North Texans who want to watch the second presidential debate Sunday won’t be confined to their couches to take in the action.
Locations in Dallas and Fort Worth will be among a crop of 206 theaters airing the second Clinton vs. Trump showdown live, for free, on the big screen.
Regal Entertainment Group, which lays claim to 564 theaters nationwide, is behind the promotion.
“As we continue to look at ways to bring alternative content to our screens, we invite you to come cheer and jeer the candidates at Regal this Sunday,” said the company’s chief content and programming officer, Steve Bunnell.
Debate viewers who want the theater experience can go to the United Artists Galaxy Theatre Stadium 10 on McCree Road in northeast Dallas, or Regal Fossil Creek Stadium 11 on the 35W service road in North Fort Worth.
Nine other Texas locations are participating. A full list of theaters showing the debate can be found here.
If the big screen experience isn't enough, Regal Entertainment Group decided to sweeten the pot. Theatergoers attending the debate will get a free small soda with any popcorn purchase.
The second presidential debate is scheduled for 8 p.m. Central Time Sunday at Washington University in St. Louis. For those staying at home, the debate will air live on WFAA and stream live on WFAA.com.
