Film and Theology | The Dark Knight Rises

“Maybe it’s time we all stop trying to outsmart the truth and let it have its day…”

In 2005, Director Christopher Nolan introduced us to the city of man, Gotham City. He focused on one of its residents, who longed to defy the corruption and sin he saw plaguing his city. This man would become a symbol for the city that both provided hope for his friends, and terrified his enemies. He would go on to become a scapegoat for the city, bearing the sins of one of its “white knights”. Now in Nolan’s final nod at Gotham, we see a city in need of more than a symbol, a city in need of more than someone who will bear their sins, but someone who must now embody the sacrifice needed to grant them mercy in the face of death. Join us Friday night, February 8th, as we watch and discuss The Dark Knight Rises.

The Dark Knight Rises is rated PG-13 for “intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality, and language,” and childcare will not be provided. Free popcorn, candy, coke, and mucho more will be on hand though, so don’t miss the rising of Film and Theology!
