Advertising Opportunity

Theater advertising is quickly growing across the United States. With the development of technology advertisers are in need of a medium that can’t be skipped or ignored. Brands need to be seen and Pre-show advertising accomplishes it. The average moviegoer is in their seat 15 minutes before the movie begins. This is prime time for local advertisers to deliver their messages to a captive audience. In fact, Pre-show advertising is recalled by moviegoers up to 4x more when compared to Television.
Pre-show advertising is effective, accepted and most of all affordable. Contact us today to see how we can solve your business needs.


Theater Owners

My Movie Ads uses a unique and fully automated display system that is managed both on and off site. My Movie Ads can increase your revenues by providing a service for local businesses, giving them the ability to advertise on your screens at an affordable rate. You can maintain your nationally syndicated provider for optimal returns. Our focus is on small to medium sized businesses who want to advertise on your screens but can’t afford the high costs required by some other providers. We take care of sales, billings and managing the advertising and send you a check. Contact us for a free consultation.


The Opportunity

Going to the movies is the #1 leisure activity in America:
People love the experience of going to the movies. Ticket sales have remained steady even during times of economic crisis. The average person goes to the movie theaters 1-2 times a month, and if you ask a teenager when the last time they went to the movies was, chances are 8 out of 10 will say within the last month.

Captive Audience: Moviegoers are in their seats 15 min. before the scheduled movie time. This is prime opportunity as the entire audience is engaged in quiet conversation and focused on the content being played on the screens.

Full Video HD: All our locations are set up with HD display systems and tied into the audio system.

Affordable: Advertising at the theaters has never been more affordable. You can choose from a :10 still, :15 video or :30 video advertisement, making this opportunity available for businesses of all sizes.

Maximum Impressions: We guarantee that every ad will play at least 2x before EVERY movie plays on EVERY screen. There is 20-25 min. of available airtime between movies and we don’t sign on more than 10 min. of advertisements giving you at least 2 spots before each movie. Actual impressions will vary based on theater location and attendance.

If you are looking for a fast, effective and local way to boost your brand awareness, look no further! Direct mailers get thrown away, commercials are skipped, ads are ignored. Remotes don’t exist at the movies.
