After a successful first weekend, Cheap Thrills will open in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, and Tempe, AZ, this weekend before expanding to more cities on April 4. Cheap Thrills will also play at The Crest in LA this weekend.
In New York at Cinema Village, actor Michael Shannon will moderate a Q&A with Cheap Thrills star Pat Healy at the 9:15pm showtimes on Friday and Saturday.
And in case you haven’t seen his offer on Twitter, Drafthouse Films CEO Tim League will let you slap him in the face if you don’t like Cheap Thrills. Here’s your video guarantee…
Cheap Thrills is also now available on all VOD platforms.
The directorial debut from E.L. Katz, 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.”
Cheap Thrills follows Craig (Pat Healy), 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). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton). 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.
