Dark Knight Premier | Kellogg-Hubbard Library Fundraiser

Vermont's most well-known comic book enthusiast, Sen. Patrick Leahy, has a cameo role in the new Dark Knight film. It's nothing new for him since he was also in Batman and Robin and has lent his voice to the animated version of Batman. However, the bonus this time is that he has a line and made it into the final cut opposite Heath Ledger.

Always being good to his hometown, Leahy is turning his brief role into a fundraiser for the children's section of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier. On Saturday night, July 12th, there will be a reception (5:30pm) at the Capitol Plaza and two showings (7:15pm & 7:30pm) of Dark Knight across the street at the Capitol Theater. Tickets are $50 for the reception and $50 for the movie with the money going to the library.

You can buy tickets at the library or over the phone by calling the library (with a credit card).

Leahy's scene has shown up on YouTube and from this tiny snippet of the movie, Ledger looks fantastic as The Joker.
