Featured Theater Service: Showtimes and Information Pages

Below, you will find information about having your theater schedules and information provided for our readers to view. The BigScreen Cinema Guide is one of the best publications of its kind, and having your theater's information listed here is a great way to reach your customers 24 hours a day, and an opportunity to differentiate your theater from your competition!

To help you compete for the admission dollars of the movie-going public, we are able to show our readers what makes your theater special.

What Can You Do For My Theater?

Once you become a Featured Theater, we provide the following information about your theater to our readers:

General Information

  • Theater Name
  • Logo/Photo on Showtimes Page and a Photo Gallery with as many photos as you like
  • Address
  • Phone Recording Number
  • Box Office Phone Number (if you wish to provide it)
  • Unique BigScreen URL for your theater (e.g. http://www.bigscreen.com/timescinema)
  • Point a custom domain name to your listing (e.g. http://www.yourcinema.com) as a low-cost alternative to a custom web site

Showtimes

Your showtimes appear twice, once on your theater's Showtimes page, and another time on the Showtimes page for each movie. This gives you double exposure to our readers, making sure that your theater is shown when they seek out their favorite movies. Along with the showtimes for movies playing at your theater, we also provide the following details:

  • Digital Sound
  • Stadium Seating
  • THX
  • Pass List Suspended
  • Electronic Ticketing (for Participating Theaters)
  • Open Caption / DVS Presentations
  • Sneak Previews, Exclusive Engagements, and Advance Previews

Our showtime information is provided by CinemaSource, which is the nation's largest distributor of movie showtimes and related movie information. Since you provide your showtimes directly, the accuracy of the data is the best possible.

Information Page

  • Ticket Prices
  • Map of Surrounding Area
  • Directions from Major Highways & Landmarks
  • Area Dining Information
  • Special Features of Your Theater
  • Detailed Screen Information (Digital Sound, THX, Stadium Seating)
  • Additional Photos of Your Theater, Lobby, Projection Booth (anything you want to show off)

We work with you to customize your information to your needs and what you would like to display to our readers. Other so-called "portal" sites provide just movie showtime information, but we have been working with theaters since 1995 to bring the best information possible to our readers. Examples of such information is stadium seating, digital sound, pass list suspended indications, and more.

What About Electronic Ticketing?

We are able to provide electronic ticketing services for those theaters that are working with our electronic ticketing partner, MovieTickets.com. This has become a very popular feature with our readers, and we highly recommend for theaters to provide this ultimate level of service and convenience to their customers.

How Long Does It Take to Get Listed?

It usually takes a couple of days to get your information collected and online. If you contact us by Monday, we'll probably be listing your showtimes by Wednesday!

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of having your schedules and information published varies with the total number of screens that you have:

Featured Theater Service Rates

Total # of ScreensMonthly FeeSetup Fee
1-5$25$50
6-9$40$50
10-19$50$0
20-29$60$0
30-49$70$0
50+Contact Us$0

Note: if you have multiple locations, add the total number of screens for all locations and use the table above for the applicable pricing. For example, if you have 3 locations with 8 screens each, your total cost would be $60 per month.

This is most likely less per week than you pay for one day's worth of advertising in your local newspaper.

OK, I'm Convinced! What Do I Do Now?

Contact us, and we'll be happy to work with you to deliver your information to our readers -- your customers! Since we work so closely with each theater, we're sure that you'll like what we offer at a rate that provides you with the best value around!
