TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Michael Moore’s Bijou by the Bay in Traverse City is among hundreds of U.S. theaters that made special arrangements to show the movie “The Interview,” which drew the ire of the North Korean government.

They gave a Christmas debut to the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy depicting the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Sony Pictures earlier cancelled the release after major theater chains dropped the movie.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle (http://bit.ly/1wKMvpC ) says “The Interview” was showing twice Thursday. Moore announced the opening Tuesday.

In a Facebook post, Moore says it’s always important to “stand against bullies and censors.”

The movie also showed at Ann Arbor’s State Theater, the Goodrich Quality 16 in nearby Scio Township and the State Wayne Theater in Wayne.
