TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Several independently-owned movie theaters in Arizona say they will be offering showings of “The Interview” on Christmas Day.

The Loft Cinema in Tucson and the Uptown 3 Theatre in Sierra Vista have announced a limited run starting Thursday of the Sony Pictures comedy that has ignited an international incident with North Korea.

Ultrastar Havasu 10 in Lake Havasu City will also screen “The Interview” on Christmas.

Scottsdale-based theater chain Harkins Theatres announced Tuesday that it would show the movie at a Tempe location.

Sony has authorized theaters 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 came from North Korea.
