You'll Be Able to See The Interview in Houston After All

Well this is a surprising turn of events. Earlier today Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League announced that Sony is authorizing screenings of the previously pulled The Interview on Christmas day.
Currently the Drafthouse's website is being absolutely hammered as people try and pick up tickets to see the film, so if you're going to the digital ticket route be patient. No word, as of yet, on any other Houston theaters that will be screening the film; we'll update as we know more.
(Lest you think we're playing with your emotions, here's a tweet from League confirming that the film is coming to Houston.)
This has to be seen as a win for cinema and artistic expression, no matter if the movie is actually any good or not. Our Stephanie Zacharek said in her review, "The Interview will go down in history for all the wrong reasons, stirring up an awful lot of trouble for very little payoff." Right or wrong, that audiences will get the chance to decide for themselves is a win for everyone.
