LFS Movie Night - "God Loves Uganda"

Come join us for LFS movie night at the Zoetroplis Theater!

Ticket prices are only $8.00 for regular seating and $7.00 for Seniors and Students (ID required). Tickets purchased at the door. No online ticket sales.

"The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill (often called the "Kill the Gays bill" in the media due to the originally proposed death penalty clauses) was passed by the Parliament of Uganda on 20 December 2013 with the death penalty proposal dropped in favor of life in prison.

The legislative proposal would broaden the nondiscrimination of same-sex relations in Uganda domestically, and further includes provisions for Ugandans who engage in same-sex relations outside of Uganda, asserting that they may be extradited for punishment back to Uganda, and includes penalties for individuals, companies, media organizations, or non-governmental organizations that know of gay people or support LGBT rights." - Wikipedia

The film maker gained unprecedented access to the American evangelicals behind this surge of anti-gay bigotry in Uganda.

About the award winning documentary:

"A searing look at the role of American evangelical missionaries in the persecution of gay Africans" - The New York Times

The feature-length documentary God Loves Uganda is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting “sexual immorality” and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law.

Watch the Trailer

God Loves Uganda premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18th, 2013 and has won numerous awards at film festivals so far. The film serves as a catalyst for change, through our upcoming international screening tour and social action campaign.

Watch interview with director Roger Ross Williams on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Filmmaker Roger Ross Williams exposes the missionary movement in Uganda as an outgrowth of Africa’s colonialist past and a twenty-first century crusade to recreate a continent of people in the image and likeness of America’s most extreme fundamentalists.

Synopsis: More on the story about God Loves Uganda.

    The president of Uganda is set to sign the legislation discussed in the film. If anyone wanted that update... :-(

    I love the ambience at a small theater like this.

    I vote we have more events at this venue.

      I think that is a great suggestion. I would also love to help support a local movie house that plays films that you can't find elsewhere. Zoetropolis ended up being a pretty cool place. The couches and BYOB didn't hurt either.

      Thanks so much for this Scott! I saw then, they have a 4 movie card for $25 (it's like one free). The guy said you can get that and bring three friends and use it all at once.

      Now that's a Really good question!!

      Didn't bring any to the movie but enjoyed one at the "after party"

    Disturbing look at the U.S. evangelical fueled hatred of homosexuals and the laws they spawned in Uganda. The film maker did a great job in capturing the atmosphere and causes of this horrible situation.

    By any chance, will anyone be coming from Harrisburg by way of the Turnpike? If so, can I bum a ride off the Lebanon Exit/Rt. 72 South?

    Thx Scott! Great job with all the info on here for this invite. Cute video of Leigh, thank goodness she had the passion to bring back Zoe so we can have this in Lancaster.

    This might be a scarier movie than any horror movie cuz it's real! It's one that I don't want to see for so many reasons but know that I have to see it for so many reasons more.

    Were you thinking of doing a discussion after the movie Scott? If other people are interested, I'd be up for dinner or drinks before or after the movie.

    • Scott R.

      I don't see any reason that we can't hang out upstairs at the theater for a little while. It is a BYOB place, correct? I'm not going to schedule a dinner or drinks through meetup though. That is something that interested people can decide for themselves easy enough after the movie.
