Grand Ole Opry and DigiNext Films team up with charitable partnerCOUNTRY CARES FOR ST. JUDE KIDS®
Nashville - (December 4, 2015) — American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry, the made-for-cinema feature film, opens today in select theaters across the country. After a one-week run, the film will return with a nationwide release in early 2016. The motion picture offers audiences a virtual front row seat and VIP all-access pass to country music’s most famous show, including live Opry performances and backstage conversations with Opry members Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Darius Rucker as well as The Band Perry and Brett Eldredge. To celebrate and honor the Grand Ole Opry’s first-ever feature film, independent distributor DigiNext Films has teamed with one of the Opry’s long-time charitable partners ‘Country Cares for St. Jude Kids®.’ DigiNext is donating a portion of every movie theater ticket sold for American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry to benefit Country Cares for St. Jude Kids, one of the most successful radio fundraising programs of all time, which has raised $550 million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The movie’s official trailer can be seen at www.oprymovie.com. Movie tickets are available via partners MovieTickets.com and Fandango. Since 1989 Country Cares for St. Jude Kids has raised $550 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, in partnership with approximately 200 radio stations and listeners that have generously pledged their support during radiothons. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
