We don't yet know which theaters will agree to show the film, but we're guessing it's the independently owned theaters that will be the first to jump on the opportunity!
Make sure to check with your local cinemas! If not, it looks like Sony is also releasing the film On Demand!
Michael Lynton, chairman and CEO of Sony Entertainment, said:
"We have never given up on releasing 'The Interview' and we're excited our movie will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day. At the same time, we are continuing our efforts to secure more platforms and more theaters so that this movie reaches the largest possible audience."
