Rescue Mission in red-carpet event for new movie


The film “Same Kind of Different as Me,” based on the bestselling book, will be released in theaters nationwide next Friday. Two days before that, Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley will present a red-carpet fundraising event at Cinema South in Boardman to raise awareness and support for the shelter.

The film will be screened at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Seating is limited to 500 guests. With a gift of $15, submitted at, donors will receive a ticket to the Wednesday event.

“Same Kind of Different as Me” tells the true story of international art dealer Ron Hall (played by Greg Kinnear), who befriends a homeless man (Djimon Hounsou) in hopes of saving his struggling marriage to Debbie (Renee Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all of them on a remarkable journey.

With much of the story taking place at a rescue mission, Pure Flix Entertainment and Paramount Pictures have provided this opportunity to help shelters.
