A very special treat!  Please gather in the Imperial Room for a free private pre-release screening of the major motion picture, Same Kind of Different as Me.  You won't want to miss this moving film based on the book of the same title starring Greg Kinnear, Renee Zellweger, Jon Voight, Djimon Hounsou and Olivia Holt, telling the story of an international art dealer, a homeless person, and the woman who bound them together. We are very grateful to Carmel Communications for providing this beautiful faith-based film to us for our Convention attendees.
