Shout! Factory celebrates Pride Month and special packaging of THE BABADOOK
Shout! Factory rings in Pride Month by offering a “Shout Proud” Sale—a two-week offering of over 80 personally curated home entertainment movies and series that have resonated with many individuals in the LGBTQ community and their allies. There’s something for everyone in the mix: Drama, outrageous camp, musicals, film and tv classics, and even horror! The promotion starts today through June 20th, 2019. Visit ShoutFactory.com for in-depth details.
The event also includes recently announced new-to-Blu-ray™ films To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar, BOOM!, JEFFREY, and CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC plus a special packaging offer for THE BABADOOK. Due to the unpredictable world of social media and passionate fans, the hit thriller became an unexpected and embraced LGBTQ mascot in 2017 and continued into 2018. To further celebrate the status, Shout Factory (in participation with their partners at IFC Midnight) have created an official limited edition and numbered Pride-themed slipcover packaging that will be shrink-wrapped over their existing Blu-ray release. The slipcover has a gloss finish with embossed highlights. Only 2,500 of this variant are being made and will be sold exclusively on Shoutfactory.com.
The best part is that purchases are going to a good cause. Shout! Factory will donate a percentage of all Blu-ray™/DVD sales during the month of June to the Los Angeles LGBT Center®, a long-standing non-profit organization that provides valuable and much-needed services locally and across the country.
