Love It! Texas Theater Refuses To Let North Korea Win, Plans To Screen “Team America” And Give Out Free Toy Guns…
Team America scene mocking Kim Jong Il (note the threat by the U.N. to send him a sternly worded letter):
When hackers give you lemons, you’ve got to make lemonade.
One Dallas-area movie theater refuses to take the fallout from Sony’s epic data breach sitting down. In true Texas form, it’s dialed up the patriotism to 15 and announced plans to host a screening of “Team America: World Police” instead of the embattled assassination comedy “The Interview” next week.
“With cap guns for everyone … for free,” said James Wallace, who programs the Dallas/Ft. Worth Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, according to the Dallas Morning News. “Because you can’t spell freedom without free.”
Or, isn’t it “Freedom isn’t free?” Either way, free is almost always a good thing.
Wallace and his theater plan to make the Dec. 27 screening a celebration of America and its greatness — complete with guns, American flags, red white and blue streamers, balloons, and outbursts of “America! F*** yeah!”
Sony cancelled the premier of the Seth Rogen and James Franco flick after hackers stole terabytes of data from the company’s servers and threatened attacks on theaters that screen the movie. With the new threat, some of the biggest theater chains pulled out.
