Snowden has been cleared to appear at a theater near you

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden will be live-streamed from his exile in Moscow in theaters nationwide following a special screening of the Oliver Stone film “Snowden” on Sept. 14. Fathom Events and Open Road films announced the Snowden Live event Friday.

Snowden will be speaking to Stone in the satellite conversation.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Snowden in the film, which looks at his life between the years of 2004 to 2013, when Snowden leaked thousands of classified security documents to the press. It also gives an intimate peek into his relationship with Lindsay Mills, portrayed in the movie by Shailene Woodley.

Tickets for Snowden Live can be purchased online beginning Friday, Aug. 5.
