Feature film about Martin Luther available in select locations.

About the film

Supported by Thrivent Financial, the film brings to life the dramatic moments that shaped Luther, and it examines the universal questions he wrestled with, like "Who am I?" and "What is my purpose?"

In recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a new full-length feature film, "Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World," is playing in select locations around the country.

To see the dates, times and locations of these screenings, go to and select Get Tickets. If there is a site near you, consider inviting church members, friends and family.

Don't see a theater near you showing the film? Book a screening!

Through an arrangement with a film distributor (Tugg), any congregation or related organization can ensure the film will play in their local movie theater by simply selecting Host a Screening from the website above and following the step-by-step instructions. Screening can be booked anytime in 2017.

There is no cost to the congregation to host a screening. (The theater charges attendees normal movie ticket prices.)
