Sony backtracks, will release ‘The Interview’ to some theaters

After being criticized by President Obama and many in Hollywood for self-censorship, Sony Pictures has announced it will release ‘The Interview’ after all. Although the big theater chains still seem uninterested in showing the film, a number of independent theaters are interested and plan to screen it. It will initially be available to watch in two to three hundred smaller theaters.
