My first thought was that nobody provides these things at movies. But thn I realized that I attended two movies that had.
I’m not talking about Pressbooks or souvenir books, like the things that get handed out at Hollywod premieres and nowhere else. Nor am I talking about gimmick items like 3D glasses, Smell-o-vision scratch and sniff cards, and the like.
I mean movies that you see in an ordinary non-major-city theater where they give you supplementary reading material on the film. I’ve attended two movies where I got stuff like this.
One was Executive Action, the 1973 Conspiracy Movie about the JFK assassination that covered the same ground Oliver Stone later would in JFK
When I walked in the door, the usher handed me what looked and felt like a newspaper. What it was was a exhaustive set of footnotes to the movie(!), printed on newsprint paper and as thick as the first section of a typical daily.
A bit over a decade late I attended a screening of David Lynch’s Dune and got a sheet of 8.5" X 11" paper printed on both sides. A light gray image completely covered both sides with the giant-moons-in-the-background logo for the film. Printed in black atop this was a glossary of terms from Herbert’s book. Apparently they felt things weren’t clear enough from just watching the film, and thought people could crib from these, maybe during the brightly-lit desert scenes.
Anybody else see any Movie Handouts like this?
