From a press release:

BBC Worldwide North America and Fathom Events have announced the return of the longest-running sci-fi television series, “Doctor Who,” to the big screen for a two-night special theatrical event, “Doctor Who: Dark Water/Death in Heaven,” in spectacular 3D, starring Peter Capaldi.

“Doctor Who: Dark Water/Death in Heaven,” the show’s two-part eighth season finale, will be presented in RealD 3D and Dolby Atmos sound (where available) on Sept. 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. in approximately 700 movie theaters across Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network, including Regal Dickson City Stadium 14 & IMAX (3909 Commerce Blvd. Dickson City), Cinemark 20 (40 Glenmaura National Blvd., Moosic), R/C Movies 14 (24 E. Northampton St., Wilkes-Barre), and Cinemark Stroud Mall (160 Stroud Mall, Stroudsburg).

The event will feature “The Doctor’s Meditation,” a special prequel scene to the first episode of Season 9, and an exclusive interview with “Doctor Who” stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, hosted by Wil Wheaton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Big Bang Theory”), in addition to the two-part Season 8 finale.

Tickets for “Doctor Who: Dark Water/Death in Heaven” in 3D can be purchased now at or participating theater box offices.

“We love bringing Doctor Who events to theaters and seeing the fans come out in full force,” said Fathom Events VP of Programming Kymberli Frueh.

“This time, fans get the added excitement of seeing all the action in 3D with exclusive bonus content not available anywhere else.”

“After the enormous success of the 50th anniversary and Season 8 premiere – both No. 1 alternative one-night cinema events two years in a row – we decided to bring the Doctor back to the big screen in 3D so Whovians across the country can have a full immersive experience of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. The Season 8 finale, along with an exclusive interview with Peter and Jenna, is the perfect way to get fans ready for the upcoming premiere of new season on BBC AMERICA,” said Soumya Sriraman, EVP Film, Home Entertainment, and Licensing for BBC Worldwide North America.

In this epic two-part finale, the Doctor comes face-to-face with the mysterious Missy, and an impossible choice looms. With Cybermen on the streets of London, old friends unite against old enemies, and the Doctor takes to the air in a startling new role.

The new season of “Doctor Who” premieres Saturday, Sept. 19 on BBC America.
