Alfonso Cuarón's Roma, Netflix's big Oscar hopeful, is getting the company's biggest theatrical release to date. While some of its other acclaimed titles – including The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Private Life – received extremely limited runs in theaters, Roma, with its stunning cinematography and immersive sound design, will have a massive lead-up to its release on the streaming service.
The film has been enormous in Mexico City, where the film is set, with demand so high that multiple theaters had to be added. It's also had sell-out crowds across North America. Roma opened in the U.S. on November 21, and will have its widest release beginning December 7. Many countries across the globe will also be able to see it on the big screen, as the Oscar-winning director intended. To see a list of participating theaters, follow this link.
And if you can't make it out to a theater, Roma will hit Netflix on Friday, December 14. Either way, make sure you see it. It's one of the best films of the year.
