LA became Gotham City Thursday night as the Batsignal glowed at City Hall in honor of late Batman actor Adam West. Hundreds of fans, some in costume, cheered as Mayor Eric Garcetti and police Chief Charlie Beck switched on the iconic signal and splashed a yellow oval with a stylized bat silhouette high up on the wall of City Hall. West, who played the Caped Crusader in the campy TV series, died last week at 88, following a battle with leukemia.On display was a red Batphone like the one Gotham City's Commissioner James Gordon used to chat with Batman in the TV series.West's wife and children attended the event, Garcetti said.Katie Aiani said she had idolized West.
