Sherlock and Watson are headed for the big screen.

The upcoming special Sherlock: The Abominable Bride is headed to theaters across North America, BBC Worldwide announced Monday.

The special will screen in theaters on Jan. 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. local time, just days after the special period entry premieres in the U.S. on Jan. 1. The special theater engagement will include 20 minutes of exclusive content not shown on TV, including a guided set tour of 221B Baker Street hosted by co-writer and executive producer Steven Moffat and a “making of” short film featuring stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

The special is expected to play in more than 500 theaters. Tickets will be available beginning Nov. 6 through FathomEvents.com.

The 90-minute one-off special installment will see Sherlock and Watson travel back in time to 1895.

This isn't the first time BBC Worldwide has teamed with Fathom Events. The Doctor Who anniversary special grossed more than $10 million at the box office globally in 2013. In the U.S. specifically, the special took in $4.7 million.

Sherlock is produced by Hartswood Films for BBC One and co-produced by Masterpiece.
