Christmas with the Chosen: The Messengers has now become Fathom Events’ best-selling and most highly attended event in its history.
Scheduled to be screened in 1,700 movie theaters across the country during the first 10 days of December, THE CHOSEN’S depiction of the Christmas story shattered past records for Fathom Events, with sales topping $8 million for 640,000 tickets.
The event also set a Fathom record for fastest out-of-the-gate sales with $1.5 million in its first 12 hours of availability.
The Christmas episode of THE CHOSEN tells the biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ from the perspectives of Mary and Joseph.
“We don’t do this for the numbers, but these records indicate people will indeed go to the theater for a project they’re passionate about,” said CHOSEN creator, writer, and director Dallas Jenkins. “The enthusiastic comments from new and old fans give us confidence to do this again.”
