From at least two General Cinema trailers shown before the feature film. These shorts, made by LucasArts, encouraged patrons to buy drinks and snacks and to put their drink and snack trash in the trash can. They ran from 1992 to 2002.

In one trailer, an animated popcorn bag guy and his sexy Pepsi cup date go see The Candy Band play. This group of talented anthropomorphized snacks is a five piece combo. Lineup:

  • Generic purple box on saxophone
  • Peanut butter cup on trumpet
  • Generic yellow box with sunglasses on guitar
  • Soda cup on drum
  • Yellow popcorn bag on standup bass

In the second, the band is redesigned, but similar, with some members playing different instruments and/or are different colors:

Lineup:

  • Yellow Raisinets box with sunglasses on saxophone
  • Peanut butter cup on trumpet
  • Red Butterfingers box on guitar
  • Soda cup on drum
  • Red popcorn bag on standup bass

They play a rockin' fifties-style version of the General Cinema theme music.
