Rebuilding Paradise—Friday, July 31, in Select Theaters and Virtual Screenings
Opening in more than 70 markets as part of a “hybrid release” in addition to a virtual release through ShowcaseNOW, Rebuilding Paradise is slated to open in select drive-ins and individual cinemas. It takes us back to the morning of November 8, 2018 when a spark from a transmission line in Northern California creates a firestorm that engulfs the city of Paradise, California resulting in the deaths of over 80 people, displacing 50,000 residents and destroying 95% of architecture. This made the fire in Paradise the deadliest U.S. fire in 100 years and the worst in California history. Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard and his crew spend nearly a yea with Paradise residents as they faced the utter devastation of this 141 year old town and the ways in which they worked together to heal.

Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Best Supporting Actress nominee Octavia Pencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) who serve as the brains behind the launch of John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit. It was a mission that restored confidence in NASA and turned around the Space Race.
