The Faith in Film(FIF) Series exists to provide a venue for the screening of thought-provoking films.  It is sponsored by area churches, businesses, and organization in conjunction with Maiden Alley Cinema.  Following each film will be an optional discussion period, facilitated by the sponsor of the film, during which all will have the opportunity to express their thoughts regarding the challenges and messages of the film. The Faith in Film Series is not restricted to any particular denomination or faith.  We welcome all, of any faith background, to come and enjoy the show!  The FIF programming is always on the second Monday of every month (May-December) at 6:30pm and tickets are $5 per person.

Carrie Watts is living the twilight of her life trapped in an apartment in 1940's Houston, Texas with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. Her fondest wish -- just once before she dies -- is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as "home." The trouble is her son, Ludie, is too concerned for her health to allow her to travel alone and her petty daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, insists they don't have money to squander on bus tickets. This prompts "escape" attempts each month which coincide with the arrival of Mrs. Watts' Social Security check. Then, Mrs. Watts makes a successful escape and last trip home.
