Sight & Sound Theatres' MOSES Coming to Movie Theaters Nationwide This September
The epic musical drama MOSES from Sight & Sound Theatres comes to cinemas nationwide September 13 and 15 through Fathom Events. Filmed in front of a live audience, the original stage production was seen by nearly two million people at Sight & Sound's theaters in Lancaster, PA and Branson, MO.
"The burning bush, the plagues, the parting of the Red Sea and the Ten Commandments-the story of MOSES is massive," Executive Producer Josh Enck said. "But at its heart, this is an intimate story of the man who climbed a mountain to meet God."
In addition to this incredible production, audiences will get a behind-the-scenes look at the 40-year history of Sight & Sound Theatres, whose live stage shows have been seen by more than 23 million visitors worldwide.
Set adrift as a baby and now wandering in the wilderness, Moses is one unlikely hero-until God calls him into action. From THE NILE River to the Red Sea, journey with Moses as he leads God's people on an amazing adventure toward the Promised Land.
Filmed in front of a live audience at Sight & Sound Theatres, MOSES is the original stage production that has thrilled nearly 2 million people. Now families across the country can experience this epic Bible story as it comes to life in movie theaters for two days only: Thursday, September 13, and Saturday, September 15.
"This high-quality production of MOSES will be a thrilling experience for attendees of all ages," Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. "We are excited to bring another Sight & Sound event to movie theaters that displays the unique multi-dimensional detail put into their titles."
About the Production
The original, live stage production of MOSES debuted in 2014 at Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, PA, then appeared in Branson, MO for the 2016-17 season. The filmed version captures all the spectacle and grand scale that are signatures of a Sight & Sound show.
Action takes place on three sides of the audience on a 300-foot panoramic stage . . . and in the aisles! MOSES features 60 sets that required two years to build, some reaching three stories high. Dozens of live animals include horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, goats . . . (and stay alert for the trained rats). The cast is decked out in more than 880 costumes as they bring Moses' story to life with a musical score by Hollywood veteran Don Harper, composer for National Treasure and The Lion King 1½, among many others.
Taking MOSES to cinemas marks the second time Sight & Sound has moved one of its productions from the stage to the screen. JONAH played in movie theaters nationwide in 2017.
