Be Assimilated For Awesome Two-Night Doctor Who Event

The term "select theaters" usually mandates a road trip for some of us. In the case of the “Doctor Who” event coming to theaters in September, the mileage is well worth it.

Fathom Events, (h/t CinemaBlend) the same organization that helped throw a “Breakfast Club” screening at SXSW and a “Jaws” celebration this summer, is once again putting pop culture on a big-screen platter.

Fellow Whovians will want to clear the calendar on Sept. 15 and 16 for a Doctor Who screening that will feature the conclusion to Series 8 as well as a preview of what is to come with Series 9.

This means getting a sneak peak at offerings with a presentation by The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), companion (Jenna Coleman) and nerd enthusiast (Wil Wheaton).

The website, where you can procure tickets, explains: “In anticipation (of) the upcoming ninth season of Doctor Who, we invite you to relive the spectacular two-part season eight finale, "Dark Water/Death in Heaven," in breath-taking RealD 3D, when it comes to cinemas nationwide for only two nights”

Fathom Events offers the following teaser to rile the sonic-screwdriver toting masses:

As stated above, the event will feature “a never-before-seen prequel to season nine and Wil Wheaton hosts an interview with stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.”

We presume this will come in video form, because while the Doctor can travel through time and space he is hardly ubiquitous—Clara Oswald splitting to save all iterations of The Doctor withstanding.

Now the bad news is you will have to wait until July 31 to secure your ticket for the screening.

It’s at that time that we will finally discover the exact locations, among the 700, that will be showing the thrilling Season 8 conclusion. 

Bring tissues, because the finale gets rather emotional.
