Oncee has linked to a interesting Dave Peyton column about the bizarro way Marshall University, Warner Brothers and Huntington's theater groups are promoting the premier of We Are Marshall.
Pullman Square's Marquee Cinema location failed Public Relations 101 today, however, by refusing to set a maximum number of $25 tickets that could be purchased per person for it's version of the premier. Those tickets, which include access to a bleacher area on 4th Avenue where one can gawk at the movie's stars waltzing up the green carpet, were purchased by the dozens (and sometimes by the hundreds) by people now selling them on eBay. Most locals who stood in line for the tickets this morning were sent home empty-handed.
The current eBay price for a single ticket? $117.
UPDATE: As of this morning, the ticket I'm tracking is bidding at $177.50.
