The movie stars Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear (Best Supporting Actor, "As Good As It Gets," 1997) as Todd Burpo, the real-life father whose son, Colton, claims to have visited heaven during a near-death experience.

Colton shares the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth -- things he couldn't possibly know. The PG rated movie about faith and the afterlife has grossed more than $91 million in theaters.

See the movie on the big screens at 7:05 p.m. Friday at Celebration Community Church in Hays. There is no admission charge, and popcorn and pop also are free.
