Although the flurry of media attention it received didn't exactly end up translating to stellar ratings, the Syfy original movie "Sharknado" has managed to garner an impressive amount of success since premiering on the network on July 11, with a sequel quickly being greenlit. Another interesting development in the "Sharknado" saga has just emerged, with it being announced that Regal Cinemas will screen the film in select U.S. theaters on August 2, giving audiences the chance to see the film in all of its parodic and over-the-top glory.
“’Sharknado’ was an instant hit with fans – and celebrities – from the moment they first saw it, creating a social media phenomenon on July 11 with nearly 400,000 social mentions,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president for NCM Fathom Events. “Imagine sharks invading from the skies on 40-foot screens in movie theaters nationwide. Next week’s special midnightshowing is a first for Fathom and will answer the age-old question: Who knew sharks could fly?”
