The historic inauguration of Barack Obama will be broadcast live to movie theatres. Tickets are going fast.

Barack Obama, Movie Star

on January 16, 2009 by BOXOFFICE Staff

When Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President next Tuesday, many political junkies across America will be munching on popcorn.

MSNBC has partnered with Screenvision to broadcast the ceremony live in movie theatres from New York to California. The public reaction has been strong so far. Tickets for the event are free and seven locations are already sold out, which means that interested Obama supporters in certain markets are now no longer able to sign up to receive a free pass.

Those sold-out locations are: Clearview Chelsea (New York), The Bridge (Los Angeles), Muvico Rosemont 18 (Chicago), The Bridge (Philadelphia), Muvico Centro Ybor 20 (Tampa), Showcase Cinemas Southington (Hartford-New Haven), Muvico Palace 20 (West Palm).

B OXOFFICE will be in attendance at Clearview Chelsea in New York and The Bridge in Los Angeles, so make sure to check back here on Tuesday for our reports. Also, we will be posting updates about which theatres are sold out between now and then.
