While Elvis is now available to stream or watch on DVD/Blu-ray, you’ll soon be able to see it in theaters again, and for FREE! But there is a catch…it will only be available to watch in a few locations.

In celebration of Presley’s birthday on January 8, select theaters will screen the Elvis movie for free that day. Deadline published a list of locations participating in the free screening. They are:

Atlanta (AMC Phipps Plaza)

Chicago (AMC River East)

Dallas (AMC NorthPark)

Kansas City, KS (AMC Town Center)

Los Angeles (AMC Burbank)

NYC (Loews 34th Street)

San Francisco (AMC Metreon)

Toronto (Cineplex Scotiabank)

Vancouver (Cineplex Odeon International Village).

Deadline reports all of the screenings will take place at 5 PM, with the exception of the screening in Los Angeles. That screening will start at 4 PM. There will also be a screening at Presley’s Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee at 2 PM.

Those who attend the screenings will see a special introduction from Luhrmann and Butler.

If you weren’t able to see Elvis in theaters before, now is the time to catch it if you live in or near one of the cities mentioned above. Then you can see what all of the hype is about!
