1. FEATURE SPONSORSHIP
Feature Sponsorship is reserved for up to 6 businesses at any one time, with “category exclusivity,” meaning only one realtor, one bank, one dentist, etc.
The annual investment is $3,000 or $250 per month. (Payment plans available.)
Feature Sponsors receive the following exclusive benefits:
- PROMINENT LOGO DISPLAY IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO ALL FEATURE FILMS. After the lights go down and the trailers play, one of the last thing the audience sees before our feature films will be “Images Cinema programming supported by” and your logo up on the big screen.
- 12 MONTHS OF ONSCREEN UNDERWRITING. As part of the pre-show prior to the start of each show, your slide will stay onscreen for 15 seconds. The entire show cycles through 2-4 times prior to each movie. ($1,800 value)
- BUSINESS LOGO ON OUR WEB SITE. Your logo and a link to your web site will be displayed at ImagesCinema.org.
- BUSINESS LOGO LISTING IN OUR WEEKLY CINEMAIL. Twice a week we send an email to over 2,600 subscribers. Your logo and link to your website will be included.
- A LOGO LISTING ON OUR WEEKLY FLIER, which is available at the cinema. Up to 300 copies are distributed each week.
- SOCIAL MEDIA SPOTLIGHT. Once a month we will let our Facebook and Twitter followers know that your business helps to keep our doors open and we will direct them to either your website or social media site.
