“Out Here in Kansas,” a documentary that explores the relationship between gay people and Christianity, is getting an encore screening in Wichita.

The film was screened at Roxy’s Downtown, 412 1/2 E. Douglas, last month and will be screened again Saturday. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling 316-265-4400. Advance tickets are $5. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $8.

Food and drinks will be available at Roxy’s during the screening.

Attendees will also get a chance to talk with the filmmakers, including writer/director Adam Knapp, a Wichita State graduate of 1993. The film focuses on two articles Knapp wrote as a journalist at The Wichita Eagle and Andover American, written several years apart, about Burt Humburg, an All-American football player who came out as gay. The film explores the relationship between Humburg and his pastor, Joe Wright, who helped make gay marriage illegal in Kansas in 2005.
