WARWICK — This month marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, sparked by Martin Luther’s 95 theses nailed to the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany, on Oct. 31, 1517.

The legacy of Luther’s conscience cannot be understated — it is the impetus for all manner of religious and philosophical developments that have defined the modern world. It also had political and cultural effects.

Valley Bible Church at 46 Ronald Reagan Blvd. in Merchant Square, Warwick, is showing the 2003 film, "Luther," about Martin Luther on Friday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m.

There is no charge. Light refreshments will be served.

According to publicity for the film, this epic movie follows the life of Martin Luther (Joseph Fiennes), author of the then-controversial 95 Theses and founding father of the Protestant church, who, with the courage of his convictions, faced the wrath of the church in the 16th century. Alfred Molina co-stars as Johann Tetzel, with Jonathan Firth, Claire Cox and Sir Peter Ustinov rounding out the cast as Girolamo Aleander, Katharina von Bora and Fredrick the Wise, respectively.
