BROOKLYN - A new church in Downtown Brooklyn is holding its services in an unlikely spot: a movie theater.

Liberty Church held its first service inside the United Artists Cinema on Court Street. Congregants sat in theater seats instead of pews, and the large screen provided a space to emphasize words and phrases that were part of the church's teachings.

Pastor Paul Andrew says it is a community church for all people that provides a friendly atmosphere and a value on family, and it even offers Spanish translation.

Brooklyn residents say they used to travel all the way to Manhattan to attend Liberty Church and are happy they get to be part of the community close to home.

It marks Liberty's third location in New York City, and it has other locations in London and Zimbabwe.
