Sight & Sound Theatres’ ‘Moses’ adds another night in cinemas after strong ticket sales

Due to strong advanced ticket sales, MOSES, one of the most iconic Bible adventures, will now be playing in movie theaters for three nights following its debut on the Sight & Sound stage. The show will entertain cinema audiences of all ages this fall, including a behind-the-scenes look at the amazing history of Sight & Sound Theatres®, their locations, and stage shows seen by more than 23 million visitors. Audiences will be able to enjoy the show in select movie theaters on September 13, 15 and 20.

Filmed in front of a live audience at Sight & Sound Theatres®, “MOSES” is an original stage production experienced by nearly 2 million people. Set adrift as a baby and now wandering in the wilderness, Moses is one unlikely hero until God calls him into action. From the Nile River to the Red Sea, journey with Moses as he leads the chosen people on an amazing adventure toward the Promised Land.

FUN FACTS        

  • The dozens of live animals in the show include horses, camels, donkeys, sheep and goats . . . (and stay alert for the trained rats).
  • Don Harper, composer for MOSES, is a Hollywood veteran of scores for NATIONAL TREASURE and THE LION KING 1½, among many others.
  • MOSES uses more video projection than any previous Sight & Sound production. And while past shows used three projectors max, MOSES uses 13.
  • A rotating treadmill built into the stage becomes an engineering theatrical feat.
  • MOSES’ massive sets reach as high as three stories (30 feet).
  • MOSES’ 60 sets took more than two years to build, at a cost of $2.5 million.
  • The burning-bush effect took a year to develop. In concert with God’s voice, the dramatic “flame” changes color, texture and temperature.
  • MOSES features 379 costume designs for 880 costumes. Sight & Sound’s seamstresses sewed 16,000 snaps on by hand and used 12,348 yards of fabric—enough to wrap the theatre 46 times. The show features miles of hair, too, 400 wigs and 125 beards and mustaches.

Synopsis
Set adrift as a baby and now wandering in the wilderness, Moses is one unlikely hero—until God calls him into action. From the Nile River to the Red Sea, journey with Moses as he leads God’s people on an amazing adventure toward the Promised Land.

Filmed in front of a live audience at Sight & Sound Theatres, MOSES is the original stage production that has thrilled nearly 2 million people. Now families across the country can experience this epic Bible story as it comes to life in movie theaters for two days only: Thursday, September 13, and Saturday, September 15.

“This high-quality production of MOSES will be a thrilling experience for attendees of all ages,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “We are excited to bring another Sight & Sound event to movie theaters that displays the unique multi-dimensional detail put into their titles.”

About the Production
The original, live stage production of MOSES debuted in 2014 at Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster, PA, then appeared in Branson, MO for the 2016-17 season. The filmed version captures all the spectacle and grand scale that are signatures of a Sight & Sound show.

Action takes place on three sides of the audience on a 300-foot panoramic stage . . . and in the aisles! MOSES features 60 sets that required two years to build, some reaching three stories high. Dozens of live animals include horses, camels, donkeys, sheep, goats . . .  (and stay alert for the trained rats). The cast is decked out in more than 880 costumes as they bring Moses’ story to life with a musical score by Hollywood veteran Don Harper, composer for National Treasure and The Lion King 1½, among many others.

Taking MOSES to cinemas marks the second time Sight & Sound has moved one of its productions from the stage to the screen. JONAH played in movie theaters nationwide in 2017.
