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


THE SHIFT (website)

Kevin Garner encounters a mysterious man known as “The Benefactor”. When Kevin refuses the man’s enticing offer of wealth and power, he is shifted into alternate totalitarian realities, encountering infinite worlds and impossible choices, as he attempts to return to the woman he loves.


The Perfect Christmas (website)
Now Playing

THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS is a family Christmas comedy, about Michael Perfect, his wife Denise Perfect, and their two children Devin and Michelle Perfect. The Perfects are an American family who experiences a nostalgic holiday that takes place mostly over the course of Christmas Eve. This feature film explores faith, family, and holiday fun. The Perfect Family must navigate the holiday season through outrageous misadventures, criminal activity, posh friends, and crazy predicaments that threaten their opportunity for the “Perfect Christmas”.


Journey to Bethlehem (website)
Now Playing

A young woman carrying an unimaginable responsibility. A young man torn between love and honor. A jealous king who will stop at nothing to keep his crown. This live-action Christmas musical adventure for the entire family weaves classic Christmas melodies with humor, faith, and new pop songs in a retelling of the greatest story ever told—the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of Jesus. A unique new entry into the collection of holiday classic movies, this epic Christmas musical is unlike any before it.
