    Unfortunately, this package does not include rights to show the movie publicly. I am trying to arrange a free congregational movie night as a Thrivent Action Team educational event and the cost to rent the movie for one night is $99 plus $32 for round trip shipping.
    Do you have any way to get the rights to legally show the movie publicly for less money?

      Thank you for your comment. If the film is only being shown to congregation members, the $75 package is sufficient.

        What really bothers me is that if I do this I am paying more, but it is only for one night use and we will not have the DVD for future class use. I guess that would cost another $75, or we could purchase it on Amazon, but that probably has the “home use only” restriction on it.

          Thank you for your comment. One of the producers provided the following response.

          As producers, we tried to set up options that would be fair to everyone, but some situations test that goal. That is, our distributor originally suggested $250 as the minimum for a single screening rental; we explained that there would be many smaller groups that could not afford that, and thus created the $99 rental for smaller groups. But because that $99 offer is for the right to screen the film publicly once, the DVD must be returned. In this case, I think event fits the $75 Bible Study guidelines, which would allow the group to keep the DVD.

    Every time I try to order the 75$ package it comes up $350. What gives?
