Los Angeles will shine the Bat-Signal tonight in honor of Adam West

For one night, the city of angels will turn into Gotham.

The Bat-Signal is usually reserved for times of trouble, a call for the Caped Crusader to come out of the Batcave and defeat the villains.

But if you look up to the sky tonight in Los Angeles and see the famed signal, you won't have to fear. 

The City of Angels will honor the late, great Adam West by illuminating the Bat-Signal for those wanting to pay their respects to TV's original Batman.

Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck will preside over the ceremony. The public is welcome to attend, and will start at 9PM at City Hall

West died Friday after a short battle with leukemia. The actor was 88, and recently published a book containing self-made art, and teamed up with Burt Ward and Julie Newmar for an animated Batman movie.

West's family also encourages fans who can't attend the event tonight to donate to the Adam West Memorial Fund for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

MeTV will also pay tribute to West with programming featuring the storied actor. Starting this Saturday, June 17, at 10AM | 9C, MeTV will air seven different TV shows featuring the actor, during their regularly scheduled time slots throughout the day. 

The tribute will culminate with two episodes of Batman at 12AM | 11C and an episode of The Outer Limits at 1AM | 12C.
