HELP US HELP FUTURE FILMS: Much of our early growth was personal – me asking a simple question after as many Christian films as I could….
“Would you like to hear about other Christian films coming to the area?”
That’s it. But I can’t be at every, or even most Christian film screenings.
If they are, ask them to visit ChristianMovieCentral.com/Peoria – this page – to sign up for emails above.
IMPORTANT: if they are not interested, don’t force the issue, just thank them for supporting the film you are at. But if they are, point them our way – we must extend beyond the controls of social media moving forward.
For movie reviews (when available) visit our 2023 Films page here.
NEFARIOUS (Full Run – Weekend 3)
May 12-14 Theaters
AMC Grand Prairie 18
On the day of his scheduled execution, a convicted serial killer gets a psychiatric evaluation during which he claims he is a demon, and further claims that before their time is over, the psychiatrist will commit three murders of his own.
Note from Rich: While marketed as a “horror” film, it is not a spooky, jumpy film at all. If you enjoyed CS Lewis The Screwtape Letters, you will LOVE this film!
BIG GEORGE FOREMAN (FULL RUN)
Weekend of May 12-14
GQT Willow Knolls 14
AMC Pekin 14
Based on the remarkable true story of one of the greatest comebacks of all time and the transformational power of second chances. Fueled by an impoverished childhood, Foreman channeled his anger into becoming an Olympic Gold medalist and World Heavyweight Champion, followed by a near-death experience that took him from the boxing ring to the pulpit. But when he sees his community struggling spiritually and financially, Foreman returns to the ring and makes history by reclaiming his title, becoming the oldest and most improbable World Heavyweight Boxing Champion ever. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker George Tillman Jr. from a story by Dan Gordon and Frank Baldwin & George Tillman Jr, and a screenplay by Baldwin & Tillman, the film stars Khris Davis (Judas and the Black Messiah) as Foreman and also stars Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker as Foreman’s trainer and mentor Doc Broadus.
