WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Christmas is not only big for family get togethers at home, it’s also a huge day at the box office.
Many folks around Cape Fear left their homes today to go to the local theaters.
Movie after movie was sold out, and families had to choose their second or even third movie choice. This did not seem to stop the people from having a great time though.
“My wife and I usually make it a yearly tradition out of coming down here and seeing a movie,” one movie patron said.
Not on the marquees in Wilmington, though, was the controversial film “The Interview.” Sony canceled its Christmas release after threats were made about safety and security and theaters nationwide. The film is available at a few theaters across the country and through several streaming platforms online.
