EchoLight Cinema with Toni Lampley

Last month we were made aware of something called EchoLight Cinemas. We asked around and found that it is an evangelical group that asks churches to become a "movie theater" and show high quality films with a religious bent. Toni Lampley is the contact here in Iowa.  We asked her to come by and help us better understand what's the story.
