March 4 is the “God’s Will” movie screening at the Majestic Theatre. From the film creator Aric Grooms…”God’s Will tells the story of two ministers best friends, each caught up in their own crisis of faith. The life of a professional minister can be quite fulfilling, but many times it is excruciatingly challenging. The external pressures and temptations, coupled with the internal desire to please God and serve his creation can become too much to bear for some. God’s Will tells that story in a faith-based film like no other. God’s Will was directed by Matthew Williams (Joker; Many Saints of Newark) and stars Aric Grooms (MidLife) and Ron Barba (Bobby Mortal) and features Nicki Valastro, Madison Setzer and a spectacular ensemble cast. The film includes original music by Troy Ervin and Cassidy Joy and other incredible musical talents.”
God’s Will was filmed primarily in Southern Ohio in the summer of 2023 and features many familiar faces and places. VIP Tickets (orange seats) include a pre show meet and greet with cast and crew and photo ops.
