On-Screen Advertising

Advertise your business on the big screen!

Our 15 minute looped advertising reel plays 30 minutes before our regular film showings on the big screen (excluding streaming/live events, Greentech nights). We accept video ads or still slides. Slides will be projected for 10 seconds, six times before the movie. 30 second video ads will be shown twice before a movie.

Our preshow ad reel is updated weekly, with ads running at a two week minimum. Our week runs from Friday – Thursday. We must receive your ad by 5PM on the Friday before your ad runs. New ads sent after 5PM on the Friday before your ad runs may not make it into the next week’s reel. Please submit your 30 second video/slide by email or Dropbox.  Payment is due before your ad runs. The emailed invoice is payable online or in-person at our box office.
