What Services Do You Provide to Movie Theaters?

We provide an array of services to movie theaters, ranging from enhanced listings here on The BigScreen Cinema Guide (Featured Theater Service) to custom web site design that creates a fully customized experience for your customers while automating the updates of movie showtimes, information, ticket pricing, and announcements.

Our services build on each other, so you can decide to start small and add on as you wish.

Your Own Domain at No Extra Charge!

Point your domain name to your information on The BigScreen Cinema Guide at no additional cost! (domain registration fees are extra, however)

This is a low-cost and easy way for you to have your own web site without the effort and costs of doing one yourself.

Featured Theater Service is the foundation of everything we offer to theaters. Not only do you get increased exposure on The BigScreen Cinema Guide, but you have the ability to update your theater information 24/7 and view reports from a password-protected web site. Then, if you decide that you would like to have a greater online presence, we can build on that foundation to provide more individualized web sites for your theater -- we use the same information and put your branding front and center!

Please review the following features to find out more about how our Featured Theater Service can put your theater in front of our readers, who are also your customers!

  • Priority Placement on Listings
    Featured Theaters are listed first in theater listings (see example) as well as at the top of movie showtimes listings (Featured Theaters are shown above all others)
  • Showtime Schedules & Information Pages

Your showtimes and information can be online in 1-2 business days. Please contact us today to get started!

Basic Web Site

Many theaters want to have their own name on their web site, but don't want to have the expense and complexity of a fully custom-built web site. When some of our Featured Theaters wanted to take things to the next level, but didn't want to take it too far, we worked with them to come up with a basic web site that put their name in front of their customers, but still took advantage of all the services that we provide to our Featured Theaters!

Here is a sampling of some theaters using our Basic Web Sites:

Custom Web Site

We also offer the ability to integrate much of this information into custom-designed web site if you wish. This way, you can have a fully customized web site, but still take advantage of the automated updates of showtimes, ticket prices, movie information, and announcements.

With this level of integration, the Showtimes page and the Movies page on your web site are updated automatically with information from The BigScreen Cinema Guide. We are able to provide customized elements, such as movie posters showing which movies are playing, information boxes that show brief information about each movie, and more. All this is done automatically from The BigScreen Cinema Guide, so you don't have to manually update your web site each week when new movies come in and older movies leave your theater.

Having your own custom web site allows you to offer more information specific to your theater, such as advertising information and extended theater information. It also allows you to have E-Mail addresses, mailing lists, and other features that are possible with a custom-designed web site. Want to update pages on your own, whenever you want? You'll be able to do that through a password-protected section of your site. If you don't wish to update it yourself, you can have us do it for you instead!

The fee for creating a custom web site for you is variable, based on what you would like to have done. Simple web sites cost less, more complex sites with more features and high-end artwork cost more. That's the beauty of custom design -- what you pay matches what you want from your web site!

After we create a custom web site for you and host it on our servers, the monthly hosting fee would be combined with your Featured Theater Service for an additional fee, based on the needs of your web site. Pricing varies based on your needs, so please contact us for more information.


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!
