Movie theater giving away prizes ahead of 'Star Wars'

A Bronx movie theater is giving away free prizes ahead of the highly anticipated "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."



The purchase of a movie ticket at Concourse Multiplex Cinemas gives patrons a spin of a wheel to win prizes, ranging from candy to free movie tickets.



The theater's manager, Rasheda Chatman, says it is the first time the theater is holding an event like this, and is giving away more than 35 toys.



Smaller prizes include travel mugs, pencils and bags.



The giveaway ends at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.



Concourse Multiplex Cinemas will also have showings of "The Force Awakens" Thursday evening.
