UPDATE The Interview: Manhattan’s 2 Big Indie Theaters Say No, Quad Cancels, But Cinema Village Says Yes

SECOND UPDATE 12/24: Quad 4 cancelled. Cinema Village says the first 7 shows are “pretty much” sold out. They have it for a week. So it’s just ONE theater in all of Manhattan.

UPDATE: Cinema Village, on East 12th St., and the Quad 4, on West 13th St. will show the movie. They are very small. Cinema Village is a dank remnant of another era. Quad 4 is one of 4 screens in a small complex just bought by Charles Cohen of Cohen Media. Again, these are holdovers. But they’ll do. They’re more about making a statement than making money.

EARLIER: No theaters in Manhattan will be showing “The Interview” on Christmas Day. I spoke to both the Angelika and Landmark, and they are skipping it. In fact, as of right now, only 2 theaters in Queens have it listed. No other theaters in the entire five boros of New York City will be screening the assassination of Kim Il Jong. Ditto for Beverly Hills, although one chain in L.A.– Regency– is showing it, and one theater in Malibu, Agoura Hills. Austin, Texas seems very keen on it, as does the whole Alamo chain. Mostly “The Interview” will show up on VOD. The live reading on Saturday night at Treehouse Theater is still the only place to see a semblance of the film in New York.
