The Tumbler Tour Comes to Columbus! Monday, June 18, 2012

In the lead-up to the July 20 release of The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Tumbler Tour has been crisscrossing North America putting the series’ Tumbler (Batmobile) and Bat-pod (motorcycle) on display.  The tour rolled through Columbus last Wednesday, and being a Bat-fan and a native of Pittsburgh (part of TDKR was filmed there), Ken from our instrumental department had to check it out and share some photos – it also didn’t hurt that it coincided with his day off!  Enjoy!
