|This is the day! Thank you for you support of the Unplanned Movie In Canada.|
QUICK RECAP OF 5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TODAY TO SUPPORT THIS MOVIE //
STEP 1: GO & SUPPORT BY SEEING, INVITE YOUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT OR MPP/MLA/MNA
Let’s break our boycott by going to the movies!Please go to the theatre nearest to you to support Unplanned on opening night (July 12th) or on opening weekend. A strong attendance in theatres will increase the chances that more showings will be added.Please invite others to join you such as your family, friends and even your elected officials (Members of Parliament, MLAs, MPPs, MNAs)! You never know who this film might impact profoundly. Even those who are pro-choice may be interested in attending with you.For a list of theatres showing the movie please visit www.unplannedfilm.com/canadaContinue to check back as the list is constantly being updated.You can also call your local theatre directly to find out if they are showing it.A PERSONAL INVITE TO PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU & HIS WIFELast night we invited Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sofie, to watch the movie with us! Help us get the message to him. 🙂 CLICK HERE TO SEE & RETWEET
|STEP 2: PRAY AND FAST |
We are continuing to pray and fast through July 18th (the first week of showings) for the greatest impact possible. If you believe in the power of prayer and fasting, please join in.Prayer and fasting will make a powerful impact, guaranteed.
STEP 3: SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Let’s share our experiences! Please help fuel the movement by tweeting photos & videos of your movie night. Do selfies, “groupies” (group pictures) and share how the movie impacted you after you see it.
When you post please use the hashtag: #canadaunplanned
Please also tag: @cbc @ctv @justinpjtrudeau @andrewjscheer
STEP 4: LOVE THE PROTESTERS AND THE HATERS
Remember, the greatest is LOVE.At this moment of controversy in our nation (over the film) let’s not underestimate the power of showing love to those who expect us to show hate.We encourage you to LOVE LOVE LOVE any protestors that you encounter at the theatres. Consider bringing coffee and treats to bless them as well.Showing kindness does not mean you agree, it just means that you have self control and compassion. This will speak louder than any debate.Perhaps offer to buy any protestors or opponents a ticket to see the movie with you if they seem open to it.
STEP 5: LOVE THE THEATRES
Let’s also encourage the theatres that have courageously stepped forward to show the film.Take a moment to e-mail theatre owners or drop them a kind note, or box of chocolates when you buy your ticket. Encourage those working the ticket booth as well and consider offering them coffee.There is no doubt that they may be experiencing a lot of animosity right now from those who opposed the film.Also take a moment to thank Landmark and Cineplex for showing the film and encourage Cineplex to open more screens so more Canadians can have the choice to see Unplanned. (Currently Cineplex is only opening a small amount of theatres for a limited time. This could change if we continue to press it.)

|WHAT ABOUT THE THEATRES THAT HAVE CANCELLED?|
Some theatres, like in Salmon Arm, have cancelled because of threats and harassment. This breaks our hearts. Please encourage these theatres and pray for them.Others have cancelled because they are effectively choosing to censor this message in spite of the fact that Canadians want to see it. This is not ok.The leaders of the Canada Wants Unplanned movement will be monitoring very closely which theatres cancel, and why. This is all unfolding before our eyes and are carefully considering our course of action in response to this injustice.We will be issuing a statement likely within the next week regarding how we will be responding to the censorship that some theatres have been executing. Please stay tuned.
