'The Interview' To Play Select Theaters on Christmas Day, Will Be Available Via VOD

In the latest update from the major Sony hack designed to shut down The Interview, Sony is now allowing several theaters to screen the movie on Christmas day.

Two independent movie theaters, the Plaza Atlanta theater and Alamo Drafthouse, announced the news on Twitter after many major movie houses said last week that they would not be showing the controversial film after terror threats came through.

THR is also reporting that Sony will offer the film as a VOD option so it can be available to the greater public.

The Interview stars James Franco and Seth Rogen, and was originally scheduled to be released on Christmas Day before the major hack shut the operation down.
