We purchased the license to show Fireproof at our church, and that was such a hit that we want to start having an occasional movie night. We have the CVLI License (Total Producers Package), and I have begun the task of going through every movie so I can label them with a red sticker for "Home Use Only" or a green sticker for "Public Use OK" , but I am having a problem finding a movie that we can show at the church. We have a large number of movies in our Church Library, including Come What May, Faith Like Potatoes, The List, The Last Sin Eater, The Redemption of Sarah Cain, Amazing Grace, The Pilgrim's Progress, Love Comes Softly Series, etc,.however, by following the information that I learned at the last library conference, none of these will be able to be shown. I am a little disappointed because about all I have found so far are the Billy Graham, World Wide Pictures and Big Idea. . At our training session, we were told to go to www.imbd.com and enter the title of the movie, then scroll down to Company and click on that and also view the producers. Only the producers with USA theatrical rights can be shown. I am not having much success so far. Does anyone else have more information? Or do I just need to call CVLI and ask them? We are always learning something new!!
