‘Doctor Who’ 50th Anniversary Special ‘Day Of The Doctor’ Coming To U.S. Theaters
The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special “Day of the Doctor” is making its way into movie theaters throughout the United States.
The special will debut on November 23 and will also be shown in 3D on movie screens in eight countries.
Since the movie will only be showcased on a small number of screens, the show’s producers have released a theater locator to find one near you.
At this time, the locator isn’t bringing up U.S. theaters, although we imagine quite a few theater owners, especially in metropolitan areas, will be leaping at the chance to showcase such a special episode of the beloved series.
The film’s producers have promised to add more theater locations in the weeks ahead, surely making the website one of the most compulsively visited geek location in North America.
With both David Tennant and Matt Smith appearing in the special, and with a limited release on the horizon, we have a feeling the movie could make its rounds at different times based on location.
Doctor Who is constantly shown on BBC America and it is arguably the most popular British series to air in the United States. Doctor Who merchandise is everywhere and it’s one of the few international shows outside of Downton Abbey that actually gets discussed and watched by a large demographic of American viewers.
At this time, we don’t know how long the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will stick around, but here’s to hoping that it reaches enough big cities for many Doctor Who fans to enjoy.
If you can’t catch “Day of the Doctor” in theaters, you can always wait and don a pair of 3D glasses for a special private viewing at a later time.
How far are you willing to travel from your home for a chance to see Doctor Who in 3D and on the big screen?
