BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore is celebrating the opening of the new Superman movie and the museum's comic book exhibit with a bar mitzvah party for the superhero.

The party at the museum will be Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Superman, who was created 75 years ago by two Jewish artists, will be there, and there'll be music, dancing, food and a special bar mitzvah cake.

The museum says guests who bring their opening weekend movie ticket stub will get a discount on admission. "Man of Steel" opened in theaters Friday.

The museum's exhibit "ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938 - 1950" opened in January and runs through Aug. 18.
