An Albany movie house has signed on to show the controversial film "The Interview" - The picture stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.

The film’s original release, slated for Christmas, was delayed due to concerns of threats, allegedly from North Korea, over its content. The picture eventually was released online, earning SONY pictures 15 Million dollars within a week's time over the Christmas holiday.

The Madison Theater will be screening "The Interview" starting Friday, Jan. 9.

Screening times are 4:20 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. Friday, Tuesday, and Thursday; 2 p.m., 4:20 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; 4:20 p.m. at Wednesday.
