KFC family pack (9.99 plus sales tax), and "The Aviator" and "Spanglish". 
(Admissions for first run movies hereabouts are at least $9.50 before
sales tax.)

I'd say the average price for items advertised was at least $15,000.  Only
one government-agency "First Five California" run by Rob Reiner was seen.
