PPR and limits on promotion/publicity

This has come up before, but I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who
publicly shows films/videos in a library (not a classroom setting) and who
has dealt with either Motion Picture Licensing Corp. or Modern Sound
Pictures Inc. Both of them state that public advertisting of licensed
films/videos is prohibited. So how is one supposed to promote the
screenings? Is in-house publicity allowed? It seems like a ridiculous
limitation, esp. considering the high licensing fees involved.
