Inspiring True Story of Dr. Charles Mully "Father of the World's Largest Family" (over 12,000 orphans) Returns to Movie Theaters for One Night Due to Overwhelming Audience ResponseLOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — As a result of sold-out auditoriums and overwhelming demand, audiences will get the chance to experience " MULLY" for a special one-night encore presentation on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 7 p.m. local time. Over the course of three consecutive screening dates, the award-winning film consistently drew in a stronger, larger audience performing 4th at the box office out of all releases and was the #1 attended film per-screen on the final day of its debut showings, October 5. Audiences now have another chance to see this event on the big screen.
What happens when a six-year-old boy is abandoned by his family and left to raise himself on the streets? "MULLY" is no ordinary rags-to-riches tale. It's the true story of Dr. Charles Mully, whose unlikely stratospheric rise to wealth and power leaves him questioning his own existence, searching for meaning in life. Against the better judgment of family and community, Dr. Mully sets out to enrich the fate of orphaned children across the land. Jeopardizing his own life and the security of his family, he risks everything and sets in motion a series of events that is nothing short of astonishing.
"I am humbled and grateful, along with my fellow crusaders at FOR GOOD, by the outpouring of support for 'MULLY' all across the USA," states FOR GOOD. Founder Paul Blavin. "We are thrilled to bring the miracle of 'MULLY' back to movie theaters nationwide at 7 p.m. on November 9."
Presented as a special one-night encore event by FOR GOOD., in partnership with Fathom Events, audiences will enjoy a special interview with Dr. Charles Mully, captured exclusively for this cinema experience.
Focus on the Family is also partnering with Mully Children's Family and FOR GOOD to bring this encore presentation of MULLY to movie screens across the country. A portion of the film's proceeds will go to support orphans internationally through Mully Children's Family and domestically through Focus on the Family.
Tickets for the " MULLY" encore can be purchased starting Friday, October 27 online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating movie theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in select movie theaters.
