A Valley movie theater will be showing “The Interview” starting on Christmas Day.

Harkins Theaters said it will show the movie at Valley Art in Tempe. In a statement, the company said it’s hopeful to be able to show the Sony Pictures comedy at more locations. The Scottsdale-based theater chain operates 30 theaters in five states across the Southwest.

Sony has also authorized theaters in Texas and Georgia 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 on Sony came from North Korea.
