NEW YORK (AP) — If anyone is kicking themselves that they missed seeing the musical "Kinky Boots," relax — it's coming to a movie screen nearby this summer.

Fathom Events plans to show a performance from the London cast in nearly 500 movie theaters across America on June 25 and again on June 29.

The musical is about a staid British shoe factory on the brink of ruin that retrofits itself into a maker of footwear for drag queens. It has songs by Cyndi Lauper and a story by Harvey Fierstein.
