UPDATE: The Alamo Drafthouse has cancelled its planned screening of "Team America."

The Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas, Texas, was determined to screen “The Interview” despite terror threats made against theaters who decided to show the controversial Kim Jong-un assassination comedy.

Even when Sony Pictures announced on Wednesday it was canceling the movie’s Dec. 25 theatrical release, the Texas theater dug in its heels.

Instead of “The Interview,” the Alamo Drafthouse will now screen “Team America,” another edgy comedy that mercilessly mocks North Korea’s former dictator, Kim Jong-il. Better yet, the theater plans to show the movie for “FREE(DOM).”

James Wallace, the creative manager and programmer at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Dallas location, told the Hollywood Reporter that they are “just trying to make the best of an unfortunate situation.”

Predictably, Americans everywhere were thrilled about the idea.
