This Epic Tale Comes to the Big Screen on May 2, 2017, Only, With
Inside Look Into the History of Sight & Sound

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#JonahOnStageEvent–Following an acclaimed stage run where more than one million people saw
‘JONAH’ live, this signature show – based on one of the most well-known
Bible stories ever told – springs to life in jaw-dropping scale on the
big screen for one night. Filmed before a live audience at Sight &
Sound’s Lancaster, Pennsylvania theater, “JONAH:
On Stage!
” comes to movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, May 2,
at 7:00 p.m. local time, from Fathom Events and Sight & Sound.

In addition to this incredible production, audiences will get an
exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the history of Sight & Sound, whose
live stage shows have been seen by more than 22 million visitors
worldwide.

Tickets for “JONAH: On Stage!” can be purchased online by
visiting www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in nearly 600 movie theaters through Fathom’s
Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater

When God calls Jonah to offer mercy and forgiveness to the people of
Nineveh, Jonah runs straight in the opposite direction. As is often the
case, one bad choice leads to another and soon Jonah’s “get-away” ship
is on the verge of destruction amidst a terrible storm. To save
themselves, the ship’s crew tosses Jonah overboard and into the waiting
mouth of one ginormous fish.

JONAH: On Stage!” brings to life the journey of this lovable,
yet stubborn, prophet. This spectacular performance offers light-hearted
humor, cinematic music, massive sets, colorful costumes and a
breath-taking underwater scene featuring a 40-foot whale.

Sight & Sound is the largest theater company of its kind in the country
– with one of the largest stages in any theater – exclusively focusing
on stories from the Bible, produced in epic scale. Last year, 1.4
million people from around the world came to experience a production at
one of Sight & Sound’s locations in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and
Branson, Missouri. The Lancaster location is one of the top three
theater destinations in the country.

“Sight & Sound has entertained audiences of all ages at their live
theater shows for decades,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “We are
thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind stage production to families across
the country in the biggest way possible – on big screens nationwide.”

“More than a million people come to see one of our shows every year,”
Sight & Sound CEO Matt Neff said. “And now for the very first time,
instead of audiences coming to us—we’re going to them.”
