The movie that has dominated headlines recently is coming to local theaters.

Sony originally pulled ‘The Interview’ from theaters after threats, but after many criticized that move saying it violated freedom of speech, Sony has decided to release the film to a limited number of theaters and online rental services.

Reviews on the movie so far have been mixed.

“I loved it.”

“It was pretty stupid that’s for sure.”

“There’s second-rate movies all around… and that’s what this is.”

“It’s very heroic. The movie needs to be seen. It’s a very important movie.”

Locally, the Cable Car Cinema in Providence will be showing the movie beginning Friday night. The first showing at 7:30 is sold out and there are a limited number of seats left for the other showings, which run through New Year’s Eve.

The Route 1 Pub in North Attleboro is also showing the film, and has several showings scheduled for the weekend.

Cinema World in Lincoln will be showing the film as well.

If you don’t feel like heading to theaters, the movie can be purchased and viewed on YouTube.
