'Magic Trip,'
the new documentary about Ken Kesey and his psychedelic impact on the 1960s, hits theaters today in New York City, Berkeley and San Fransisco (before rolling out to more theaters across the country over the next three months). However, the theatrical release is not the first time the movie is being shown. 'Magic Trip' has been available at the fingertips of viewers since its On Demand release on July 1st. It represents a growing trend of movies being released On Demand prior to their theatrical releases.

Now you don't have to live in Los Angeles or New York to see smaller, limited release films. There's a bevvy of off-beat indie selections that you can currently watch from the comfort of your home or enjoy on the big screen. But which ones are better suited for your couch, and which ones need a night out at theater? Moviefone breaks down all the summer movies available on On Demand.
