Sharknado created a Twitter frenzy when it first aired on Syfy two weeks ago. A follow-up film, in which the Sharknado invades New York City, was recently announced and is set to air on Syfy in 2014.

Regal is hoping to create an experience similar to theatrical showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show by featuring Sharknado on the big screen.
