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.

Congratulations! You the man!
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.

Also at independent theaters in Berkeley CA and Columbia SC, to name a couple--independent theaters rock and rule!

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.

:D

Ah, if only I could see it. Unfortunately, at the moment, I'm surrounded by sissies. Might have to cross the state border for this one.... or wait until it hits Redbox.

I admit that I had no interest in seeing this movie. I still don't, but will probably buy a ticket just to support flipping the bird to a group that thinks that they can dictate what our choices are.

It's bud time
Do they allow alcoholic beverages at the Cocteau?

Re: It's bud time
We have a full bar. Beer, wine, mead, cocktails.

For THE INTERVIEW, we'll offer an All-American special of a hot dog and a beer.
