Due to popular demand ‘Steve McQueen: American Icon’ returns to cinemas on October 10, October 19

Due to high demand and sold-out auditoriums across the country for the September 28 premiere, “Steve McQueen: American Icon,” will return to cinemas nationwide for encore screenings on October 10 and 19.

Actor and “King of Cool” Steve McQueen went from the world of fame and fortune to seek truth and understanding during the late stages of his life. Now, the iconic actor’s inspirational story comes to U.S. cinemas for three nights in the feature-length theatrical documentary, on Thursday, September 28; Tuesday, October 10; and Thursday, October 19 at 7:00 p.m. local time (all dates).

In addition to the feature content, which includes exclusive interviews and photos, audiences will also see a special message from Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries, as well as a performance by MercyMe.

“McQueen was the highest-paid actor of his era in Hollywood,” said Laurie. “Both on screen and in life he was the epitome of ‘cool.’ Yet few people know that late in his life, the star of now-legendary films such as BULLITT, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and THE GREAT ESCAPE began a spiritual journey that led to Christian faith.”

STEVE MCQUEEN: AMERICAN ICON moves through in-depth interviews with McQueen’s wife, model Barbara Minty McQueen, and debuts her candid photographs from McQueen’s last years. Interviews also feature Academy Award®-winning actor Mel Gibson, renowned stuntman Stan Barrett, celebrated McQueen biographer Marshall Terrill, actors Barbara Leigh and Mel Novak, and the pilot who taught Steve to fly.

The Erwin Brothers (WOODLAWN) along with Ben Smallbone (PRICELESS) direct STEVE MCQUEEN: AMERICAN ICON, presented by American Icon Films LLC and Fathom Events.
