Free Sneak Preview of 'The Wayshower' at the Castro Theatre on Wednesday Night

Peter Stormare (Fargo) stars in The Wayshower, making its Northern California premiere on Wednesday night at the Castro Theatre.

"Running from mistakes in his past, a man finds a secret book with ancient powers – a tool that can give him the answers he seeks. But a dark force has been awoken, one that will stop at nothing to reclaim the sacred text. When the book is stolen, an age-old battle resumes. But [the man's] teacher, a 'Wayshower,' can only show him the path to victory, for he must win this epic battle on his own."

So describes John-Roger and Jsu Garcia's The Wayshower, a spiritual thriller slated for wide release in March 2012 that will make its Bay Area debut on Wednesday night at the Castro Theatre. John-Roger, the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 books including last year's Living the Spiritual Principles of Health and Well-Being, and Garcia, who starred in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, will co-host the 7:30 p.m. sneak preview and answer audience questions afterward.

Also in attendance: onetime Oscar nominee Sally Kirkland and Emmy winner Leigh Taylor-Young, who, among others scheduled to appear Wednesday at the Castro, star opposite Peter Stormare and Eric Roberts in this story of a near-mythic quest for enlightenment.
