Noah (by Sight & Sound)

In theatres April 14, 20 & 22 only!

With a catastrophic storm on its way, Noah is given a monumental task: build a boat big enough to save mankind from a flood that will cover the entire earth.  Seen by more than 5 million people live on stage, Sight & Sound’s landmark production sets sail into movie theaters this April for a special nationwide event. Filmed in front of a live audience, NOAH takes you on history’s best-known voyage as you board the enormous ark—along with two of every kind of animal! Gather with people across the country as this extraordinary Bible story comes to life on the big screen, for three days only. www.noahevent.com/canada

 

Breakthrough

Opens in theatres Wednesday, April 17.

Breakthrough is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and director Roxann Dawson, adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (Seven Pounds) from Joyce Smith’s own book, Breakthrough is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle. www.breakthroughmovie.com.
