Culture notes: Leon, Guy cast in ‘Fool for Love’; AMC Stonecrest to open metro’s 6th Imax

THEATER
Leon, Guy in ‘Love’
Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company has made a late casting change for “Fool for Love,” opening May 13 for a four-week run at Balzer Theater at Herren’s downtown, but the troupe is hardly bringing in the B-team. Leon himself and Jasmine Guy will star in Sam Shepard’s intense relationship drama directed by Todd Kreidler. Because of his busy directing schedule, including a Broadway run of “The Mountaintop” with Samuel L. Jackson and Halle Berry later this year, Leon’s acting turns are increasingly rare. www.truecolorstheatre.org/foolforlove. HOWARD POUSNER

MOVIES
Stonecrest gets Imax
Metro Atlanta will claim its sixth Imax screen when the AMC Stonecrest 16 in Lithonia opens one on April 29 with “Fast Five: The Imax Experience.” Imax conversions have been on the rise as Hollywood continues to digitally remaster major releases — such as the upcoming “Thor” (May 6), “Cars 2″ (June 24) and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ (July 15) — for the larger screens and more immersive viewing experience of Imax. Other metro Imaxes include: Regal Mall of Georgia 20, Buford; Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Regal Atlantic Station 16, AMC Southlake 24, Atlanta; and AMC Barrett Commons 24, Kennesaw.
