The IU Cinema will screen a 15th anniversary showing of “Constantine” produced by IU alum Michael Uslan at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Uslan will sign copies of his autobiography “The Boy Who Loved Batman: a Memoir” from 5:30-6:30 p.m. before the film and will participate in a Q&A discussion after the screening.

Based on the DC Comics “Hellblazer” graphic novels, “Constantine” tells the story of John Constantine who has, quite literally, been to hell and back. Constantine (Keanu Reeves) teams up with policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) to investigate the murder of her twin sister, and the duo is taken through a mysterious world of angels and demons in modern-day Los Angeles.

In addition to “Constantine,” Uslan holds a slew of production credits that include the “Batman” films and “Joker,” which recently received 11 Academy Award nominations. Uslan earned his bachelor's, master's, and J.D. from IU and is an professor of practice in the Media School.

Tickets are $4 and can be purchased online up to one hour before the screening.
