Omaha moviegoers will get the chance to see ``A Long Way Off'' nearly a month before its national release when the Christian-themed movie premieres on Friday.

 The movie is a modern adaptation of the biblical story of the prodigal son. 

Omaha's Village Pointe theater was chosen to host the movie's premiere at 7 p.m. Friday because producers decided the city was a good fit for the religious movie. And two Omaha radio personalities _ KFAB's Andy Greenberg and Karen Sokolof Javitch _ appear in the movie and will host the premiere.

The movie will also be screened Friday at a church in Milton, Florida, and at a church in Syracuse, New York.

 The film is slated for national release in up to 250 theaters on June 15.
