Pennsylvania community asks for "Facing the Giants"

October 9, 2006

Albany -- Sony Pictures say community leaders in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania have asked that an Albany church's religious movie be shown in their theatre,  to help them deal with the shooting deaths of five school children last week.

The Sony spokesperson said they are working to make "Facing the Giants" available in Lancaster County. That's were Charles Roberts stormed the school last Monday, tying up and shooting 10 girls, before taking his own life.

 Community leaders say they think the Sherwood Baptist Church of Albany's movie will help people deal with the tragedy.

After ten days, "Facing the Giants" is still number 13 at the national box office. More than 400,000 tickets have been sold for the movie, earning about $2.7 million  so far.

"Facing the Giants" was made for about $100,000 by mostly volunteers at Sherwood Baptist.

Sony Pictures says they are considering opening the movie at more screens in the northeastern United States.
