Special Screening!

Apocalypse Later: Harold Camping vs The End of the World

Sunday, July 7 -- 11 a.m. (see admission prices below)

Skeptics and secular humanists are all too familiar with the seemingly endless End-of-the-World scenarios in books, TV, and movies. Then, along comes Harold Camping, who sounded the alarm that May 21, 2011 was going to be Judgment Day, when God intervenes into our worldly affairs. The Bible guaranteed it! He was wrong. For most Americans, though, these are the Last Days. Fully 79 percent of Americans believe Jesus will return to Earth someday, while 40 percent believe Jesus will return before 2050.

In his new documentary, Apocalypse Later, filmmaker Zeke Piestrup traces the roots of end times' proclamations back to the Book of Daniel, on to the historical Jesus, and lastly, Paul, the greatest of the Apostles. He includes interviews with experts, such as Bart Ehrman of the University of North Carolina. The same excitement that Harold tapped into for his May 21st prediction is the same excitement that helped birth a new religion, Christianity.

A Big Bear native, Piestrup is a documentary filmmaker and is a former KROQ DJ, television host. His first film, 2011's Downhill: The Bill Johnson Story earned rave reviews from The Hollywood Reporter and the Boston Globe. An admitted Christian radio and TV addict, Piestrup first heard of Camping's prediction on one of his drives to Mammoth Mountain. As the only journalist with daily access to the doomsday radio evangelist, Piestrup, even though a non-believer, forged a close relationship with Camping. Apocalypse Later is Piestrup's second feature-length documentary.

    I think I may be willing to pay extra if we get to hear Michael attempt to explain the last presentation to Ross. : )

    I probably will not attend. I have another event to attend the same day and enough lectures on crazy beliefs. - Gary

    I'll try to arrive before the end times. My beat up old car will be left in the parking lot in case I get raptured. - Gary
