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.

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.

Ten Movies in 2015 That We Are Stoked For

The 2015 movie lineup at the box office is looking very promising. 2014 didn’t seem to have the originality or quality content to drive big ticket sales. Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1 was the highest grossing film domestically selling $334.3 million in tickets, the lowest total ticket sales for the highest grossing film since 2001. Hopefully this year will pick up the pace and produce some positive results at the box office. Here is a list of a few movies coming out this year that could make an impact and make 2015 a huge success. Movies are not listed in any particular order.

1. Star Wars – December 18

“A continuation of the saga created by George Lucas set thirty years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983).”
I don’t think I need to say much more. This movie has everything needed to knock it out of the park.

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron – May 1

“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.”
Marvel = Fun.

3. Jurassic World – June 12

“Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.”
The first time I heard they would be adding to the Jurassic series, I may have rolled my eyes. I don’t think the plot will be any different but the visuals and intensity will make an impact.

4. Furious 7 – April 3

“Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for the death of his brother.”
Yes, the 7th installment, but with the tragic death of Paul Walker, a lot of people want to see how they completed the movie without him.

5. Insurgent – March 20

“Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side.”
A continuation from Divergent. Expect the second installment to outperform the first.

6. Minions – July 10

“Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.”
Similar to Penguins of Madagascar released in 2014, Minions will be a huge success. Leave Despicable Me DVD’s on the start menu and you’ll see why. If you have kids, you know what I’m talking about.

7. Cinderella – March 13

“A live-action retelling of the classic fairy tale about a servant step-daughter who wins the heart of a prince.”
Following Maleficent (2014), Disney is creating a live-action version of this widely known fairytale. It looks extremely well done and magical. It will be interesting to see what twist they put on it. This just might have the power to relieve us all from the Frozen effect. Let us hope!

8. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

“The Gladers have escaped the Maze, but now they face a new set of challenges on the open roads of a world ravaged by solar flares and disease.”
The first movie was much better than anticipated. Look for this movie to at least match its success.

Trailer not available.

9. The Fantastic Four – August 7

“Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.”
At least it’s not another Transformers…

10. Mission Impossible 5 – December 25

The plot is unknown, but if it follows suit, it will still provide enough punch to drive people to the theaters.

Trailer not available.

Overall 2015 looks very promising. Theater advertisers will benefit from the higher ticket sales and more blockbuster movies. If you’ve ever thought about advertising at the movies, this year’s the year. Movie studios are getting better at scheduling major release all throughout the year and not just one particular season.
