Experience exclusive content during 30-minute pre-show and expert panel Q&A immediately following film presentation
DENVER – December 16, 2014 - Anyone with a passion for history, culture or religion won’t want to miss “Patterns of Evidence: Exodus,” presented in 600 select U.S. cinemas by Fathom Events and Thinking Man Films at 7 p.m. local time on Monday, January 19.
“Patterns of Evidence: Exodus” is an award-winning documentary by filmmaker Timothy Mahoney that chronicles an in-depth archaeological investigation in Egypt as his team attempts to corroborate the biblical text. The film explores one fundamental question: Is there any evidence that the Exodus story actually happened? Twelve years in the making, this provocative documentary reveals new or rarely seen evidence regarding the Israelites’ descent into slavery, their Exodus from Egypt and their ultimate conquest of the Promise Land. Although many scholars and archaeologists deny the validity of the Exodus story for lack of proof, “Patterns of Evidence: Exodus” builds a case that sheds new light on the story.
Moviegoers will have the opportunity to gain even more insight into the debate via the 30 minute pre-show at 6:30 p.m. local time when exclusive content will be shown, in addition to an expert panel discussion moderated by journalist Gretchen Carlson, host of “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson,” immediately following the film.
Tickets for “Patterns of Evidence: Exodus” are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be presented in 600 movie theaters around the country through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

“What started out as a crisis of my own faith led me on an incredible journey of discovery,” said filmmaker Tim Mahoney. “We are thrilled that ‘Patterns of Evidence: Exodus,’ a labor of love twelve years in the making, will be presented as a Fathom event that will allow people nationwide with an interest in history, culture or religion to experience it on the big screen.”
“’Patterns of Evidence: Exodus’ is an incredibly thought-provoking historical documentary,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “This event is sure to spark important conversation and a healthy debate.”
“What we’ve done with this film is to present the evidence, as we’ve uncovered it over these past twelve years, and let viewers draw their own conclusions,” said executive producer David Wessner. “It’s not a puffy documentary; it’s an entertaining presentation of a boat-load of scientific and historical facts which shed new, important light on this ancient but most important story.”
Media Producer Spencer Proffer brought the project to Fathom via Meteor 17 and serves as the event producer.

About Patterns of Evidence: Exodus (film)
What is the validity of history found in the Bible? Is it fact or fiction? What does the hard evidence really have to say about the foundational story of the Old Testament: the Exodus out of Egypt? “Patters of Evidence: Exodus” is an in-depth investigation by documentary filmmaker Tim Mahoney searches for answers to these questions amid startling new finds that may change traditional views of history and the Bible.
Encouraged by several scholars, Mahoney decided to take a scientific approach. He began to look for evidence of the Exodus story wherever it might be found in history. This path took him in a completely new direction challenging the traditional views about the ancient past and the Bible. Ultimately, he was forced to make a decision, whether to yield to the giants of archaeology and give up the investigation or stick with an amazing pattern of evidence that matched the sequence of events recorded in the Bible.
