Does anybody know ways to order free promotional materials other than through Fox Exhibitor and Sony Pictures Releasing?

A discussion regarding ad materias can be found here:

Basically you just need to get ahold of technicolor, consolidated, TDS, Deluxe, Archway, etc. for 1 sheets. Standees and baanners have to come from the studio rep that services your territory.

The situation on trailers is getting worse and worse. Thankfully there are people right here on FT who will send you the trailers you need if you just ask. But the studios are dumb for not making some extra trailers to be shipped out on request.

Something I failed to mention is that you should never use the websites exclusively.
Sony is pretty good about updates but a lot of the other studios update their sites so infrequently it's not really worth while to order from them.

The studios seem to be getting really tight on some of this stuff. I rarely have paramount trailers, unless they were enclosed witht a film, and haven't gotten a BV standee in 11 months.

Jim, seems to be a timing thing, BV's been pretty good to us but we're on them at least once every other week.
Haven't ordered any Paramount trialers in a while though.

For us, BV just flat out won't send them even if they have them.. They typically will send us banners instead. Its odd.. Sometimes I will have more banners than I can hang - but no standees.. Or, sometimes, like now, I have more standees than I can put up, but banners are in short supply..

I hear ya on the BV standees. Being a drive-in, we usually opt for the banners anyway because of the cramped size of our lobby.

Speaking of banners, standees, etc..... Does anybody know what a "BUS SHELTER" is? I've seen several promotional things from both BV and Fox, that list a bus shelter is available for promo materials.

A "30 SHEET" is a 36 foot x 14 foot vinyl banner, but I don't have a clue to the bus shelter dimensions.

I'm sure someone will chime in with the exact dimensions, but think of a bus shelter as inbetween a one-sheet & a regular banner.

We are lucky to get posters at my theatre. From what I've heard, it's been over a year since we received a standee, and the newest banners I've seen in our basement are from Troy.

I'm not sure of the exact dimensions but a bus shelter is basically a big version of the poster. It is designed to go in those poster cases you'd see at the mall or what have you, or, you guessed it, on the back of a bush shelter.

MovieGoods.com lists bus shelter size as 48" x 72", but that's in France. Sounds about right, though. Maybe the 46" x 64" 'Subway' they list is more accurate.

A bus stop shelter poster is just alittle larger than the old National Screen Service 40"x60" style posters. Subway style is like around 30"x40", but sideways style.

No kidding. I can't tell you how many times in the past six months, when asking for trailers on our smaller independent features, I end up getting 2 flat when I'm asking for 4 flat 2 scope. There's also a fair amount of films, maybe 1 in 10 or 20, that we just can't get a 1 sheet for. It's irritating.

That being said, Fox sends us trailers, 1 sheets, and bus shelters for hundreds of movies we'll never even play. I'm building a fort out of the boxes!

This was driving me crazy, so I measured the two bus shelters we have up right now, and they are both 48" wide and 70" tall.

Are the "Bus Shelters" paper or vinyl? I've never seen one to know.
