Despite Gotham City being located closer to New York than Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles today celebrated the life of actor Batman Adam West with a memorial event which saw the Bat-signal lit, projected against LA's City Hall.

West passed away last Friday at the age of 88 following a battle with leukemia. 

Everyday citizens were invited to join Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck as they lit the Bat-signal.

 

The Bat-signal has been a longtime fixture in Batman TV shows, movies, and comics - a giant spotlight used by the Gotham City police department to summon the caped crusader when the people of Gotham need him.

Batman: The Movie screens this coming Saturday night on SBS VICELAND at 8:30pm. Double episodes of the series begin Friday July 21st at 6:30pm on SBS VICELAND. Of course, if you aren't inclined to watch the show at the SAME BAT TIME and on the SAME BAT CHANNEL, you'll be able to watch both the movie and the series after they air on SBS ON DEMAND.
