The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Littleton and the Lyric Cinema Cafe in Fort Collins have announced showings of the Sony Pictures comedy that has ignited an international incident with North Korea.

Sony has authorized theaters to show "The Interview" after national chains dropped the North Korea satire last week.

Sony's cancelation of the movie following terrorist threats from hackers drew widespread criticism, including from President Barack Obama.

The FBI has said the attacks came from North Korea.

The general manager of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Littleton says the theaters are standing up for freedom of expression.
