Lionsgate Films at Ladd

Recently Ladd-Peebles Sports and Entertainment Complex was used as a hub for the filming in Mobile of the upcoming movie, Jesus Revolution. The film stars Kelsey Grammer and Jonathan Roumie of The Chosen and is the spiritual awakening, which took place in the sixties/early seventies. The filmmakers, the Erwin Brothers, also were behind the movies, I Can Only Imagine and American Underdog starring Dennis Quaid. The Jesus movement was the focus of a Time Magazine cover story in June 1971 as seen below.
