'Rent' goes (back) to the movies
Can’t get to New York for the final night of Rent on Broadway? Now you don’t have to. Sony Pictures announced today a new program called the Hot Ticket, which will screen Broadway shows, rock concerts, and sporting events in digitally-equipped movie theaters across the country (much like how some theater chains have been experimenting with special presentations for years). Up first will be Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium, which will debut in August for a limited time. Then, Rent will bow in September, featuring special closing night extras, including performances from original cast members.
