AN ARBROATH man is bringing moral movies to the town next week in a bid to give cinema-goers other options.

David Kidd, under the guise of non-profit company Ministry of Movies, has organised a showing of the Christian film ‘The Encounter’ at the Webster Memorial Theatre at 7 p.m. on Monday.

He explained that watching the film inspired him to share it with as many people as possible.

David said: “Basically the first film I’m planning on showing, ‘The Encounter’, when I saw it, it really spoke to me and I thought it was a really good film and I wanted to show it to other people.

“The Webster was quite happy for me to do this and it’s just gone from there.

“It’s gone from me wanting to show it to a few people in my church to a lot more.”

David added: “Its just me showing good wholesome films that you could watch with your kids without the risk of embarrassing scenes of sex, violence or swearing.

“All the films are wholesome with good Christian family values. There are a lot of good films out there that will never make the mainstream cinemas because all they are interested in are Hollywood films.”

Released in 2010, ‘The Encounter’ tells the story of a group of strangers who are brought together by a road closure in a diner run by a man claiming to be Jesus.

Tickets are available on the door or from the Webster Memorial Theatre Box Office and includes a cup of tea or coffee after the film.

David plans to follow this with a showing on March 25 in the Webster Theatre of ‘Apostle Peter and the Last Supper’.

He said: “I’m just trying to show people that there are other options. At the moment I’m looking at doing a film every six weeks, but if I can get good enough numbers I’ll be happy to do it fortnightly, and I’d be absolutely ecstatic if I could do it weekly.”
