The movie that North Korea doesn’t want you to see, “The Interview” is coming to Atlanta’s Plaza Theatre, opening Christmas Day. After Sony pulled the picture from the theatres, an organization of independent movie theatres named the Art House Convergence circulated a petition to Sony announcing that a number of independent exhibitors were willing to show the film. Sony then allowed the film to be shown on over 300 screens across the country. Most of them like the Plaza Theatre, which just celebrated it’s 75th anniversary, are independently run theatres.

The comedy stars James Franco as the star of a popular celebrity tabloid Tv show called “Skylark Tonight”. Seth Rogan, who co-wrote and directed the film, plays Franco’s producer. When they discover that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the most unlikely candidates, to ‘take out’ Kim Jong-un.
