The top pick family and redemptive movie in theaters for the second week of April is Noah. This is a Fathom Event produced by Sight & Sound Theatres®. Audiences will travel with Noah as he follows and fulfills God’s command amidst seemingly impossible odds and the scrutiny of onlookers. Viewers will experience this as it comes to life in great scale as Noah leads live animals inside the Ark, towering four stories above the stage! What audiences will see on the big screen has been filmed before a live audience, who escape the treacherous flood as they became immersed in this incredible production. This exclusive stage-to-screen production includes a behind-the-scenes look at the amazing history of Sight & Sound Theatres®, including their locations and stage shows, which have been by more than 25 million visitors from around the world!

Noah is also one of three titles from Fathom Events distributed to churches via the Fathom Affinity Network (FAN) in partnership with Faith Content Network, LLC (FCN), in addition to their individual theatrical runs in cinemas across the country.

The three Fathom Events include the following; Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy, Noah, and The Pilgrim’s Progress. More details, including participating churches and ticketing, are available at . Fathom also plans to add more titles to this network. 

Fathom Events and Faith Content Network, LLC has announced the launch of FAN with the mission of bringing top faith and inspirational content to nearly 800 churches nationwide. Because FAN reaches Fathom’s current exhibition partner locations, this network of churches offers a way to reach underserved audiences across the country.

Fathom Events is now working with churches to bring their special faith and family events to their facilities and communities.  This is an opportunity for churches to provide special screenings of first-run faith and family movies.  

It is free for a church to host a FAN event, once they are approved and eligible. The FAITH CONTENT NETWORK is a network of churches that presents new, faith-driven, theatrical events available in tandem with their exclusive Fathom event. Churches no longer have to wait months after a movie releases in theaters to show the film in their church!

Churches can now host faith and family, Christ-centered content including feature films, documentaries, concerts, and more – at the same time they are being shown in theaters. Programming will be ticketed events and eligible churches can share in the box office receipts.

All of the films are broadcast via Simulcast, so there is no requirement for the purchase of any special equipment for a host. All a church host needs is the following: a good, strong internet connection in order to stream the simulcast in real-time, a computer, and input to a viewing device (projector, television, receiver, etc.).

Churches that sign up to host a movie event will receive confirmation of eligibility by FCN and, once approved, receive a Digital Marketing Kit to help promote each movie event

It’s FREE to be a host site; however, FAN has limited availability and coverage restrictions for each film. By signing up to be a member of Faith Content Network, a church can be first in line to host events available in their area.  See the full line up on the Faith Content Network.
