Update on The Interview!

Maybe you’ve heard about Sony being hacked by North Korean hackers, and all of the damage they’ve caused, trying to get the movie, The Interview, suppressed. Well, we at the Vernon Plaza Theater think that’s a lot of bunk. Even though we’re committed through the rest of the year, we’re happy to take The Interview and show it in Vernon. This is a free speech issue and we will not be bulled by a totalitarian regime half a world away. Granted, it’s rated R and most especially not for kids, but this is a free speech issue at the very least. Look for us to get the movie in Early January, if not sooner.

COMING SOON DETAILS!
Okay, what’s coming up is pretty much all we’re going to have until the end of the year. Don’t worry: it’s all good movies. But it may not be something you were hoping we’d open. Don’t worry, though: we’re going to get all of the good ones. We still want to show Big Hero 6 and Interstellar, but they will have to wait until January. So will Unbroken and The Interview. So, don’t panic if you get caught up in the Holiday Spirit! We’ll have stuff for you to watch when you come down off of the sugar plum rush and all that egg nog.

OPEN CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY
That’s right, True Believers! We’ll have limited shows on both Christmas Eve (so you can get that last bit of shopping done without prying eyes) and Christmas Day (because everyone needs a break from Uncle Junior’s hunting stories, am I right, folks?), and just because we really like you, we’re bringing in a New Movie for Christmas Day: Night at the Museum 3: The Secret of the Tomb! That’s right, something new in your Christmas stocking, from your friends at the Plaza!
