Just in case you fellow Whovians had any lingering doubts that BBC was pulling out all the stops to hype the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, you can put those doubts to rest right now. On top of the special “Day of the Doctor” airing in 75 countries simultaneously, it will also be shown in movie theaters all over the country (some even in 3D).
It will be shown over the course of two days on November 23rd and 25th. On November 23rd, it appears participating theaters will all simulcast “Day of the Doctor” at the same time it’s set to air on TV. If you’re interested in viewing the special on the big screen, tickets are available at Cinemark.com. In case you decide to wait to see it November 25th instead, you can view the list of participating theaters here. You may want to act fast since many of these screenings are already selling out.
As tempting as it is to see the TARDIS on the silver screen, I think I’m going to settle for watching this momentous occasion from the comforts of home. I just can’t justify paying what will probably be at least $20 to watch something I can just as easily see on my TV for free. However, if you do decide to opt for the big screen experience that is more than understandable and more power to you.
