NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- "October Baby" and "Monumental," two theatrical releases popular among faith audiences, are expanding this weekend.

October Baby will open in more than 200 new theaters this weekend, while Kirk Cameron's documentary Monumental will be playing in more than 25 theaters. A list of October Baby's new theaters is available at http://octoberbabymovie.net/theaters, while a list of Monumental's theaters can be viewed at http://www.monumentalmovie.com/theaterlistings.html (where moviegoers also can request the film be shown in their town).

In its opening weekend in March, October Baby grossed $1.7 million in limited release, good enough for a No. 8 finish -- and a No. 3 spot on a per-theater average. The movie tells the story of a young woman who learns she is the survivor of a failed abortion.

Meanwhile, the patriotic-themed "Monumental" had an impressive opening in its one-night showing in 550 theaters March 27, grossing $1.23 million for a $2,400 per-screen average -- a per-screen figure that places it close to some of the most successful faith-based films ever. Monumental's numbers may be even more impressive than they first appear, because it played only once that night, whereas Courageous averaged $2,809 its first Saturday, playing multiple times. In Monumental, Cameron follows the footsteps of America's founders, first the Pilgrims (he travels to England) and then America's forefathers, interviewing experts and historians along the way.
