Many Look Forward to Home Run, A Movie Filmed in Oklahoma

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- Homerun, a movie shot in Oklahoma, is tugging the hearts of many in Texoma as it opens in select theaters Friday night.

A thousand tickets had to be sold to guarantee the movie to play at the Cinemark in Sherman and local church and community groups were able to sell twice that number.

The movie is about a professional baseball player struggling with alcoholism who is forced to come back to his home town of Okmulgee, Oklahoma to start a 12 step program called Celebrate and Recovery.

"The founder, he couldn't share his alcoholism with the church and he couldn't share his Christianity in his recovery meeting and so he came up with the idea of Celebrate & Recovery and we just think it fits so beautifully," explains Judy Odom who has seen the movie and participates in a local Celebrate & Recovery group.

Several churches support this type of recovery group and are excited to see the movie play here in Texoma.

"We have about 19 churches in Denison and Sherman that are behind the movie plus those over in Bryan County and Oklahoma, so we deal with people on a regular basis with those people that are struggling with different issues, men and women, and if they see the movie it will open their eyes to see there is hope," explains Neal Odom who leads the Celebrate & Recovery group at the Park Avenue Church of Christ in Denison.

The Cinemark in Sherman is the only theater playing the movie in this area, though theaters around Dallas, McKinney, and Plano are also playing the film.
