If an election year was ever meant for the big screen, it's this one. And this Sunday, the 2nd presidential debate will head to Regal Cinemas nationwide, where you can sit back with some popcorn and watch a supersized Donald Trump interrupt Hillary Clinton. Theaters always have been the best place to laugh, cry, and witness our dystopian future unfold.

Regal's programming officer, Steve Bunnel, released a statement regarding the decision to bring the big event to theaters: “While our auditoriums feature the likes of Batman V. Superman or Alien vs. Predator, we are excited to offer voters a chance to watch Clinton vs. Trump as they go head to head on the big screen. As we continue to look at ways to bring alternative content to our screens, we invite you to come cheer and jeer the candidates at Regal this Sunday.” Bring tissues if you're more of a silent weeper.

This weekend's debate will be a town hall format, coming at you live from St. Louis at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. It will be moderated by ABC's Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper.
