Pre-Show Advertising

The Catlow Theater offers advertising opportunities for local businesses or organizations during our Pre-Show Digital Video Presentation. Our pre-show presentation is designed to be a casual conversation starter for waiting moviegoers. Carefully placed in each pre-show presentation are digital slides and videos from local businesses and organizations appealing to the Barrington and neighboring areas.

The Catlow customer base stretches far across the Northwest Suburban area and also includes movie-goers from the Western Suburbs, the North Shore and even into some Chicago neighborhoods. (Based on registration information from our 5,400-plus member Catlow email list.)

 

 

Advertising in a Movie Theater Impacts Your Customers!

 

Reach an Active Attentive Audience

Why advertise before the movies? Advertising to a local attentive audience with the impact of being on a big movie screen is only possible in a local movie theater. Unlike television and radio advertising, theater pre-show advertising targets your local audience. In addition, the audience is in their seats paying attention (NOT changing channels, DVR advertising skipping, taking kitchen breaks, bathroom breaks, phone calls, ...). Your ad is seen by local potential customers, who are active and out in your local community (not couch potatoes).

 

Connect to Local Customers

The Catlow pre-show begins about 15-20 minutes before the featured movies start time, with advertising designed to hold the viewer’s attention and deliver your message.

 

A LIST OF OUR CURRENT ADVERTISERS, ALONG WITH CONTACT INFORMATION, WILL BE LISTED ON OUR WEBSITE AT LOCAL ADVERTISERS AND IN OUR CATLOW EMAIL LIST FOOTER. THERE WILL BE AN ON-SCREEN SLIDE TELLING PEOPLE WHERE TO GET THE CONTACT INFO ONLINE.
