Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy is set to host a special screening of the hit film, “Sound of Freedom” this week in Washington, D.C., where he will be joined by the film’s star actor, Jim Caviezel, and the man who inspired the film, Tim Ballard.
Last week, McCarthy announced that he had kicked off bipartisan movie nights in Washington with the hope that it could “improve the culture in Congress.”
“We kicked off with a screening of ‘Lincoln’ with opening remarks from the author of ‘Team of Rivals,’” he wrote on Twitter.
According to event information shared by conservative commentator and Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec, the screening of “Sound of Freedom” will be held on Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m., starting with a reception and photo line with the cast and crew.
A pre-screening conversation will take place roughly an hour later, where Speaker McCarthy will chat with “special guests” Caviezel and Ballard. The movie will be screened soon after.
“Sound of Freedom” rocketed to success upon its release in early July. To date, it has earned more than $100 million at the box office, RSBN reported.
Last week, President Donald Trump hosted a special screening of the anti-sex trafficking film at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Trump told his guests that after viewing the film, he understood why it was doing “so well.” He remarked, “It’s setting records, by the way. It’s [beating] some of the biggest movies out – summer blockbusters; it’s knocking the socks off of them, so that’s pretty good.”
“Sound of Freedom” centers on telling the true story of Tim Ballard, the founder of Operation Underground Railroad, an organization that is dedicated to rescuing children from the evils of sex trafficking around the globe.
Caviezel has openly voiced his support for President Donald Trump’s reelection in 2024, declaring that the 45th president would “go after human traffickers.”
