MANCHESTER-BY-THE-SEA (CBS) — To celebrate the film “Manchester by the Sea” being released on their online platform, Amazon bought everyone in the movie’s namesake town an Amazon Prime membership–and some popcorn.

The company, which produced the movie through its Amazon Studios division, is sending gift boxes to every home in the North Shore town containing a redeemable code for one free year of the Prime service and a three-pack of popcorn.
