‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special to Get Theater Screening This Holiday Season

Apparently watching British television at your local multiplex is a super trendy activity now?

Following on the heels of the announcement that the upcoming Sherlock Victorian-themed one-off episode would screen in cinemas around the US, we can also start planning to see this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special on the big screen too. Yes, BBC Worldwide and Fathom Events have announced that this year’s holiday installment of the iconic sci-fi series will run for a special two-night event in US theaters December 28 and 29 at 7:30pm (local time) in nearly 300 theaters across the U.S.

Good news: We know the title of the upcoming Sherlock special, and we know it’s airing in America on January 1 at 9pm, thanks to Masterpiece and your local PBS station. Additionally, we also know we’ll be seeing new Sherlock on the same day as our friends in the UK, for the first time ever.

The cherry on top of this sundae of awesome is that after you get your feelings about The Abominable Bride under control following its television premiere, you can go see it again in a movie theater with fellow Sherlock fans!

Yes, Sherlock is getting its first big-screen theatrical release, and is expected to screen in over 500 theaters across the United States.
