Fathom Events splash screen for "Sherlock" special theater event.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2, 2016 – Oops! Did you miss the premiere, one-off airing of “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.” The special, out-of-sequence movie, which transports the BBC’s 21st century Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Dr. Watson (Martin Freeman) back to the original Sherlock’s Victorian Era, aired New Year’s Day on most PBS channels in the States.

If you forgot to catch the show—a big BBC-PBS favorite series that, alas, doesn’t make too many episodes—you still have two more chances to see it. For armchair enthusiasts, PBS will air an encore of the show on Sunday (check your local listings) as part of its “Masterpiece” series. For those willing to pony up a few dollars, Deadline informs us that you can go to the movies on either Tuesday or Wednesday:

The plan is to screen in more than 500 cinemas nationwide with cities to be confirmed closer to tickets going on sale November 6. There will be one showing on each of the days via Fathom Events, BBC Worldwide North America’s partner for the screenings. Theater audiences will see 20 minutes of exclusive additional footage, which will include a making-of short starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.


Fathom Events has posted a list of local theaters where you can find the movie house edition of “The Abominable Bride.” It will air at all theaters at 7:30 p.m. local time on both January dates. To purchase tickets, visit Fathom Events or contact one of the participating theaters.
