Fans wait in line Monday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the memorial service for pop star Michael Jackson will be held today.

At least three Georgia movie theaters are scheduled to show today's memorial service for Michael Jackson.


According to the Web site, Carmike cinemas in Conyers, Columbus and Savannah plan to carry the live satellite feed from Staples Center in Los Angeles beginning at 1 p.m. EDT.

The site listed no theaters in the Augusta area nor in South Carolina.

About 39 theaters across the nation planned to broadcast the service free.

Coverage will be carried by all the major TV networks, however.

More than 1.6 million people had registered online for free tickets to Jackson's Los Angeles memorial, and 8,750 people were selected to get two tickets each.
