All proceeds from tickets sales at the premiere of BRIGHAM CITY will
go directly to benefit the Utah Foster Care Foundation.

Utah. Utah's Lieutenant Governor Olene Walker has also been invited
to attend to show the state government's support of the Foster Care
Free events open to the public surrounding the premiere include a

The free concert will start at 6 p.m. outside the Megaplex 17 at

a few available at the Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons. For additional
details call 801-304-4577.
The Utah Foster Care Foundation, which will benefit from the
premiere, is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to
recruit, train, and retain foster care families. Since its inception
in 1999, the Foundation has helped increase the number of foster care
families in Utah by over 25%.
BRIGHAM CITY tells the story of a small, fictional Utah town that is
rocked to the core when a stranger is found murdered near her car.
Dutcher plays the county sheriff who is also a Mormon bishop in the
sleepy town. Brown plays his eager young deputy.
Anticipation surrounding the release of the next "Mormon Film" has
been high. The filmmaker has been tight-lipped as to the content of
the film, only revealing that the plot centers around a murder that
occurs in the picturesque town, shattering its tranquility and
testing the limits of its faith. Last week the MPAA gave BRIGHAM
CITY a PG-13 rating, heightening the rumors and attention swirling
around the release.
