The cinema industry is continuing to go from strength to strength with over 90 million admissions in Australia each year. Drawing on a decade of historical promotional data we know movie tickets have mass appeal across a broad demographic and attract strong levels of promotional participation.
Aligning with a specific film opens up an abundance of opportunity for brands, with direct access to the film’s creative IP allowing brands to piggy-back off the huge marketing & PR campaigns that will surround the movie’s launch and the ability to leverage the power of existing film properties.
Here Sales Director and movie Expert Emily Halls discusses the biggest upcoming films to hit theatres, offering huge appeal for brands and their customers alike. And if any of these titles or a movie specific promotion isn’t for you, we can also create generic movie ticket promotions.
