'Sharknado 2' heading to theaters for one night only

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Sharknado 2: The Second One" will be the second one to hit theaters after a stunning TV debut.

The SyFy original movie will be presented by Fathom Events for one night only on Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. local time across the country.

In addition to watching Tara Reid and Ian Ziering battle another herd of swirling sharks - this time ripping through New York City - audiences will be treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the sequel to 2013 hit "Sharknado."

The limited theatrical release for "Sharknado" was a success a year ago. Theaters not only quickly sold out of tickets, but added more screenings to meet the demand for the made-for-TV movie that premiered to nearly 1.4 million total viewers.

"Sharknado 2" pulled in 3.9 million total viewers when it premiered last week. A third installment has already been greenlit.

[Editor's note: "Sharknado 2" will screen at United Artists Snowden Square in Columbia, Regal Bel Air Cinema Stadium 14 in Abingdon and more Maryland theaters. See fathomevents.com/event/the-second-one for the full list of participating theaters.]
