I always figured it was something the theater paid for.

That is exactly right. They have to purchase ad space in the paper.

Not to givce logic to anything the OWH does, but that is how that works.

This happens in other cities, too. It's really frustrating since I use the paper as my primary source for movie listings. It's a dumb move, marketing wise, for a theater to rely solely on it's website; that is, if you know how to access their website! If they don't advertise in the paper, I'll go to another theater.
