BBC Worldwide is continuing its tradition of putting some of its television shows’ biggest episodes on one of the biggest screens – the kind you can find in the movie theater.
That continues in January when the fourth season finale of Sherlock takes to the screen in select American theaters through Fathom Events.
Sherlock: The Final Problem will debut Jan. 16, with an encore the following Wednesday, Jan. 18. Both shows will start at 7 p.m. local time.
That will line up the theater experience with the actual series, which begins its long-awaited fourth season in the United States on PBS beginning Jan. 1.
Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as both Holmes and Watson. Organizers of theater showings say audiences will “experience laughter, tears, shocks and surprises in this thrilling, not-to-miss season finale, as well as 15 minutes of exclusive extras.”
This is the second Sherlock episode to hit theaters. BBC and Fathom did the same to Sherlock‘s holiday special, The Abominable Bride last year, which was shown in theaters just a few days after its PBS airing in the United States. This time, BBC is waiting an extra week beyond that.
Tickets are available at Fathom Events or at participating box offices from the 350 theaters that will participate.
Sherlock was created by outgoing Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat along with writer and actor Mark Gatiss, who doubles as Sherlock’s brother Mycroft. It’s inspired by the literary works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The series has earned 34 Emmy nominations in its run of limited seasons, winning nine. Those awards including best actor and best supporting actor in a limited series for both Cumberbatch and Freeman, as well as outstanding writing for Moffat and outstanding television or movie for Abominable Bride.
Cumberbatch also received an acting Golden Globe nomination in 2013, which instead was won by Kevin Costner for Hatfields & McCoys.
