Seven Arts Pictures Announces US Release of "The Pool Boys"

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/17/11 -- Seven Arts Pictures PLC (NASDAQ: SAPX) ("Seven Arts") today announced it has finalized plans for the US release of "The Pool Boys" (the "Film"). Cinedigm Entertainment Group (NASDAQ: CIDM) ("Cinedigm") will release the Film theatrically on between 75 to 100 screens in the top fifty markets on September 30, 2011.

"The Pool Boys" is the hilarious new comedy from the makers of "American Pie."
