Movie Night-- pass the popcorn

With the success of Fireproof exhibiting in the local churches, more are looking for movies to show. It's going to be interesting to see how this goes. I was driving in my hometown of Bedford and saw another church marquee announcing a Fireproof series. This is great.

I think churches are looking for followups. Movies can serve several different purposes in the church. Play it on a Friday or Saturday and then preach on the subject Sunday. Do it for free as an outreach to the surrounding community. Use it as the new bake sale and take up an offering or charge for tickets.

I know for The Imposter, one church is going to use it for the youth and young adults. Another church is making a big event of it. And another is showing it on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

I think this is going to increase. As the Box Office continues to break records in a downturned economy, it's obvious people are looking for an escape. The church can be a refuge, offering stories that offer hope and Truth.

Here at SFilms, we're putting together as much information as we can to help churches put on their movie night with The Imposter. From creating tickets, issuing press releases, playing trailers in your powerpoint, there's a lot that can be done to assist the church. So if your church is going to have a movie night, let me know if I can help. And pass the popcorn.
