Paramount Pictures has reportedly banned movie theaters from showing of 2004’s “Team America: World Police” as a replacement for Sony Entertainment’s “The Interview.”

Cleveland’s Capitol Theatre, Dallas/Fort Worth’s Alamo Drafthouse and Atlanta’s Plaza Atlanta both tweeted that the would no longer be able to show the films, The Huffington Post reported Thursday.

“We had the film booked all the way back in October as part of our midnight cult series and it was scheduled to play June 20, 2015. We got an email shortly after 1 p.m saying the film was pulled from release,” Dave Huffman, director of Marketing at Cleveland Cinemas, told the Huffington Post.

Paramount Pictures did not return the Huffington Post’s request for comment, the website reported.

On Thursday, Sony Entertainment ended the Dec. 25 release of “The Interview” in response to threats made by the hacking group “Guardians for Peace,” which U.S. officials believe is linked to North Korea.
