Fathom Events and Kirk Cameron present 'Monumental' on March 27

By Staff

On Tuesday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m., movie theater audiences across the country will celebrate America's story of faith and freedom with "Monumental: In Search of America's National Treasure Live." Locally, the film will screen at Quality 16, at 3686 Jackson Road, and Ann Arbor 20 IMAX, at 4100 Carpenter Road.

Actor Kirk Cameron ("Growing Pains") hosts an evening that reveals the story of the unlikely men and women who helped shape education, government and civic life in the United States. This special in-theater event will also include live performances from popular Christian music artists, as well as exclusive interviews with media, faith and political figures who will share simple and practical ways to keep America's ideals alive.

Moved by the current economic, political and moral issues facing the country, "Monumental," directed by Duane Barnhart, chronicles Cameron’s personal journey to historic sites across Europe and the U.S. to discover the secret that has made America the freest and most prosperous country in the word. As Cameron retraces the heroic and faithful beginnings of America, he discovers a monument to the founding fathers that answers what core principles will keep America strong, free, and well: freedom, justice, education, morality, and religion.

Tickets for "Monumental" are available online at
