DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kirk Cameron’s celebrated “national family meeting” comes to U.S. movie theaters for two nights, live on October 24 and re-broadcast on November 1, with “REVIVE US 2.” The all-new faith-filled event follows last year’s successful “REVIVE US” cinema event, which set a record as the largest live event in Fathom Events history.
“When we did ‘REVIVE US,’ the overwhelming response from our audience was thankfulness for such an encouraging event during such a divisive time,” Cameron said. “Spontaneous prayer sessions broke out afterward in theaters to pray for our nation! Thousands committed to putting faith in action. But that event wasn’t a finish line. It was a starting line. With political, racial, economic and religious tensions on the rise in America, we need unity and a path to get there now more than ever. ‘REVIVE US 2’ seeks to find a faith-filled solution for everyone.”
Cameron will bring together well-known and inspirational friends such as Dr. Ben Carson, Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Joni Eareckson Tada, Trillia Newbell, musical guests Zach Williams and Christian Cuevas and other special guests for a night of hope, courage and unity.
From Fathom Events and My Faith Votes, alongside CamFam Studios and Provident Films, “REVIVE US 2” comes to cinemas nationwide broadcasting live, for the first time ever, from the brand-new Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, October 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT / 6:00 p.m. MT and tape-delayed to 8:00 p.m. PT/HI/AK. A rebroadcast of the live event will play on Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
