Well, it really got down to the wire, but Tim took care of everything, presenting the legal information to all the required people, who ultimately decided that cancelling Wallace and Gromit until a license could be obtained was the only course of action to take. It is unfortunate that all the kids looking forward to the event couldn't go, but I'm sure that as soon as they legal up, they'll do it for real.
I hope that this situation can help out other people who may be unwittingly breaking the law in the name of God. If your church shows movies, I implore you to find out if they have the proper license to do so, and if not, legal up. As one of my heroes would say, "It's the right thing to do."
