    Paramount Cancels 'Team America' Screenings

    At least three movie theaters that planned to show "Team America" say Paramount Pictures has canceled the 2004 comedy from public screening.

    Cleveland's Capitol Theatre, Dallas-Fort Worth's Alamo Drafthouse and Atlanta's Plaza Atlanta wrote that Paramount pulled the movie on Thursday.

    "This was a weird coincidence for us," Dave Huffman, director of Marketing at Cleveland Cinemas, which operates the Capitol Theatre, told the Huffington Post. "We had the film booked all the way back in October as part of our midnight cult series and it was scheduled to play June 20, 2015. We got an email shortly after 1 p.m saying the film was pulled from release."

    Some theaters, like the Alamo Drafthouse, had planned to show "Team America" in the wake of Sony canceling "The Interview."

    "Due to to circumstances beyond our control, the screening of 'Team America' on Dec. 27 has been cancelled as the film has been removed from release," Drafthouse wrote on its Facebook page. "We apologize to anyone who has bought advance tickets and will be providing full refunds today."

    A representative for Paramount Pictures was not immediately available to comment.
