On the heels of Fathom Events announcing a special one-year anniversary screening for Is Genesis History?, the filmmakers have announced that additional bonus footage has been added to the film exclusively for a one-night held February 22, 2018 at over 800 theaters around the country through Fathom Events.

This new segment of the film features Dr. Del Tackett touring the acclaimed Ark Encounter with a group of college students who formed a “Creation Society” club to explore the topics of science, faith, and creation.

Filmmaker Thomas Purifoy Jr. explains, “We were contacted by a group of students from Wheaton College who asked that we screen the film and open up a discussion on their campus. To our surprise, the students revealed that only 2 out of 200 professors on campus believed in young Earth creation.” Three of these students are interviewed in the new bonus materials.

Last year, the event ranked # 1 at the box office for the day and achieved the # 1 per screen average, earning it two theatrical encore presentations and according to Variety, the film landed as Fathom Events’ # 2 highest grossing event for 2017.

Filmmaker Thomas Purifoy Jr. continues, “With this encore anniversary screening, we hope that more viewers will be challenged and inspired by how science and theology intersect with the history recorded in Genesis. It was an incredible journey filming Is Genesis History? and we are honored that so many viewers and supporters are continuing the conversation.”
