Independent Faith-Based Film Screening at Cox Capitol Theatre
Events, Families

The faith-based independent film of the season for all movie-goers interested in family-friendly entertainment is the musical, Church; an inspiring story of faith, redemption and forgiveness.

Church chronicles the everyday experiences in today’s African American church, a NewTown Macon news release says. 

Produced by Gospel Jam, LLC, the film stars television film veterans Darius McCrary, who plays the “prodigal son” Daniel Rhodes; Joseph C. Phillips as the unforgettable Deacon Melvin Childs; Art Evans as Pastor Jones, Sam Sarpong as Jay; and features gospel greats Daryl Coley as Deacon Cole; Blanche McAllister Dykes as Mother Henry, and Nicoe Potts as Evangelist Green.

“If there’s one thing we can all relate to, it's church,” noted Tommy Ross, managing partner of Gospel Jam, LLC and executive producer.  “Everyone has a story about the church they attend. What we have done is taken those funniest stories, blended them with some original music and unforgettable characters to create a cinematic experience that will not be forgotten.”

Directed by Cory King and Foster Corder, this faith-based film features uplifting, spirit-filled songs from one of the most inspirational soundtracks ever recorded.  Movie-goers will have a hard time staying in their seats, as they listen to some of gospel’s greatest sing HIS praise!

S.T.O.N.E Academy in Macon Georgia, will host two screenings of the film on Monday, January 17.  The first screening will be a matinee held at the historic Douglass Theatre, 355 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., at 3:30 p.m. 

The second showing will be held at the Cox Capitol Theatre at 7:30 p.m. 

Both screenings are sponsored by NewTown Macon in a spirit of unity and in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Dr. King once said, I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” 

“We are excited about hosting the premiere screening of Church," noted Pastor Tony Lowden, Executive Director of the S.T.O.N.E Academy program as well as Ministry staff at Lundy Chapel.  “This provides us with an opportunity to reach and minister to our parishioners and non-church goers in an enlightening and entertaining way.”
