GALLATIN, Tenn. (BP) – The entire fourth season of “The Chosen,” a theatrical biopic of Jesus, is in theaters March 28 – 30 with ticket discounts, Engage Media Partners has announced.

See in Season Four the death of John the Baptist, Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, and an increasing uproar from Jesus’ enemies. But the dramatization of Holy Week is left for a future season, according to reviews of the popular series that has drawn accusations of extrabiblical content.

Watch episodes 1-3 in one offering March 28, episodes 4-6 in one movie March 29, and the final two episodes as one film March 30 at several theaters nationally and internationally. The March 28 and 29th viewings will include five-minute intermissions.

Discounts include all three movies for $30 at Cinemark locations, all three for $15 at Marcus Theaters, and a 50 percent discount through the Fandango movie ticket app with the code THECHOSENSEASON4. Each discount code can only be used on one transaction.

“Because it’s such a big discount,” Engage Media said of the Fandango offer, “there’s a limited number of half-off tickets. IF you can afford full price, let’s please save the discount for folks who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go.”
