Los Angeles lights up City Hall to honor Adam West

The City Hall in Los Angeles was surrounded on Thursday night by fans of the late Adam West. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck held a ceremony to memorialize the actor, and then lit up City Hall with the Bat Signal. The Mayor led fans in a sign-along of the 60’s Batman show theme. While a good part of the crowd sang along, other fans honked horns from their cars when the signal lit up, and there was a lot of cheering from the crowd in general. Here’s a video of the full ceremony, for those of you who want to see it. If you want to get straight to it, skip ahead to the 9:48 mark to see the signal lit:
