The Roxy to Screen The Interview

The interviewPFS at the Roxy is one of the first theaters in Philadelphia to screen Sony’s banned-then-kind-of-released The Interview, starting on New Year’s Day.

The comedy, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, follows two TV guys who go to North Korea to try to snag an interview with Kim Jong-un. When the CIA finds out about their plans, however, they’re recruited to take out the eccentric ruler.

Rotten Tomatoes only gives the film a 52 percent rating, and critics haven’t been to favorable, some calling it more of a triumph of free speech than a smart, witty comedy. But hey, it’s worth it to see what the hype was (or wasn’t) all about.

The Interview fires up at The Roxy on Thursday, January 1st, and will run at 11 p.m. each night through January 8th. More information here.
