HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Hartford theater has been doing brisk business as moviegoers lined up to watch “The Interview,” dismissing North Korean outrage and the response by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Scores of moviegoers arrived Thursday at Spotlight Theatres, one of two in Connecticut to show the film satirizing the isolated communist regime in North Korea. Several customers said they’d watch the movie even if it hadn’t prompted a cyberattack on Sony, leading the studio to initially pull the film.

Ken Stein of Coventry said the uproar over the movie was a “little ridiculous.”

Sharon Stabile of West Hartford said she and her husband, Shane, enjoy going to the movies and “nobody tells us what we’re going to see.”

More than 300 theaters nationwide are screening the film Christmas Day and it’s being streamed simultaneously on the Internet.
