Also, throughout December, churches, and schools will be able to show this wholesome film via the Fathom Affinity Network. These organizations can give the gift of BUTTONS, A Christmas Tale to their communities. A good opportunity to bring the themes of faith, hope, and family to regions where theaters may not currently be open, or where seating may be limited.
BUTTONS follows two orphaned children who meet a pair of unexpected visitors. Their influence starts the children on a journey that will change their lives forever – and help audiences discover that believing can be the greatest adventure of all.
Created by writer/director of Tim Janis, BUTTONS attracted some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Roma Downey, Jane Seymour, Ioan Gruffudd, Katie McGrath, Robert Picardo, John de Lancie, Charles Shaughnessy, and Paul Greene. The film is narrated by Academy Award winners Robert Redford and Kate Winslet, with the theme song “Nova” written for the project by Sir Paul McCartney.
Exclusive to this special event screening, Paul Greene will host a pre-show Christmas concert, where he will share stories and songs of the holiday season. While Greene is best known for his role as Dr. Carson Shepherd in the Hallmark Channel series “When Calls the Heart,” many may not realize his musical prowess. A multi-instrumentalist, Greene has an impressive musical career and has even performed at Carnegie Hall.
