We Got It!

Just got off the phone with Jon Bowman, the booker at the Jean Cocteau Cinema.  Jon just got off the phone with Sony.

THE INTERVIEW will open at the Cocteau on Christmas Day.  Four shows: 2pm, 4:30, 7pm, and 9:30.

We were otherwise going to be closed on Christmas.  We're opening just for this film, and will devote the whole day to it.

We have booked a full run, so THE INTERVIEW will continue to run for two weeks, in rotation with the other films that we had already committed too before this all broke.

We may schedule some midnight shows if there's enough demand.

So come join us, and celebrate Christmas... and free speech... with Seth Rogen.

CHRISTMAS EVE ADDENDUM: All four of our Christmas Day showings are completely sold out.  Tickets for the Friday shows are going fast, and those will probably sell out as well.  We are adding extra shows on Saturday to accomodate the demand.

Lol yes. And they can't even hack into GRRM's computer since that's not connected to the internet. :-P

Congrats George
Sounds like something that will sell out pretty quick.

Will "Santa R. R. Martin" make a special appearance?

Re: Congrats George
Are you sure you want that? That Santa only brings pain and death to your favorite characters instead of presents.

Thank you Mr. Martin. Will definitely make it to SF to see the show. For free speech. And the popcorn. Mostly the popcorn.

Hey George, I have a friend in North Korea and he told me they also forbade you from giving us Winds of Winter! :-)

So happy to hear this. I have been following this story and your words on this matter somewhat closely. Happy to hear the film is coming to our corner of the country.

Well done sir and thank you.

Really happy to hear Sony coming to its senses (sort of) and that you're screening it! I'd definitely come watch it there if I lived within 100 miles, but sadly as a Florida cat I cannot.

I feel bad for the employees who had to change their Christmas plans so close to Christmas because they have to work now... I hope they're being compensated well.

don't worry
I think we ended up mostly w/ volunteers who weren't 'doing' a big Xmas thing anyway. We really only need 4 people per shift to run the theater, 5 if we have 2 on concessions. (I'm a Pagan, and when I worked retail, I didn't mind working on other religion's holidays because it meant more to them to be home for their holiday than it did for me).

Looks like we have a full theater all day and night, and the popcorn will keep poppin until we close.

Great news! I hope you have a busy few weeks at the theater and am glad no one is keep this film locked away.

George, good on you for being outspoken on this and for showing it. There may be some justice in this world left, after all.

HAHAHAHAH I was just saying to my partner, "I bet GRRM got his copy of the Interview. They will run it on X-mas. Let me go check his (Not a)blog..." GREAT NEWS! If anyone could pull it off it is you!

Congrats on fighting the good fight! This story at Deadline Hollywood credits you with being one of the main reasons Sony caved.

Ever so slightly surreal, reading this news on LJ at about the same time that I'm hearing it on the BBC. Congratulations! May you have a full and cheerful house, whatever the quality of the movie itself.
