Assembled and hung from
the ceiling or a shelf, these can be
fun items to collect
From caps to watches, pens to telescopes, there are all sorts of things used to promote a film
Full of information regarding cast, filming
and insights into the film. These are sent
to journalists, cinemas, magazines & papers
to keep them fully informed about a new movie.
Some are full colour booklets, others a few
pages; some come with stills and other info.
Usually measuring 10" x 8", the glossy
photographic prints are used for press
promotion or cinema front of house.
They feature scenes from the movie
and sometimes behind the camera shots.
Rarely produced now for the UK & US market,
these were displayed in the cinema lobby. They featured scenes from
the film to entice the public into seeing the film
Some of the most impressive film
promotional items are standees.
The big cardboard displays you see
in the foyer of your local cinema are
hard to get hold of boxed and unused
as they tend to get damaged once
Made from the same sort of plastic used
to stick your tax disc to the windscreen
of your car, clings are great to display
on windows or other smooth, clean areas.
Stickers are, well, stickers!
