'CHRISTMAS WITH THE CHOSEN: THE MESSENGERS' Breaks Records for Distributor Fathom Events

News Staff : Dec 3, 2021  PR Newswire

"We don't do this for the numbers, but these records indicate people will indeed go to the theater for a project they're passionate about. The enthusiastic comments from new and old fans give us confidence to do this again." -Chosen creator, writer and director Dallas Jenkins

BCN Editor's Note: I was blessed to attend the first showing of "Christmas with The Chosen: The Messengers" on Wednesday night and was not disappointed. The first part of the production featured various Christian artists sharing about how The Chosen had impacted them, and performing Christmas songs on the actual set. The second part of the movie contained the entirely new episode of The Chosen, called "The Messengers," and it was excellent! The episode was written in such a way that even if you'd never watched any of The Chosen series, you could watch this one and it would make sense. Due to the original two dates for the movie selling out almost immediately, new showings have been added.
