As if the race couldn't already be big enough, a movie theater chain said it will be showing the third and final presidential debate on its big screens.

Regal Cinemas said it's showing the Las Vegas debate at its theaters in Branford, Stonington and Waterbury.

Admission is free.

"See Clinton vs. Trump 'face off' one more time," said Steve Bunnell, chief content and programming officer at Regal Entertainment Group.  "After the success of airing the last debate, including many full auditoriums, we want to continue to encourage our local communities to be engaged in public policy and provide Regal guests the unique opportunity to experience the political process on the big screen."

A full list of participating theaters can be found here.

Wednesday night's final showdown will happen at the University of Nevada.

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is expected to take on her email scandal and address allegations of striking a deal with the FBI.

Her campaign said she is prepared to answer some tough questions.

"This is her last big opportunity to be in front of a big national audience and make her case and she is very much looking forward to that," said Jen Palmieri, Clinton communications director.

Political experts said the debate will be Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump's last chance to turn around a race that appears to be slipping away, according to polls.

Trump has lost support among women voters amid multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

Tuesday, six people alone came forward to confirm claims leveled against him by a former writer for People. The writer said Trump grabbed and kissed her during an interview in 2005.

"These were made up allegations that were played up by the media," Trump said. "Very unfair."

The debate starts at 9 p.m. and can be seen on Channel 3. It should run until 10:30 p.m.
