This is pretty cool. The Batsignal is shining on Downtown’s Highmark building to welcome Warner Bros. and the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises to Pittsburgh. Christopher Nolan will be filming his final Batman movie in Pittsburgh for about a month. If you live in Pittsburgh, or are willing to make the trip, you can be part of a major action scene on August 6th. There will be a press conference tomorrow at noon with Christopher Nolan, Chrisian Bale, producer Emma Thomas, and executive producer Kevin De La Noy. I’ll have video from the press conference as soon as it shows up online. For now, check out one more picture of the Batsignal after the break.

Update 07/28/11: George from Lightwave International (the company behind last night’s awesome laser show) sent in even better photos, including a behind the scenes shot. Check them out after the break.
