Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Reitman and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’ famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.
There have been pop-up screenings in Toronto, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Austin, each with an accompanying poster. (The Austin show featured a Q&A moderated by Patton Oswalt, who led the audience in a ‘no talking’ PSA shoot. That would have been fun.) Tonight’s screening is in San Francisco, and once again attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the San Francisco show, Furturtle (aka artist Travis Bone) designed the poster. Check it out in full after the break.
Furturtle is Travis Bone, a Utah native who is staple amongst the gig poster illustration scene, creating images for bands such a Minus The Bear, Bright Eyes and Dave Matthews Band.

Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson).
