Heath Ledger's final film is coming to the Schwartz Center for the Arts on Wednesday and Sunday. "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is directed by Terry Gilliam and features Ledger, Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell.
Millions have seen Heath Ledger’s final complete performance as the Joker in “The Dark Knight,” but not so many have seen his last time spent on film in “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.” They’ll get that chance at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 24, and Sunday, March 28, at the Schwartz Center for the Arts.
Director Terry Gilliam (“Brazil,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”) chose Ledger to play Tony, a promoter taken in by a traveling theater show. He attempts to take control of the show when he learns Doctor Parnassus has the power to make imaginations come to life.
When Ledger passed away, the director cast Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell as alternate incarnations of Ledger’s character, Tony, to fill the scenes Ledger had not yet filmed.
“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” runs 2:05 and is rated PG-13 for violent images, some sensuality, language and smoking.
Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for students, seniors 65 and older and military.
