MORNING IN THE OFFICE, YOU BETTER CATCH UP ON THE HIT H-B-O SHOW, "GAME OF THRONES." NOW YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO WATCH IT FOR FREE ON THE BIG SCREEN, AND WITH THE MAN WHO CREATED THE STORY. KOAT ACTION 7 NEWS REPORTER ALANA GRIMSTAD EXPLAINS. IF YOU SAY "GAME OF THRONES" HAS A CULT-LIKE FOLLOWING... THIS WOULD BE THE LEADER. And here we are! GEORGE R.R. MARTIN WROTE THE BOOKS THAT LED TO HBO'S SENSATIONAL SERIES. MARTIN RECENTLY BOUGHT AND RESTORED AN OLD INDEPENDENT MOVIE THEATER IN SANTA FE, JEAN COCTEAU CINEMA... AND NOW HIS WORLDS ARE COLLIDING. I've always wanted to air "Game of Thrones" here. AND SO HE WILL--ON THE BIG SCREEN--FOR FREE. The cinematography and the direction are gorgeous. You lose a lot of that on a television screen. AT THE FIRST SCREENING, PEOPLE SAT IN LINE FOR HOURS TO MAKE SURE THEY GOT ONE OF ONLY 125 COVETED SEATS. I love seeing lines in the street. AND IN COMING WEEKS, ACTORS FROM THE SHOW WILL BE SKYPING WITH THE AUDIENCE, AND IN A FEW CASES, THEY'LL ACTUALLY MAKE THE TRIP TO THE CITY DIFFERENT. We have the best cast in television. IN A COUPLE WEEKS MAISIE WILLIAMS--WHO PLAYS ARYA STARK--WILL MAKE A SPECIAL APPEARANCE. I do pinch myself from time to time because it's been a wild ride. It's been more than I could have ever expected. And it's not over yet. So whether you're already a huge fan or you want to join the "Game of Thrones" craze, you can watch the entire first three seasons here at the Jean Cocteau Theater now through March. We've got all the information you need on our website, koat.com. Reporting in SF, AG KA7N. MARTIN SAYS SEASON FOUR OF GAME OF THRONES WILL PREMIERE IN APRIL. HE SAYS HE STILL HAS TWO MORE BOOKS TO WRITE, AND WHILE HE KNOWS HOW THEY END, HE HAS TO WORK OUT ALL THE DETAILS.
