You can watch Wednesday's presidential debate for free at a Regal Cinemas.

Good news for politics junkies: You can see the debate live on the big screen at a theater near you.

Regal Cinemas locations around the country will offer viewers a free screening of the third and final presidential debate. And even better, you can get a free small drink if you purchase a popcorn at the theater.

The free showing will air at 9 p.m. and tickets are only available at Regal Cinemas box offices. The debate will play at more than 100 locations around the country, in 39 states. For a full list of cinemas offering the political showdown, see here.

The theater chain previously offered screenings of the first and second presidential debates at some locations across the country. It decided to offer a showing of the final debate after the success of the last one, with many auditoriums selling out, Regal’s chief content and programming office told Cox Media Group.

If you can’t make it to a Regal Cinema, there are plenty of ways to watch the final debate — which will take place between 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas — at home. A record-setting 84 million people tuned into the candidates’ first debate last month, with 67 million watching the second. Though historical data suggests even fewer people will watch the third, the debate is likely to touch on hot-button items, like the Supreme Court and immigration.
