Tickets on Sale Now For This Exclusive Feature Event, From Fathom
Events and Network Entertainment

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–An insightful new feature-length documentary celebrating the life and
work of the late actor Heath Ledger brings a new understanding of
the man behind his public image. Ledger was one of the most gifted
Hollywood talents in a generation, who appeared in a string of seminal
films including the culturally defining “Brokeback Mountain,” and in
“The Dark Knight,” for which he won a posthumous Academy Award®.
However, Ledger was so much more than the characters he depicted on
screen, and audiences will come to know that side of him as well during
a special cinema event.

Presented by Fathom Events in partnership with Network Entertainment and
co-produced by Spike TV, the feature-length version of “I
Am Heath Ledger
” will play in U.S. movie theaters for one night
on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. local time. This special cinema
presentation will include an additional segment exclusive to movie
theater audiences, featuring never-before-seen footage of interviews
with Heath’s family and friends, sharing their personal stories about
and memories of the legendary actor and artist.

Following its cinema debut, Spike TV will show an edited version of the
documentary on May 17.

Tickets for “I Am Heath Ledger” are available online at www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in 300 select movie theaters through Fathom’s
Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater
locations visit the Fathom Events website
(theaters and participants are subject to change).

Heath Ledger was a versatile artist whose talents spanned a broad
array of mediums, including a love for photography, music and directing.
He often rejected the trappings of Hollywood, instead creating an
environment for himself which fostered his own passions and those of his
friends and family. “I Am Heath Ledger” illustrates Ledger’s
artistic output through both clips of his iconic film performances, as
well as through the images he captured as a photographer and
videographer. Extravagant in gesture and in action, it was this energy
and unshakable willingness to take risks that instilled such a deep love
and affection in those people closest to him.

“It’s truly an honor to partner with Network Entertainment for this
fascinating and inspiring feature, documenting the too-short life of
Heath Ledger, one of this generation’s greatest talents,” Fathom Events
CEO John Rubey said. “We are thrilled to help bring this event to big
screens nationwide.”

“We are excited that audiences will get to experience ‘I Am Heath
’ on the big screen,” said Network Entertainment’s Derik
Murray, the film’s producer and co-director with Adrian Buitenhuis. “The
beauty of Heath’s work and the never-before-seen footage that Heath
filmed himself throughout his life will make for a magical theatrical
