Tickets Selling Out for “The Interview”

Still1224_00001EUGENE, Ore. — Movie fans are snapping up tickets to see “The Interview” on opening night at the Bijou Arts Cinema in Eugene.

Thursday’s 10:30 p.m. screening is already sold out, so the theater added another showing at 8:00 p.m.

The Bijou is one of many theaters throughout the country deciding to show the movie after Sony pulled it. The U.S. government says North Korea hacked Sony because the movie depicts the killing of North Korea’s president.

President Obama said Sony made a mistake canceling it, and now after plenty of public outcry local moviegoers are excited to see it.

“I’m excited it’s playing. I have to try and talk my friends into coming back tomorrow,” said Lisa Sragobicz.

“I think a lot of people think oh they only picked it up because it’s controversy, but not really. Like we got a chance to show it and it’s going to be good for our theater and it gets to play in Eugene now, so I think that’s awesome,” said Michelle Nordella, Bijou Arts Cinema co-owner.

Tickets to the Bijou shows are available online and at the box office. The theater will show the movie for one week.
