I don’t know why, but this has me really choked up.
It was announced today that the bat-signal will shine one final time for the late Adam West who died Saturday at age 88.
Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck invite the public down to City Hall (200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012) to celebrate the people’s Batman.

Tributes have poured in, including from the TV show’s Robin, actor Burt Ward, who wrote in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter that the star never felt like he’d been held back by playing the superhero.
“People always asked Adam if he felt like he’d been typecast, if Batman had hurt his career. But I know he loved it. He loved being a star,” wrote Ward.
For fans who can’t make it to the ceremony, West’s family is encouraging people to donate to the Adam West Memorial Fund for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Donations can also be made to Camp Rainbow Gold, an Idaho-based charity for children battling cancer.
