Atlanta, GA (WGCL) — The Plaza Theatre has announced they will be showing “The Interview” on Christmas Day.

The theater will be one of the few in the nation to open the film.

It is unclear how they will be showing the movie since Sony canceled the theatrical release.

Sony insists it has only canceled the Christmas Day release and that it has been “actively surveying alternatives” to release the film on a different platform.

It’s been four weeks since a hacker group calling itself “Guardians of Peace” crippled Sony Pictures’ computer systems and began leaking emails and data, insisting that the Seth Rogen North Korea satire not be released. The hacking escalated to terrorist threats against theaters showing the film. On Friday, the FBI officially named North Korea as the source of the hacking attacks.

The movie will run Christmas Day through New Year’s Day.

On Christmas Day, show times are 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., and 9:35 p.m.

The Plaza, located at 1049 Ponce De Leon Ave North, has been in operation since 1939.
