Albany -- "Facing the Giants," a Christian-themed movie produced here in Albany, is getting support from local businesses for its nationwide release tommorow.

Chick-Fil-A on Dawson Road is putting movie inserts in to-go bags to encourage customers to see the movie.

The owners have partnered with Sherwood Baptist Church in the past, but they are particularly excited about the nationwide release of this movie.

Chick-fil-A is a biblicly-based corporation so advertising the Christian movie to customers will spread the company's values while supporting the local movie.

"We really are affiliated with Sherwood like whatever they do we like to support them cause they support us. They cater lunch and breakfast so they support us so we like to support them," said Chick-Fil-A manager Nikhol Graham.

Chick-Fil-A also provided meals on the set of "Facing the Giants" during filming in 2004. The movie will open in about 450 theaters nationwide tommorow.
