Gotham City moved to the West Coast for one night.

Los Angeles lit up its City Hall with the Bat-Signal to honor Adam West, the actor who starred in the 1960s TV series “Batman.”

West died June 9 at the age of 88.

The celebration drew hundreds to see the iconic light shine on the wall at City Hall on Thursday night. Some dressed in costumes, and the Batmobile was on display.

“Like you, we all spent many hours in front of the TV, same bat time, same bat channel,” L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti told The Associated Press. “There will never be another Batman like Adam West and there will never be another Adam West.”

West, who also supplied the voice for Mayor Adam West in Fox’s animated “Family Guy” series, will be honored by the show Sunday.
