Thanks to all who supported, promoted and attended the first Charlotte Projecting Hope Film Festival at the Arysley Cinemas on October 3rd-5th! We are still recovering from the overwhelming response as over 6,000 folks showed up to enjoy positive, redemptive films.
Wow! Quick update from the Fest.... Fans of inspirational films filled up the theaters last night - Friday, October 3rd! For those coming Saturday and Sunday...a review of the ticket process. Up to half the tickets for each movie may be secured a day or more ahead of time through the on-line ordering system at http://www.projectinghope.com/ for a five dollar service charge. Otherwise, tickets are available for free at 12:30 p.m. at the box office at Ayrsley for any films showing that day. You can get tickets for more than one movie at the window. We were blown away by Fireproof....folks we lined up by 11:30 a.m. on Friday to get tickets for the Friday night showing. Several hours before the evening showings last night, Fireproof, The Ultimate Gift, Billy:The Early Years, and The List were all "sold out"...good news and bad news! Our apologies to those who came to the theater and were not able to get it! We appreciate everyone's understanding and support of this event. More news to come.
Thanks to Robert Whitlow and Gary Wheeler of The List for sharing comments with the audience and fielding questions after the 9 p.m. show last night. Steve Taylor, producer of Second Chance, will do likewise tonight after the 9:30 p.m. Saturday showing.
