The Aragon Theatre is a movie theatre in Gotham City that became infamous for being the location where Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne lost their lives.


In 1981, billionaire philanthropist Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha took their only son Bruce to see a viewing of The Mark of Zorro.

After leaving the theater and taking a shortcut underneath an elevated railroad bridge, the three were held at gunpoint by a mugger who shot Thomas and Martha before fleeing the scene. Bruce stayed with his parents' bodies until the police arrived.



  • This is the only time in cinematic history that the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne takes place after the Waynes attended a viewing of The Mark of Zorro.
  • In the DC Comics mainstream universe, the Waynes were killed near the Monarch Theater, however, this has presumably been changed for the new DCEU movie mainstream.
