Hannibal-LaGrange University will be hosting three free showings of Alex Kendrick’s Courageous. Movies will be shown in the Parker Theatre of the Roland Fine Arts Center.  Movie dates are: Saturday, September 22 at 7:00 pm, Sunday, October 14 at 3:00 pm, and Saturday, November 10 at 7:00 pm.

Writer, director, and lead actor, Alex Kendrick, will be the guest speaker at the 71st Annual Hannibal-LaGrange University Booster Banquet on Friday, November 16th.

Courageous is the most recent and most successful of the Sherwood Pictures films. The movie centers on the lives of four Memphis police officers who, in the midst of tragedy, begin to question their faith and roles as husbands and fathers. Together, they make a decision that changes their lives. Woven with humor and founded on Biblical truth, this storyline holds something for everyone.

HLGU’s 71st Annual Booster Banquet will be held on Friday, November 16 at 7:00 pm in the Mabee Sports Complex. Doors will open at 5:30 pm and the meal will be served at 7:00 pm.

Price for a general admission ticket (purchased before Nov. 1, 2012) is $60. If purchased on or after November 1, 2012 general admission ticket pricing will be $80. Once again this year an Executive Ticket for the Booster Banquet is available. This special ticket includes reserved parking, admission to a special private reception with Alex from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm, and a special reserved seat at the banquet. Attendees of the private reception will be able to meet Kendrick and have a photo taken with him. Price for an Executive Ticket is $150.

New this, year to the Booster Banquet ticket options, are Table Sponsors. “In addition to the General Admission and Executive Tickets we have decided to offer our guests the opportunity to sponsor a table,” stated Lauren Youse, Director of Alumni Services. The Table Sponsor Ticket Package includes: 8 Executive Tickets at a reduced rate and special, reserved seating at the banquet. Cost for the Table Sponsor package is $1000.
