Netflix’s “Marriage Story” is getting a theatrical run. The movie released in theaters Wednesday, Nov. 6, and fans will have to wait a month if they want to stream it from the comfort of their own home.

“Marriage Story” will release on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 6. New titles typically release at 3 a.m. EDT on release day, so die-hard Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson fans will want to caffeine up that night.

The movie is getting a limited theatrical release because Netflix wants it to be an awards season contender. It did the same last year for “Roma,” which went on to best director and best cinematography at the Oscars.

With 97% on Rotten Tomatoes and 94% on Metacritic at press time, it’s clear that the critics love “Marriage Story.” It follows the story of theater director Charlie (Driver) and actress Nicole (Johansson) as they navigate a painful divorce but try to remain a family for their son.

“Marriage Story,” of course, isn’t Netflix’s only movie in theaters this fall. In fact, the streaming giant has 10 movies on or heading to the big screen this season

“The Laundromat​” hit theaters in September before starting to stream in October. “Dolemite Is My Name” hit theaters Oct. 4 before streaming on Oct. 25. “The King” was released in theaters on Oct. 11 while it started streaming last week. “The Irishman” and “Earthquake Bird” both hit theaters on Nov. 1. They’ll start streaming later this month.

With the addition of “Marriage Story,” Netflix has three movies in theaters at once. A typical studio would space them out to maximize box office revenue, but Netflix probably doesn’t care too much about the numbers. They’re trying to meet awards season requirements. A film must be in theaters for 7 days in a Los Angeles County theater in order to be an Oscar contender.

All of Netflix’s theatrical releases thus far have been limited, meaning they play in select cities around the country. The streamer has yet to announce a wide release.
