God's Army Spreading Across Country

CANADA - They promised us if we liked it, they would keep it. God'a Army premiered in Alberta on 29 September 2000 with the assurance that if there was sufficient interest in the movie, it would stay longer than the standard week.

Not only was there enough interest at the five theatres in which it premiered to extend the playing times, but there was enough that a second theatre in Edmonton had to be opened to accommodate the extra traffic.

Because it has done so well, Zion Films has announced plans to expand into theatres in metropolitan areas of British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec.

Micah Young, screening co-ordinator for Zion Films, in an interview with LDSCaNews, announced that limited screening of the film will be shown in Vancouver and Victoria theatres on the morning of Saturday, 14 October, 2000, to community and church leaders and those interested in seeing a pre-release of the film.

Those interested in obtaining placement on the screening list can contact Zion Films at or (800)566-6119. Please be sure to indicate which screening you will be attending, and remember that passes will be limited to two per family.

Public showings will run for a week beginning 20 October 2000 in theatres in Surrey and Victoria. If local demand is high, the length of time showing in these theatres may be extended.

Theatre Locations: The Grande, Surrey Cineplex Odeon Victoria, Victoria

According to Young, showings in other provinces depends primarily on three factors: the number of members in an area, how well the film does in previous areas and whether the Canadian distributor is able to locate theatres in which to show the film.

Red Sky Entertainment, which distributes films in Canada for Zion Films, is currently looking for theatres in the Brampton and Toronto, ON, areas. Young anticipates showings to begin around the 27th of this month in those cities.

Depending on how well the show does in British Columbia and Ontario, Young is confident that it could open in Montreal theatres by December.
