The film, which was shot over the summer and is directed by Nick Knight, will show for a limited one-week engagement exclusively in IMAX theaters. The film features performances of 13 songs arranged by West and performed by his Sunday Service choir, according to a release. 

Shows begin at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Fairlane, Livonia and Ypsilanti theaters.
