BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - At least one Alabama theater plans to show the new comedy at the center of the Sony hacking case.

Edge Theaters tweeted Tuesday that it will show "The Interview" at its Birmingham theater on Christmas Day. The Edge 12 lists a total of eight screenings of the movie on Thursday.

Sony Pictures Entertainment is releasing the movie on a limited basis after initially saying it wouldn't be shown.

Sony announced last week it had called off the scheduled Christmas release of the North Korea satire following hacker threats of violence against theaters.

Edge Theaters is based in Birmingham.
