Double Feature: Ben Hur & The Story of Moses
Charlton Heston, who received an ACADEMY AWARD® in the role of Ben-Hur, returns to the defining work of his career, with this spectacular new animated version of the best-selling literary classic by Lew Wallace.
During the first century A.D., Judah Ben-Hur is a young Hebrew prince thrown into slavery by the Romans after a tragic accident, who wins his way back to his home and family on a heroic adventure of discovery. Judah’s love for a beautiful slave girl is threatened by the bitter conflict dividing two former friends, and his triumph is set against the backdrop of the historic struggle between a captive people and a mighty empire. From an exciting sea battle and a thundering chariot race to the dramatic events surrounding the life and death of Christ, this is an epic tale of love, redemption, forgiveness and faith to captivate viewers of all ages.

Story Of Moses
The Old Testament is filled with inspiring stories. But the story of Moses is, perhaps, the greatest of them all. Now the story of Moses has been brought to life in a beautifully animated film that will appeal to your entire family. As the story begins, we learn that the Israelites--God’s chosen people--have been enslaved by the ruler of Egypt. For many years, they labor without reward. But finally, God decides that He will put an end to their oppression. He calls on one man--Moses--to lead His people to freedom. Moses is initially reluctant. He does not consider himself to be a leader of men. But he has faith in God. And at last he obeys the Lord’s command. With God’s help, Moses leads the Israelites out of Egypt, across the Red Sea and into the wilderness. There, they experience hardships far greater than any they had known in Egypt. And many of them threaten to rebel. But Moses does not give up. And when he receives from God two stone tablets bearing the Ten Commandments, the people realize that Moses has indeed been acting in accordance with God’s will.
