The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Movie Pass Giveaway

Comments 83 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus opens in theatres at the end of this month and I have two double passes to give away.

The film screened earlier this season at the Vancouver International Film Festival and here’s what Marina from Row Three had to say in my VIFF preview post:

This was Heath Ledger’s last film and as Marina explained to me, Gilliam thought, “It was either scrap the movie or come up with some other way to finish it.” So some of Ledger’s friends were called upon to finish this in his honor. The film sees big names such as Christopher Plummer, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Colin Farrell and even Tom Waits make appearances although Marina says it’s truly Plummer’s film.

If you would like to see this film during it’s run of engagement at Cinemark Tinseltown downtown, please leave a comment on this post to enter. I will draw two winners who will each get a double pass along with some movie postcards and posters. The passes will be good for use anytime after January 4th, 2010.

Update: The contest is now closed. I just drew the winners… the first is Melissa (with the comment “It sounds like this is going to be a really great movie – really looking forward to seeing it!”) and the second is Kasza. Thank you for entering another contest!

It would the most memorable Christmas gift ever if you could offer us a chance to this remarkable film. Thank you & Merry Christmas to all ^.^

  81. ScottThursday, December 24th, 2009 — 11:47am PST

    Not many people know; this film was made by Vancouver based Infinity Features Entertainment and produced by the late (and great or infamous, depending on who you talk to) Mr. Bill Vince.

  82. Ariane CThursday, December 24th, 2009 — 1:38pm PST

    My husband and I would love to see this, esp. after having read the review in this week’s Straight. Love the trailer’s colourful scenery; looks like a dripping, psychotic dream brought to life by Terry Gilliam.

  83. MarianneThursday, December 24th, 2009 — 1:58pm PST

    I’d love to see Heath Ledger’s last film and earn free tix for this!
