This Limited Engagement Special Event Comes to Cinemas May 1 and 3 Only, Featuring a Panel Discussion With Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Dennis and Barbara Rainey, and Bob Lepine
DENVER – January 10, 2018 – From executive producers Alex and Stephen Kendrick (“War Room,” “Courageous”), FamilyLife’s Dennis and Barbara Rainey, and Bob Lepine, the inspirational event “Like Arrows” will debut in movie theaters nationwide for two nights this May. Charlie and Alice begin to lose relationships with each of their children as work and realities of everyday life consume their time. “Like Arrows” focuses on the power of a family to shape the next generation as they turn to their faith after all else has failed.
Fathom Events and Collide Media Group partner to present this unique event in U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 3 at 7:00 p.m. local time (both days). Audiences will also experience an exclusive panel discussion featuring Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Dennis and Barbara Rainey, and Bob Lepine after the event.

“We’ve had a very positive response from those who’ve had the opportunity to watch ‘Like Arrows.’ It’s a powerful and relatable story that I hope will inspire and help families with any challenges they are facing at home,” “Like Arrows” Executive Producer Bob Lepine said. “It is exciting to partner with Fathom Events to bring this content to families across the country.”
When conflict, rebellion and resentment overwhelm their family, Charlie and Alice are forced to change their parenting strategy, and are surprised to find effective, life-long solutions were closer than they imagined. FamilyLife’s first feature explores the joys and heartaches of parenting. Through a journey that unfolds over 50 years, Charlie and Alice discover the power of family, and learn that knowing and living by God’s word is the most important key to parenting with purpose.
“Like Arrows” stars Alan Powell (“The Song”), Alex Kendrick (“War Room,” “Courageous”) and newcomer Micah Lynn Hanson. It was directed by Kevin Peeples.
“Fathom is thrilled to be partnering with Collide once again to premiere this important story on the big screen,” Fathom Events VP of Programming Kymberli Frueh said. “It will offer a unique opportunity for parents and families to come together and experience this event in a community setting.”
