The Sherlock Holmes Christmas special titled “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride” will screen in theatres across North America on January 5 and 6, 2016.
The Victorian-era special will receive a limited roll-out in US and UK movie theatres when it premieres in January 2016, reported Aceshowbiz.
PBS Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton said, “‘Sherlock’ fans just can’t get enough of the show in any way, shape or form. Offering the show on lots of platforms makes it more of an event; good buzz raises all boats.”
The theatrical version of the episode will include 20 minutes of exclusive content not shown on TV, including a guided set tour of 221B Baker Street with executive producer Steven Moffat and a short “making-of” with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
The special is expected to play in more than 500 theatres.
