CHARLOTTE - If you have seen the Batmobile driving around Charlotte, no, you’re not hallucinating.
Lenny Robinson, a Batman impersonator from Maryland, is in town promoting “Legends of the Knight,” with Southeast Psych.
The movie is about how people can find strength and resilience through the character of Batman. It also highlights children who have cancer and use Batman as a hero for strength through their chemotherapy and healing processes.
Robinson travels to children’s hospitals around the country to visit children as Batman. He drove from Maryland to Charlotte in the Batmobile for this visit.
On Wednesday, Robinson will have a meet and greet at the Hampton Inn in Phillips Place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. with Clinician Frank Gaskill. Gaskill works at Southeast Psych, and played an integral role in this event.
Robinson will visit Levine Children’s Hospital Thursday morning with his Batmobile.
Southeast Psych is listed as an executive producer for the film. They wanted to bring the film to Charlotte because it lined up with their missions and values.
Southeast Pysch helps patients focus on finding strengths instead of concentrating on weaknesses, and has superhero mannequins, such as Batman, in their office.
On Thursday night there will be a photo opportunity for film goers before “Legends of the Knight” shows at 7 p.m. Batman and his Batmobile will be at Epicentre at 6 p.m.
After the film there will be a question and answer session with Brett Culp, the film’s director. Tickets are still available for purchase, all proceeds go towards charity. For more information about the event and film, click here.
