- Filmosophers - 20140328 - Filmosophers

Starting Friday at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield, Son Of God. "The life story of Son Of God posterJesus is told from his humble birth, through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection." Churches who are interested in group reservations with discounted pricing please email orpheum@modernamericancinema.com

Interestingly, as reported in USA Today: "Not since The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur more than a half-century ago has the film industry bankrolled religious-themed pictures as it has this year, with four big-studio Christian films storming the multiplex, along with dozens of art-house titles." This includes Noah, (out Friday) the story of the apocalyptic flood and the man who navigated it. Directed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and starring Russell Crowe. The film I'm most anticipating is Heaven Is For Real, starring Greg Kinnear, based on the #1 New York Times best-selling non-fiction book of the same name, about a boy who has visions of heaven in a near-death experience during surgery. Whoosh, it opens April 16th. We may invite Thomas "TJ" Gates in for that show. Thomas has his own amazing story.

We'll talk about that, what we've seen (twice Oscar nominated The Grandmaster) and more on the Filmosophers Movie Talk, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings, 11:30. Peter- What are we going to do then? Jesus Christ- We are going to change the world. - Son Of God
