Three faith-based films, two with Texas connections, open this weekend

Posted 7:44am on Friday, Oct. 18, 2013

It’s not unusual for faith-based films, which don’t usually receive a lot of mainstream promotion, to quietly pop up on theater marquees. But it is notable when three of them arrive at the same time, as is happening in North Texas this weekend.

On top of that, two of them have Texas ties.

Seasons of Gray, starring Andrew Cheney and Megan Parker, is from Dallas-based EchoLight Productions, the company that recently recruited former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum as CEO. The story follows a guy, run off his family ranch by his jealous brothers, who has to start his life over in Dallas. It’s playing at AMC Grapevine Mills, Rave Northeast Mall in Hurst, Cinemark West Plano, Cinemark Frisco Square and Cinemark 14 Denton.

Beyond the Farthest Star, from Dallas-based Pathlight Productions and also shot here, focuses on a preacher in a small Texas town. Starring Todd Terry and Renee O’Connor, it’s showing at Harkins Southlake, Cinemark West Plano and the Majestic 12 in Greenville.

Finally, there’s I’m in Love With a Church Girl starring Stephen Baldwin, Michael Madsen and rapper Ja Rule as a former drug dealer who makes a big change in his life. It’s opening throughout the Metroplex including AMC Grapevine Mills, Parks at Arlington, Rave Northeast Mall, Studio Movie Grill Spring Valley, Cinemark West Plano and Cinemark 14 Cedar Hill.
