    Making Movie Nights Work: Part Two – Promotion   Posted: Friday, August 29, 2014 By Marc T. Newman, Ph.D. Once you have committed to teaching one or more Movie Bible studies, it is important to get the word out to your target audience. Everybody talks about “promotion,” but we want to discuss seven key elements that will help you to get your intended audience to the event: prayer, coordinating your promotional team, observing promotional limitations, web landing pages, tickets, leveraging social media, personal invitations, and “save the date” cards. Not every group will need to or want to engage all of these strategies. Just target the ones you think would work best for your group. 1. Pray.  Every stage of...

    By Annelie on 21 August 2014 in with 2 Comments

    Making Movie Nights Work: Part One – Planning   by Marc Newman 8/20/14 at 04:00 PM No one doubts the entertainment value of a popular Hollywood film.

Hollywood is betting that the release of 50 Shades of Grey, the film adaptation of the sexually tawdry book of the same name, will be a hit with movie-going couples on Valentine’s Day weekend. One indie film begs to differ. Old Fashioned, a faith-based film presenting a more “Godly” view of romance, will open that same weekend but on far fewer screens. The team behind the project is willing to give movie goers a kinder alternative to Grey. “I wanted to tell a love story that takes the idea of Godly romance seriously,” Rik...
