Season 3 Finale of "The Chosen" to Play on the Silver Screen
Updated: Jan 17
The last two episodes are headed for a limited-engagement theatrical release early next month.
Season 3 of The Chosen will finish the way it started: with two episodes releasing nationwide in movie theaters. Judging by the initial demand for tickets, this finale will be a big success, too, because when show creator/director Dallas Jenkins announced it yesterday during the livestream debut of episode six, the response was so intense that it temporarily crashed the website of distributor Fathom Events.
The release will consist of episodes seven and eight, which culminate with what is certainly among the most stunning miracles of Jesus' earthly ministry: the feeding of the 5,000 (Luke 9:10 - 17). A recent post on the program's social media really raises the bar for what audiences can expect.
"Episodes 7 & 8 of Season Three are so big they demand to be on the big screen."
A synopsis on the Fathom Events' website gives more details, stating that in addition to the aforementioned miraculous feeding, viewers can expect to see how "Matthew's faith takes a turn," and "Simon and Eden face a marital crisis."
The production will be in theaters on February 2nd and 3rd and you can purchase tickets to a venue in your area via this link to the website of Fathom Events; it will play internationally as well - in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom - though we do not have any links for that, so if you live in those countries, you will need to check with local movie theaters.
If you are not able to go to the theater, you won't have to wait long, because streaming is not far behind: episode seven will debut on all the regular platforms February 5th, followed by episode eight on February 7th and, in keeping with past practice, they will be free of charge. The two episodes are still in post-production and the trailer has not yet been released, but Christian Film Blog will follow developments and bring that to you as soon as it comes out.
