Moviegoers will get a dose of wellness and nutrition when “Eating You Alive” comes to U.S. movie theaters for a one-night event this April. Tackling one of the largest health concerns in the nation, food addiction, this powerful documentary reveals how chronic illnesses continue to spread through the food we eat, and more importantly, explains the simple ways people can prevent them.
Fathom Events and The Purjes Foundation present “Eating You Alive” on Thursday, April 5 at 7:00 p.m. local time. In addition to the feature content, which advocates and educates on the healing benefits of a plant-based/whole food diet, audiences will have the opportunity to learn how to live a healthier life via a packaged ten-step guide presented by cast physicians.
Tickets for “Eating You Alive” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 600 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).

Along with professional insights from several leading physicians and medical researchers, “Eating You Alive” features personal testimonies from celebrities such as James Cameron and his wife, Suzy Amis Cameron, plus Samuel L. Jackson, Penn Jillette and everyday individuals who have healed chronic diseases through a change of diet. “Eating You Alive” was directed by Paul Kennamer, Jr. and co-produced by Merrilee Jacobs.
