Where to see The Interview if you live in Chicago

Written by

After pulling The Interview's Christmas release last week amidst threats of violence against theaters that played Seth Rogen comedy, Sony Pictures has gone back on their decision, saying they will allow cinemas to screen the film after all. So far, none of Chicago's movie houses have announced screenings, but if you're looking for a chuckle this Christmas, the Hollywood Boulevard Cinemas in Woodridge has confirmed that it will screen the film starting on Christmas Day. If a hike to the suburbs seems to much, you can always catch one of these anti–North Korean streaming picks from the comfort of your couch.

UPDATE 12/24/14: The Interview's Facebook page now has a complete list of theaters showing the film, including more suburban locations in Arlington Heights and Buffalo Grove, though there are still no theaters in Chicago proper screening the movie this weekend. Additionally, Sony will make The Interview available for rent ($5.99) or purchase ($14.99) via Google Play, Xbox Video and YouTube starting today.
