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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
