At the Movies 2020

Where Church and Movies Meet

Introduction

At the Movies is a favorite summer tradition at New Hope. This three-week blockbuster series will be both fun and meaningful, as we dive into some of Hollywood’s biggest hits to unpack spiritual truths for our lives.

Just Mercy

Just Mercy is based on the life work of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Stevenson could have had his pick of lucrative jobs, but instead headed to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned. He becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings, and overt and unabashed racism, as he fights for the rights of many with the system stacked against them.

Avengers: Endgame

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. The Avengers and their allies must assemble once more and learn to put differences aside in order to set things right. Along the way, they realize sacrifices must be made as they work together and prepare for the ultimate final showdown with Thanos, which will result in the heroes fighting the biggest battle they’ve ever faced.

Abominable

When teenage Yi encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin and Peng, name him "Everest" and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.
