Sony is making The Interview available at a limited number of theaters on Christmas Day. The studio initially cancelled plans for its release after hacker attacks and other threats to public safety caused major theater chains to refuse to show it.
George R.R. Martin criticized the decision on his blog and offered to show the film in his own Jean Cocteau Theatre in Santa Fe. Now that several independent theaters, including the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, have announced Christmas Day showings, he is trying to arrange a screening in Santa Fe too.
Update 12/23/2014: And the answer is — YES!
George R.R. Martin says The Interview will open at the Cocteau on Christmas Day — four showings. “We were otherwise going to be closed on Christmas. We’re opening just for this film, and will devote the whole day to it…. So come join us, and celebrate Christmas… and free speech… with Seth Rogen.”
The movie is booked for a full run, so The Interview will play there for two weeks in rotation with the other films they’d already committed to.
