MANISTEE — The Michigan premiere of the movie “Do You Believe” will kick off with a red carpet walk Friday night at the Ramsdell Theatre.

The Christian film was produced by Pure Flix, based out of Arizona, and 10 West Studios of Manistee. It was produced by Scottville’s Harold Cronk, who directed last year’s faith-based box office hit “God’s Not Dead,” also a Pure Flix production.

The red carpet event begins at 7 p.m. with showtime at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and go on sale at the Ramsdell box office starting at 11 a.m. Friday. They will be sold until they are gone. Any proceeds from the premiere will be donated to Northern Pathways Equine Center of Manistee.

The film, which was shot almost in its entirety in Manistee, Ludington and Muskegon Heights, tells the story of a group of seemingly unrelated individuals whose lives collide in a series of events following one man’s decision to live his life.

Ted McGinley plays the pastor.

It features a large cast of actors including Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings”), Cybill Shepard (“Moonlighting”), J.J. Soria (“Army Wives”), Madison Pettis (“Cory In The House”), Lee Majors (“Six Million Dollar Man”), “Ted McGinley” (“Married with Children”), Alexa PenaVega (“Spy Kids”) and Brian Bosworth (former NFL star),Delroy Lindo (“Macolm X), hip-hop artist Shwayze and Academy Award winner Mira Savino among many others.

“The movie consists of seven story lines,” said Mona Nahm, the film’s line producer. “Each of those story lines includes characters who struggle with their faith. Some of them are believers who wrestle with their faith. Others deal with the choices they have made or need to make in their lives. But, all those story lines come together in what place where each character needs to set aside their differences for the greater good.”

The film was written by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, the same duo who wrote “God’s Not Dead.”

“While this is a Christian film, I think the audience is much broader,” Nehm said. “This story can appeal to people of all backgrounds. It deals with making choices.”
