TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona-based movie theater chain says it will screen “The Interview” on Christmas Day.

Harkins Theatres announced its plan Tuesday to start showing the Sony Pictures comedy starting Christmas Day.

In a statement, the company says the movie will play at one location in Tempe but it is hopeful that additional locations will be added.

Showtimes are currently only planned for Thursday through Saturday.

The Scottsdale-based theater chain operates 30 theaters in five states across the Southwest.

Sony has also authorized theaters in Texas and Georgia to show “The Interview” after national chains dropped the North Korea satire last week. Sony’s cancellation of the movie following terrorist threats from hackers drew widespread criticism, including from President Barack Obama.

The FBI has said the attacks on Sony came from North Korea.
