I Can Only Imagine Movie in Theater 3/16


I CAN ONLY IMAGINE is the exciting new Christian film coming to theaters on March 16, 2018!
I’ve had the honor and privilege to watch some sneak peek clips of this film based on the song known most by the artist, Bart Millard, and Christian band, Mercy Me, and I can certainly say it has grabbed my interest! A very compelling storyline that should hit home with a lot of people. It will speak to many who may be searching for healing in broken relationships with their parent or loved one, as well as impacting them through the power of this incredible inspired song and how it came to be. I’m looking forward to seeing the film in its entirety this week coming and will have to share in another post my full thoughts on the film.
About the Movie:
It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many … often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.
Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.
Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.
I was happily surprised to see some fun visitors in the film including everyone’s favorite from War Room – Priscilla Shirer! Can’t wait to see what kind of role they gave her.
The whole concept of God helping to explode the Christian music and Christian film industry simply thrills me! I have prayed for so long for more family friendly and faith-based films to be created and for Christian music to be inspired that speaks straight to the hearts of those who listen. I believe this film has the opportunity to do just that on both accounts!!
Now, if you add the fact that Dennis Quaid is in the I Can Only Imagine movie as a major role in the film, you’ll see it has huge impact on my excitement to see it! I can’t wait to see his experience and acting expertise portrayed in a Christian film like this! My husband and I have always loved his acting and many of the films he has been in have been used to share with our children as some of our favorites. This would be a super addition to our family collection I’m sure. I’ll be happily anticipating the film’s release this Friday, March 16th!
I did get to watch a clip of behind the scenes footage where they interviewed Dennis Quaid about his role. Without giving away any big spoilers, I will express that he seemed to thoroughly enjoy sharing about his part in the movie and the transformation that gets to occur in his character.  If you want to find out what kind of awesome impact this film can have on you and your family or friends – be sure to pick up tickets and support the release of this film this weekend in a theater near you!
