A popular tradition among American Christians during the holy month of April is to watch the classic 1956 movie “The Ten Commandments”. If you’re out of the loop this year and wondering how or where you can watch this classic film, we’ve got you covered.
The 1956 movie directed by Cecile B. DeMille stars Charlton Heston as the Israelite patriarch Moses. As most Bible readers know, Moses is called by God to go up against Pharaoh (Yul Brynner) to free His people from Egyptian slavery.
DeMille’s sweeping biblical epic has influenced a long line of other ambitious biblical dramas.
“The Ten Commandments” is a favorite among Christians and other viewers. So you can find the movie almost anywhere to watch online or stream. If you’re looking for a physical copy of the classic film, you can buy the DVD on Amazon at 50% off (at the time of this writing).
