At first, LDS officials thought their newest feature film would best be shown in the Legacy Theater in the church-owned Joseph Smith Memorial Building in downtown Salt Lake City.
After all, that theater has been the venue for previous Mormon-produced movies such as "Legacy" and "Testaments."
But LDS apostle David A. Bednar announced Tuesday that church leaders have decided to unveil their next project, "Meet the Mormons," first in selected theaters nationwide followed by showings on YouTube and other Internet sites.
The film was shot on locations in the U.S., Costa Rica and Nepal as well as other sites. It examines "the very diverse lives of six devout members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."
