paper said. He was 88.
