According to the Daily Beast, Paramount ordered the theaters not to show the movie.
People all over the country were outraged after Sony, and theater chains around the country, caved to the threats of North Korean hackers and canceled the release of 'The Interview'. One movie theater in Texas has decided it will not cower in fear to the threats.
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, in Dallas, Texas, said it had planned to show 'The Interview' despite the threats.
FOR THE RECORD: We were still going to show #TheInterviewMovie…— Alamo Drafthouse DFW (@AlamoDFW) December 17, 2014
But, after Sony pulled the plug, the theater decided to show another movie that mocks North Korea.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of Team America: World Police, the movie theater will offer free showings of the hilarious movie made by the creators of South Park. They will also be handing out American flags and decorating the theater with red, white and blue balloons and streamers.
