For the first time ever, WWE's SummerSlam will be broadcast live in movie theaters around the country, with six of them in Minnesota.
The WWE is collaborating with Iconic Events for the live broadcast of the pay-per-view, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Central Time on Saturday, Aug. 21.
The six Minnesota movie theaters that will be showing it live are:
- Lakes Theatre | Baxter, MN

SummerSlam is traditionally considered WWE's second biggest PPV of the year, after WrestleMania.
And this year's event is likely to be headlined by WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE legend-turned-Hollywood star John Cena, who returned to the ring after a few years this past Sunday at Money in the Bank.
