In case you haven't heard,


starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, a comedy that centers on a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was responsible for Sony Pictures' emails being hacked just before the movie's planned Christmas Day release. The group that claimed responsibility for the hack, the Guardians of Peace, also threatened violence against moviegoers if the film made it to theaters. That prompted the nation's largest theater chains to say they wouldn't screen THE INTERVIEW. Sony, too, said it wouldn't release the movie. Then, in an abrupt turnaround, it was announced that it would be released to independent movie theaters and available to rent online. Although THE INTERVIEW is not a typical Lincoln film (in fact we would not have been able to book it if it had gone to the cineplex), the public has spoken, and THE INTERVIEW is coming to the Lincoln. G. Allen Johnson of the San Francisco Chronicle puts it best: "No matter what you think of dumb comedies, THE INTERVIEW, thanks allegedly to Kim, has gone from disposable to indispensible cinema. It's a must-see movie in the context of what has happened, and will spark a discussion of, in comedy, how far is too far?"

Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show Skylark Tonight. When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
