The Coliseum brings Saving Faith to the community in response to requests it has received from local movie goers. “We have lots of requests from lots of folks,” Brad Carr, Graceland’s Director of Student Activities/Conference and Events who manages the theater, said. “Among them are folks that wish we had matinees, alternative nights, independent films, and more ‘family-friendly movies.’ So…this movie is all of the above!”
Saving Faith revolves around Faith Scott and her Uncle Donny. Faith is the Executive Director of the Ritz Theater in the small Tennessee town of Clinton. After years of struggle to keep the doors open it looks like it might be time to shut them for good. In one last ditch effort to keep the theater alive, Faith and Uncle Donny look to put together a big Christmas show – in June. Using connections that Faith knows nothing about, Uncle Donny is able to book a big time headliner for the show – Vince Gill and Amy Grant.
Peter Marsh is a local business man in Clinton who has been waiting for the Ritz to go under so he can buy it cheap from the bank and sell it to a big time developer. When he hears about the show, he pulls out all the stops to make sure the show does not go on.
Uncle Donny, Faith, and their friends and family pull together to make sure that they have done everything in their power to keep the doors to the Ritz Theater open, but can they succeed?
“With a favorable response from the community, we hope to be able to expand the movie options and show times in the future,” Carr said.
The film will be shown as a Sunday matinee on February 12th and 19th at 2 p.m. and again on February 21st (Tuesday evening) at 7:00 p.m. at the Coliseum Theater, 100 North Maple Street, Lamoni. Saving Faith is a faith based film appropriate for general audiences. Regular admission prices will be charged. It runs for 88 minutes.
