As you may know, The BigScreen Cinema Guide is an independent publication. We're not run by some mega-corporation and we aren't run by any individual movie theater chain. This is a website for movie enthusiasts, run by movie enthusiasts!

We publish more movie information and showtimes and information for more movie theaters in the United States than any of the other movie websites. We work every day to bring our readers the best movie and theater information, and we appreciate that you visit our site!

Making this site possible takes a lot of effort, and there are bills to pay. The advertising you see on this site is a necessary element to make the magic happen, but there is an alternative that makes a big improvement to your experience here.

Supercharge Your Experience with a VIP Membership

For many years, we have offered VIP memberships to our readers as a way to thank them for directly supporting this website and our efforts here and in exchange, we remove all the advertising and provide additional exclusive features.

For just $9.95 per year, you can become a VIP with all the benefits that our VIPs enjoy! That's just 83 cents per month.
