  When The Madison Theater in Albany, NY opened its doors in November of 1929 it was owned by Warner Bros. and served as a single-screen neighborhood theater. In 1994, the theater was acquired, redesigned, and turned into a multiplex of five screens, with two more added in 1998.

In 2013, Tierra Farm purchased the Madison Theater from Riverfront Cinemas of Albany, and renovated and re-imagined the theater – it now features three movie theaters, and a live performance venue.

James Manning has recently taken on the mantle of Director at The Madison Theater and he joins us to tell us what they’ve been up to and what they have coming up.

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.
