MIAMI (CBSMiami) –The film North Korea did not want you to see, will be shown in select theaters on Christmas Day.
The Swap Shop Drive-In, in LauderHill will show the film starting at 7 o’clock on Thursday.
On Tuesday, Sony Pictures backtracked and and announced a limited release. The company’s decision came after backlash from President Obama and the public.
Alen Wilson manages the Drive-In. He is happy his boss decided to show Seth Rogen’s Comedy “The Interview” despite threats of 9-11 style terrorist attacks.
“We shouldn’t have to be afraid of what we show and what we do,” said Wilson.
The terror threats were issued because the movie is about two journalists who are handed the task of assassinating North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un. That plot line had the North Korean Dictator disturbed and FBI investigators said he wanted to shut the film down.
“We believe that there shouldn’t be a dictator telling people what to do and everybody has the right to speak up and how they feel and that deals with all art form,” said Wilson.
Swap Shop Drive-in customers are rallying behind the owners decision.
“I think the swap shop is a great place and If they have decided to show it I support that,” said Yavonka Young.
President Obama praised Sony’s decision to release the movie.
