MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The filmmaker who reimagined Batman in the beloved Dark Knight trilogy will be in Minnesota this spring to talk about his films as part of a Walker Art Center anniversary celebration.

Director Christopher Nolan, known for “Memento” and “Inception”, as well as his work with Bruce Wayne, is the focus of the 25th anniversary of the Walker’s Dialogue and Retrospective series, the museum announced Tuesday.

On May 5, the English director will sit opposite chief Variety film critic Scott Foundas to discuss his work before an audience at the museum. Tickets for the event cost $30, with a $5 discount for Walker members, students and seniors. They go on sale for the general public on April 21.

In the days following the dialogue, the museum will screen a retrospective of all Nolan’s feature films. The retrospective is titled “Christopher Nolan: Moving Through Time.”

Some of the screenings – such as the May 7 screening of “Following” and the May 14 screening of “The Prestige” – will be free. The others will cost $9.

The screening of the Dark Knight trilogy will take place on the weekend of May 22-24, with one film screening each day. Tickets for those films cost $20.

Retrospective screening tickets go on sale Tuesday at 11 a.m.

As part of the 25th anniversary celebration of the dialogue series, the museum will also feature a special gallery space where guests can view excepts from the Walker’s past dialogues. Over the years, the series has presented the work of innovative filmmakers such as the Coen brothers, Steve McQueen and Ang Lee.

The special dialogue gallery will be part of the museum’s exhibition “Art at the Center: 75 Years of Walker Collections.”
