MAUMEE, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - A special showing of the documentary "I Am" will take place Saturday, May 26 at 2 p.m. at the Maumee Indoor Theatre.

In the 1990s Tom Shadyac was one of the most successful directors in Hollywood. From "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" to "The Nutty Professor" and "Liar, Liar," he was making the kind of huge hit comedies studios dream of.

Then Shadyac was in a bad bicycle accident that changed everything. His physical injuries healed but the experience changed his outlook on life. He sold his mansion, moved into a trailer, gave away his money and possessions and began thinking about a movie. He describes "I Am" as a probing exploration of our world, what's wrong with it, and what we can do to make it better.

View the trailer through a YouTUbe link.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the following locations as well as at the door.

**Lite The Way
**Prism Glass Works
**In Process
**Harmony in Life
**The Silver Living Galley in Waterville
**Angela's Angels and Antiques in Sylvania

The theatre is located in the 600 block of Conant Street at the Anthony Wayne Trail. The movie is being shown in partial sponsorship with the MultiFaith Council of Northwest Ohio.
