The Aragon Theatre is a movie theater located in Gotham City's Park Row, infamously known as Crime Alley.[1]


Assassination of Thomas and Martha Wayne

One day in 1981, Thomas and Martha Wayne took their son Bruce to the Aragon Theatre to see The Mark of Zorro.[2] Upon leaving the theater, both Thomas and Martha were murdered by mugger Joe Chill in front of their young son. The sight of how crime can leave such devastating impacts on people's lives inspired Bruce to dedicate himself to combating it as the masked vigilante Batman.[3]
