From Park Theater comes the Ritz Theater. The movie “Saving Faith” will be shown Feb. 16 at the Park Theater at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.
The movie revolves around Faith Scott and her Uncle Donny. Faith is the executive director of the Ritz Theater in the small Tennessee town of Clinton. After years of struggles to keep the doors open, it looks like it might be time to shut them for good.
Faith and Uncle Donny, in one last-ditch effort to keep the theater alive, look to put together a big Christmas show … in June. Using his connections, that Faith knows nothing about, Uncle Donny is able to book big-time headliners for the show – Vince Gill and Amy Grant.
Peter Marsh is a local businessman in Clinton who has been waiting for the Ritz to go under so he can buy it cheap from the bank and sell it to a major developer. When he hears about the Vince Gill and Amy Grant show, he pulls out all the stops to make sure the show does not go on.
Uncle Donny, Faith and their friends and family pull together to make sure they have done everything in their power to keep the doors to the Ritz Theater open, but can they succeed?
Directed by Chip Rossetti, the movie was released in 2017 and is considered a comedy. It was filmed at the Ritz Theater in Clinton. The Ritz was originally opened in 1945 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
