Sponsors of promotional movie screenings typically give away free posters, soundtrack CDs, and other items tied to the film being shown. Tonight I saw ARE WE THERE YET?, a new family comedy with Ice Cube. (There's something you wouldn't have expected circa N.W.A.'s heyday.) Anyway, they distributed the usual stuff (posters) and the promo items tailored for the film (whoopie cushions). A little bit later a local television personality leads another giveaway aimed at the kids in attendance. When he's finished he mentions that he also has posters for THE WOODSMAN for those who would like one. Yes, that's the film starring Kevin Bacon as a convicted pedophile trying to integrate into society again.
