Three theaters in Kentucky — in Georgetown, Pikeville and Louisville — to show 'The Interview'

Three theaters in Kentucky will be among about 200 nationwide screening The Interview on Christmas Day.

Theatres of Georgetown, 401 Outlet Center Drive, scheduled showings for 3 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

In Pikeville, Riverfill Cinemas 10 listed show times of 6:50 p.m. and 9:20 p.m.

Village 8 Theatres in Louisville also was scheduled to show the movie.

The political satire about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong Un prompted a cyber attack on Sony Entertainment and a threat of violence if the movie wasn't pulled.

Sony announced last week that it wouldn't show the movie, but the studio reversed course this week after public outcry and criticism from President Barack Obama.

The movie also was made available for rental Wednesday on digital platforms, including Google Play and YouTube Movies. The movie costs $5.99 to stream and $14.99 to buy.
