Parnassus – The Man Who Wanted To Deceive The Devil
At the Studios, 9:15 p.m.

Directed by Terry “Monthy Python” Gilliam, it’s a story of good and evil, real and imagined. An old magician has made a pact with the devil in exchange for eternal life: to deliver the soul of his first descendant on his 16th birthday. For centuries, he and his traveling show traveled the cities. But the bitterest hours finally arrive and the master of the imagination must pay his debt. Besides Christopher Plummer in the lead role, the film stars Tom Waits, Lily Cole, Heath Ledger (who died during filming), Andrew Garfield, Verne Troyer, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.
