Multiple Theaters Say They Will Screen ‘The Interview’ On Christmas
The once ill-fated Sony movie, The Interview, may actually reach movie screens after all.
The Plaza Theater in Atlanta and The Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas/Fort Worth have both stated that they will be showing the controversial comedy on Christmas day, the original release date for the film.
The founder of The Alamo Drafthouse, Tim League, boasted the exciting news on Twitter:
James Wallace, creative manager and programmer at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Dallas/Fort Worth theater, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the film would be showing at that location. He also said that tickets would be on sale very soon.
THR has details of the release:
The Plaza Atlanta is set to screen the film beginning on Dec. 25 at multiple times throughout the day on two screens, according to a statement on its social media accounts.
The Plaza Atlanta Facebook confirmed the news and even listed showtimes.
A few weeks ago both of these independent theaters attempted to show their displeasure with Sony’s decision to cancel the debut of The Interview by defiantly airing Paramount’s Team America: World Police. However Paramount did not allow them to show the Trey Parker and Matt Stone puppet movie from 2004 which also slammed North Korea.
Let’s see if this stirring news tempts larger nationwide theaters to screen the movie that has been hijacked by hackers.
You may now commence the “USA! USA! USA!” chant.
