On Thursday night, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck will light Batman’s Bat-signal at Los Angeles City Hall’s historic Spring Street Steps. A number of “surprise Bat-guests” will also be in attendance to mark the occasion.
The ceremony will be open to the public, and fans are encouraged to don their best Batman gear (and the handy utility belts West’s portrayal made famous) for the occasion.

Through West’s Twitter account, his family said that they were touched by the tribute from the city of Los Angeles.
We're so touched by this. Hope to see you there. https://t.co/I6mZBFfrdW
