DRAFTHOUSE FILMS RAISES THE STAKES WITH “CHEAP THRILLS” IN SELECT THEATERS MARCH 21

AUSTIN, TX – December 17, 2013 – Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, announces the theatrical release of the dark comic thriller Cheap Thrills in New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and additional topmarkets on Friday, March 21, 2014 with a platform release throughout Spring.

Cheap Thrills was acquired by Drafthouse Films, in partnership with Snoot Entertainment, following its world premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival where it won the “Midnighters Audience Award.”  The directorial debut from E.L. Katz, Cheap Thrills, has been hailed as “a black comic masterpiece….brilliant and furious piece of filmmaking” (Drew McWeeny, HitFix) while First Showing says Cheap Thrills is “a dynamite charge of fun.”

Cheap Thrills follows Craig (Pat Healy, Compliance), a struggling family man who loses his low-wage job and is threatened with eviction. In an effort to delay facing the music at home, he heads to a local bar and encounters an old friend (Ethan Embry, Empire Records). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner, Anchorman 2) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton, The Inkeepers). The couple engages the two friends in a series of innocent dares in exchange for money over the course of the evening, with each challenge upping the ante in both reward and boundaries. It seems like easy and much needed money, but the couple’s twisted sense of humor pushes just how far Craig and his friend are willing to go for money and cheap thrills.
