The Interview indeed opened on Christmas day, albeit not in mainstream theaters who were still scared. But plenty of brave independent theaters throughout the country agreed to show the film.
There are also digital venues where you can see the movie right now. YouTube, Google Play, X Box Video, and the official The Interview website are all ready for your viewing.
So, freedom of expression, though damaged, has prevailed. The mainstream venues cowered. And it will be their loss. Independent theaters took in $1 million dollars off the movie on Christmas Day.
For The Interview, freedom of expression prevails through alternative venues.
