Going forward, Drafthouse plans to release 10-12 films in theaters in 2014.
The partnership between Cinedigm and Drafthouse will begin in January 2014 with the pre-theatrical VOD release of E.L. Katz’s SXSW award-winner Cheap Thrills, starring Ethan Embry, Pat Healy, and Sara Paxton, followed by a theatrical release in February.
