After months of anticipation, positive pre-release press, and an enthusiastic premiere event, Same Kind of Different as Me opened in theaters nationwide last weekend. And thankfully, audiences responded with great enthusiasm and reviews. That’s really the litmus test for any film. It’s not what the producer, distributor or talent thinks that matters, it’s the viewers that need to be reached, engaged and inspired.
And they were. Here’s how we know.
CinemaScore, who has set the industry standard for polling audiences on opening night to assess their reaction to a film, provided ballots to randomly selected audience members. Each one was asked to assign a grade to the film from A (for the best) to F (for the worst). These results were tallied, and a final overall grade was assigned to the film, which was then publically released on Saturday.
“Same Kind of Different as Me” scores an A!
With an “A” CinemaScore, audiences affirmed what we believed. In these times, a film that communicates hope, healing, redemption and restoration is not only warmly welcomed, it is enthusiastically embraced.
See It Now, While You Can!
Again this weekend, Same Kind of Different as Me will be shown in theaters around the country. Please take friends and family to see this powerful film. The more support we receive, the longer it stays in theaters. And the longer it’s in theaters, the more people will be influenced by a movie that portrays the life-changing impact of faith, hope and love.
Thank you so much for supporting movies with a great message! Without you, the viewer, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
