Fireproof the Movie Coming to Rapid City

I'm told that there will be an advanced screening of Fireproof on Friday Aug. 22 at 7:00 pm at Rapid Valley Baptist Church in Rapid City.

Fireproof is a Christian movie made by the same people as the very successful "Facing the Giants" movie.

This is from a press release about the movie:

"Fireproof" mirrors the problems of many marriages, in this case through a firefighter whose high-stress job spills into his home life. Hitting on pain points common to married life—from indifference to insults to emotional affairs and internet porn—the story opens with a couple's disintegration.

"Most movies are about relationships that lead to marriage," Michael Catt, of Sherwood Pictures said. "'Fireproof' picks up seven years into a marriage headed for divorce. And the question is: Can a cold marriage revive? Why stay together?"

Given that firefighters have one of the nation's highest divorce rates, "Fireproof" also has the support of many firefighters and related organizations. John White, former head of the Los Angeles Fire Department's Search & Rescue Team, is urging firefighters across the country to see it.

As I understand it, this advanced showing is primarily for people may be interested in promoting the film to their churches and other organizations, and bringing it to a Rapid City theater.

We Christians love to bellyache about the rot that passes for Hollywood entertainment these days. Movies like Fireproof are a chance for us to literally put our money where our mouth is and do something about it.

Here's a map. Go to the screening if you can.

Below is a trailer for the movie.

"Fireproof doesn't mean that a fire will never come, but that when it comes you'll be able to withstand it."
