Lionsgate giving 'Nurse 3D' a day-and-date release

Lionsgate is quietly releasing the horror film "Nurse 3D" in theaters and on video-on-demand platforms Friday, marking the latest effort by studios to gain an audience in the home as well as the multiplex. Industry executives said the move represents the first time a movie produced by a major studio has been premiered "day-and-date" -- a term for a release strategy in which the film opens in theaters and in the home on the same day. Lionsgate has given day-and-date releases to several films it and partners have acquired at movie festivals. Among those have been Sundance Film Festival titles "Margin Call" and "Arbitrage."
