Rogue dinosaurs, the Terminator and Ted the talking bear will have an unusual co-star of sorts on three local big screens starting today.
If you arrive early enough at the movies, chances are you will see a new video promoting a local government agency that’s trying to raise its public profile — the Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The 45-second video has none of the suspense, bells and whistles of Terminator Genisys, Jurassic World or Ted 2, but the informational clip will be shown through July 16 during the commercials that precede the coming attractions before the movie starts.
The video will be shown Muvico Parisian at CityPlace in West Palm Beach, Cobb 16 at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens and Cinemark Palace 20.
The video cost about $25,000 but it was not paid for directly by the Palm Beach MPO. It was paid for by the Florida Department of Transportation as part of a program to promote the local transportation planning process, said Malissa Booth, public information office of the Palm Beach MPO.
The Broward MPO also is releasing a video today.
