After much controversy, The Interview did make it's Christmas debut after all. It showed at more than 300 independent theaters nationwide.
Here in Southern California, one of the film's stars, Seth Rogen, introduced the movie at the Cinefamily theater.
In Santa Fe, New Mexico, the film was introduced by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.
He owns the Jean Cocteau theater, a venue which showed The Interview four times on Christmas Day.
The showings have drawn sold-out crowds, said Jon Bowman, programmer for Jean Cocteau Cinema.
