Sponsor a Screening

Ignatius of Loyola is a story of life, love, death, sin, tragedy, despair, powerful conversion and saintly dedication to God. This movie is available for screening at a perfect time before and during the Lenten season.

Not since the release of Mary of Nazareth in 2013 has there been such an epic Catholic film of this scope, quality and grandeur! And this is the first full-length feature film on St. Ignatius of Loyola since the last one was produced in the 1940s!

So why rent a theater and show this film?

  • Evangelization – help people grow in their faith, come into the faith and return to the faith.
  • Enlightenment, Education and Inspiration – many know very little about St. Ignatius of Loyola. This is a tremendous way to bring this saint to “life” and to be inspired by his remarkable story in just two hours!
  • Entertainment – a wonderful way to draw people of faith and those yearning for faith together for an excellent movie experience with superb acting, directing, cinematography and musical score.
  • Fundraising – many individuals and groups have been very successful in utilizing the sponsored theatrical screenings of past Ignatius Press films to raise significant funds for some very worthy causes. For the first time, theatrical screening hosts will also be able to purchase the Ignatius of Loyola DVDs at a discount to sell for fundraising purposes as well.

Screenings can begin on January 22, 2017. The movie is available in DCP (Digital Cinema Package) that can be sent directly to your theater and returned by the theater, or in Blu-Ray disc that will be mailed to you to take to the theater and returned by you when your screenings are finished.

Costs for the screenings are $650 for the first showing and $200 for all subsequent showings at the same theater. Each Event License comes with an initial set of posters and tickets (see end of second page of license). Additional promotional materials can be purchased using the DVD and Promotional Materials Order Form.

As a host, you will also have the opportunity to purchase a package of DVDs of this film at a discount that you can sell after showing the movie and use for fundraising as well. Packages will be available in sets of 10, 25, 50 and 100 DVDs. Anyone purchasing a package of 25 or more DVDs along with their initial site license will receive a $50 discount on the Site License.

The retail cost of the DVD will be $24.95 and will have a booklet with information about Ignatius of Loyola and about the film in the DVD case. Hosts will enjoy exclusive sales of the DVD until the end of March since it will not be available for general sale until Spring 2017.

Reactions to Ignatius of Loyola Screenings

Here’s what some of our hosts and their customers are saying:

Everyone loved the movie! We had 124 people come to the first showing and they all clapped at the end of the movie. It was the best Catholic movie I’ve seen and everyone loved coming to the theater to see such an awesome movie. One person I knew really well came up to me and he said, “Watching this movie makes me want to go and get a sack cloth and go out and preach!”

– Chuck Walden, Maryland

The movie screening was a tremendous success and we sold out of all 50 DVDs and we are ordering more. All along I’ve always thought that showing movies is one of the best ways to evangelize.

– Gloria Williams, Texas

What a powerful, powerful movie that is! Some people came out of the theater buying tickets for the next night. I talked to a lot of people and the one word everyone used was “powerful”! It just blew them out of the water.

People said they just loved that we bring movies to them and they wish it was more often than once every two or three years. It was spectacular! I can hardly wait to see it again!

– Charlotte LeMay, California

What Do Previous Screening Hosts Say?

After hosting several screenings, I can honestly say that film is a wonderful way to educate and entertain people about our faith.  Working with Ignatius Press has been an absolute joy and their staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  And not only have these Ignatius Press films been spiritually uplifting and a powerful tool for evangelization, but they have allowed us to raise substantial funds for the charities we support. I can’t wait to get started on the next screening!

– Marsha Kampfl, Peoria, IL

What a way to start 2017! We need these faith-based films. These ordinary people that became extraordinary people chosen by God. They changed the lives of many people. We are all chosen by God to become extraordinary and make a difference in the world. And we have absolutely been able to raise funds – these theatrical screenings have been very beneficial for us. Our focus was not about money, but we have raised money by bringing these stories to our area. It has made such a difference in our community. And especially for our young people who often do not even know about these saints.
