Cold Spring’s Quarry Cinema To Show ‘The Interview’
COLD SPRING (AP) - Sony Pictures Entertainment has announced a limited theatrical release of "The Interview" beginning Thursday, putting the comedy back into theaters.
Quarry Cinema in Cold Spring is among the small handful of theaters in Minnesota planning to run the movie. Their website says they'll have five showings of the movie tomorrow (Thursday) at: noon, 2:15 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m, and at 9:00 p.m.
Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton said Tuesday that Seth Rogen's North Korea farce "will be in a number of theaters on Christmas Day." He said Sony also is continuing its efforts to release the film on more platforms and in more theaters.
After hackers last Wednesday threatened violence against theaters showing the film, the nation's largest theater chains dropped the film. Sony soon thereafter canceled the film's release altogether.
But that decision drew widespread criticism, including from President Barack Obama.
