The Chosen Season 3 has launched in movie theatres, giving cinema-goers an opportunity to experience the global phenomenon, multi-episode television drama based on the life of Jesus.
The cinema release includes the first two episodes of The Chosen Season 3’s highly anticipated new season in more than 2000 movie theaters across the USA and in other English-speaking countries.
With more than 420 million episode views from around the world, The Chosen is a fan-supported, seven-season television series that creates an authentic and intimate picture of Jesus’ life and ministry, seen through the eyes of the people who knew him.
“The theme of The Chosen Season 3 is ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest,'” said series Creator Dallas Jenkins. “The honeymoon phase is over, now the characters all have to deal with the costs and occasional confusions of following the Messiah.”
Distributed through Fathom Events and beginning Nov. 18, The Chosen was shown at least 10 times per theater over five days with extended runs possible in the USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. For a complete list of theaters visit www.thechosen.tv/3.
