On Saturday 3rd December at 10am, the brand-new feature film 'Why the Nativity?’ premieres in over 100 Cineworld cinemas across the UK. Churches and their local communities are invited to attend for free courtesy of the film’s maker, Turning Point Ministries.

‘Why the Nativity?’ is a compelling, historical presentation with stunning visual dramatics that follows the unforgettable journey of the first Christmas story. The film transports the audience back in time to experience the sights and sounds of the first Christmas.

Audiences will enjoy a front-row seat to the Nativity story as they witness the Old Testament prophets foretelling the birth of Jesus, Gabriel appearing to Mary, Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem, angels appearing to shepherds, the star guiding the Wise Men from the East, and baby Jesus lying in a manger in a humble stable in Bethlehem.

The film has been created to bring the true story of the nativity to life - particularly for the growing number of people across the UK who have little or no understanding of why Christmas

is celebrated at all. And Turning Point Ministries are committed to making the screening free to those who want to attend.

A local church leader said: “This is such an exciting opportunity for families in the local community to come together to start their Christmas celebrations. Going to the cinema can be out of reach for many families because of pressure on family budgets so the fact that this is free makes it really appealing.”

Turning Point Ministries hope that watching ‘Why the Nativity?’ will become a new Christmas tradition for families across the world.

Individuals and church groups can book their FREE tickets at or by calling 0800 058 2856.
