‘Casino’ and ‘Leo’ Going Theatrical/Digital

'Casino' and 'Leo' Going Theatrical/Digital

This week, there are more than two indie films opening in New York City theaters, but there are two indie films opening in New York that will also have a digital release courtesy of CRM. The first is American Casino, Leslie and Andrew Cockburn’s Tribeca premiere that examines the recent subprime loan meltdown. The documentary is currently on the screen in San Francisco (at the Roxie) but will come home to New York City this week at the Film Forum. Check out David Denby’s recent write-up on the film in The New Yorker. After that, there are scheduled engagements in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Denver, and more. American Casino is in the midst of an Oscar-qualifying run, and because of the ridiculous rules that entails, we are holding the digital release back for a couple of months. But, soon enough, the film will be available on VOD to audiences nationwide. Here’s the trailer:

Opening on Friday at Manhattan’s Quad Cinema is Jeremy Davidson’s drama Tickling Leo. The story of a modern Jewish family dealing with the aftermath of WWII, the film stars Eli Wallach, Lawrence Pressman, Daniel Sauli, Annie Parisse, Ronald Guttman, and Victoria Clark. It also won the Jury Award for Best Feature at the recent Stony Brook Film Festival. Tickling Leo will open in New York City on Friday, plus open at the Malverne Cinema on Long Island the same day. Following that, the film will expand to more cities in New York state as well as in Florida. Even if you don’t live in New York, you’ll get a chance to see the film starting this weekend. We’re releasing it simultaneously on Amazon VOD, and will start rolling it out to other digital outlets (iTunes, Cable VOD, etc.) soon after. Here’s the trailer:
