Welcome to the 2023 home of Christian Movie Central,
listing films playing in theaters either in full-run (week to week based on attendance) or limited run (one to several days)

Our focus here is for national runs. If a film is showing only in a local or regional basis (perhaps where it was filmed) that information will be limited to the local CMC pages on Facebook (Our app is planned to Beta launch in 2023!).

Once available, the buttons below each film banner will share the detailed review from the organizations MovieGuide, Plugged In, and Dove. We do this because we are a ministry of awareness – we know people can’t support anything they are not aware of, so we want to make people aware, so they can then dig deeper and determine if they are interested.

Full Theater Runs

Reviews to added under each film block as time allows and they become available.


In the 1970s, young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer), they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a JESUS REVOLUTION.
