It turns out James Franco and Seth Rogen’s controversial film “The Interview” will be coming out after all, despite threats from a hacker group claiming “9/11-style attacks” on theatres that screen the film. Joining other art house movie theatres is Tucson's own Loft Cinema. The movie will premiere on Christmas and continue in a regular engagement starting on Friday, Dec. 26.

Jeff Yanc, programming director for the Loft, said he's "really excited to have 'The Interview.' It's a great opportunity for free expression."

Yanc said the team at the Loft had been working on securing the film since last week.

"Sony said it would be available to independent theaters and that's us," Yanc said.

According to Entertainment Weekly, “The Interview” has an unreasonably high IMDB rating right now, despite no one actually getting to see it. Thanks to 4chan, the film has a perfect 10 rating from over 35,000 votes. Whether that perfect rating will keep once audiences actually view the film remains to be seen.

You can buy tickets and get more information on showtimes by visiting The Loft's website.
