Questions and Answers

Why do I need a site license?

In order to legally show any copyrighted movie in a public setting such as a theater, auditorium, or any public building, including a church or school, a site license is required. Even regular DVDs purchased online or from a store are only licensed for private home use and are not licensed for public group showings. In order to show any movie, including IGNATIUS of LOYOLA, to your parish, school or organization, you must purchase a Site License. You can download a site license for the number of screenings you wish to have here. Ignatius Press will provide support, a beginning package of promotional materials and additional information to help make this exciting movie experience a successful and memorable one!

Can I host the movie if I live outside North America?

Ignatius Press owns North American rights for Ignatius of Loyola. As a result, it is not possible to authorize distribution or host screenings outside of the U.S. and Canada. We are grateful for the strong international interest.

Can we show this movie in our parish hall?

This film is available on DCP (digital cinema package) and theater-quality Blu-Ray disc suitable for showing in a theater or auditorium equipped with theater-quality equipment that will do justice to the production value of this film. Unless your parish or organization has an in-house theater for screening films (and yes, we know of a few) you must find and rent a theater to show this film.

How much does it cost to rent a theater?

Renting a theater can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to over $1,000. Does your town have a locally owned, perhaps smaller theater? See what you can find. If you are looking into a larger Cineplex, talk with the local manager rather than calling the corporate offices. Find out if there is a discount for certain days or times. Be ready to negotiate. Let the theater owner or manager know that you will be bringing in people who many not usually attend their theater. Remind them that these are folks who will be happy to purchase their concessions. Help them to see what a great benefit that showing this movie truly will be for them!

How much should we sell tickets for?

You can sell your tickets for whatever you wish. However, we would recommend that you sell tickets for whatever movie tickets cost for a new release in your area. The average is generally $10-$12. You can offer discounts for seniors, students, bulk purchases (buy 10 get 1 free) whatever works for you! Definitely pre-sell your tickets! Offer them after Masses, at area businesses, call-ins and online (some folks set up an online order site (generally this costs the purchaser a dollar or two extra, but is very convenient). You may find you end up with a sell-out performance before your event date! Then it’s time to contact Ignatius Press to arrange for a second, third, etc., showing!

Can we sell DVDs of this movie?

Yes! For the first time, we have exclusive DVD packages available for the theatrical screening hosts only to purchase at a discount to have available to sell at the theater (if the theater owner will allow space for that purpose) and/or at the screening host’s church or hall. These Ignatius of Loyola DVDs will be available exclusively through the host group and may not be sold in stores or online or by any other organization. Hosts may also place reorders for additional DVDs. The Ignatius of Loyola DVD will become available for general sale in Spring 2017. Please see the order form on this website or contact Diane Hanson – toll free at 1-866-431-1531 ext. 5 or e-mail

If we add on more screenings, how do we get additional tickets, posters and DVDs?

We’re just a phone call or e-mail away! Inexpensive packages of tickets and posters as well as discounted DVD packages will be available for reorder. There will also be digital versions of promotional materials you can print yourself. Just check on this website or contact Diane Hanson – toll free at 1-866-431-1531 ext. 5 or e-mail

Is this movie suitable for children?

This movie is not suitable for young children. Although it is not rated, we would probably rate it a PG11–13 due to a few intense scenes. Parental Guidance is advised. Parents should be aware that there are some scenes that might be too intense and disturbing for their children, such as the war scenes, self-flagellation scenes and encounters with the devil as well as the intensity of the resetting of Ignatius’ broken leg.
