LOS ANGELES, CA (ANS — May 27, 2016) – Fathom Events and EchoLight Studios present “VANISHED | Left Behind: Next Generation” for an exclusive one-night cinema event in select U.S. theaters Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
Inspired by the New York Times best-selling book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the production stars Amber Frank (“The Haunted Hathaways”), Dylan Sprayberry (“Teen Wolf,” “Man of Steel”) and Mason Dye (“Finding Carter,” “Flowers in the Attic”), among others. Following the feature, audience members can enjoy a Q&A with the cast and crew (Frank, Sprayberry, Dye and Keely Wilson), hosted by nationally-known speaker and youth leader, Doug Fields.
According to a news release, tickets for the “VANISHED | Left Behind: Next Generation” event can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 300 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
“VANISHED | Left Behind: Next Generation” follows headstrong 15-year-old Gabby (Frank) who is thrust into adulthood way too soon when a billion people around the globe suddenly vanish, and chaos engulfs the nation. The event forces Gabby, along with her younger sister Claire (Keely Wilson) and the two teen boys vying for Gabby’s affection, Josh (Dye) and Flynn (Sprayberry) — to figure out what has happened and how they fit into this dangerous new world.
The full cast also includes Tom Everett Scott (“That Thing You Do”), Jackson Hurst (“Drop Dead Divas”), Brigid Brannagh (“Army Wives”) and Rachel Hendrix (“October Baby,” “Perfect Wave”).
“We are excited to debut this feature on the big screen,” Fathom Events Vice President of Programming Kymberli Frueh said. “The best-selling Left Behind books from the ‘90s and early 2000s made a huge impact on their readers, and ‘VANISHED | Left Behind: Next Generation’ will resonate with and engage a new legion of young fans.”
