On Tuesday night, “The Chosen” series creator, writer, and director Dallas Jenkins revealed plans for the first-ever big-screen event for the popular series, coming to theaters via Fathom Events on December 1 and 2. Soon after, as fans of the show began purchasing tickets, pre-sale records were shattered for the distributor, resulting in more screens being added, and even more to come.
