We already knew that El Camino, the first-ever Breaking Bad movie, would premiere on Netflix on October 11. Now (via THR) there are new details on the film’s release — including the fact that El Camino’s Netflix premiere will coincidence with a brief theatrical run that same weekend.

Series creator Vince Gilligan told THR that the theatrical release came out of the old show’s premieres:

We would watch this quote-unquote television show. I mean, I guess quotations aren't needed. It is absolutely a television show. But we would have this wonderful, very limited, one-time opportunity to watch our television show on a big screen with giant stereo speakers thumping, the image filling 40 feet across. I always thought, 'This thing, it looks like a movie. It doesn't look like a show.' I really want to be able to share that with fans.
