Prairie Cinema


Great value for your advertising dollar!

Looking for the best value for your advertising investment?  Looking to get a bigger-than-life image of your business or group out in front of the public?  Look no further! Your ad will be featured on the big screen before every show.  In Prairie du Chien, that’s over 150 shows per week from the fall through the spring, and over 200 shows per week in the summer!

Your advertisement will run 25 seconds. The presentation will show in a continuous loop for the 25 minutes prior to each show. In Prairie du Chien, the presentation will also loop continuously on a monitor in the lobby.

Advantages of our on-screen advertising program:

In contrast to almost all other forms of advertising, on-screen movie theater advertising provides you a captive audience. Patrons welcome your advertisement because it provides something interesting upon which to focus. They enjoy learning about your business, and they retain that information long after the show.
After our customers see your ad on-screen, they may want to learn more. We offer you the opportunity to provide business cards which customers may pick up at the display in the lobby.
Nielsen Research has noted, “Going to the movies is a happy, transforming experience with family and friends — an environment where consumers are in a frame of mind to be entertained and receptive to advertising messages.”
Our program allows you to make changes as often as every week, at no extra charge.
The Prairie Cinema draws customers from a wide radius (at least 30 miles).
Our presentation is sharp, full-color, and employs motion to draw the eye.
The new digital cinema equipment provides unprecedented sharpness and clarity.

Technical Details: 

Our advertising is done via a PowerPoint presentation.  If you are PowerPoint savvy, you can provide us with your slide(s).  We may have to tweak them so that they are 25 seconds.  If you do not know PowerPoint, no problem!  We will put a presentation together for you at no charge.

Don't Know How to Get Started?:

Leave that to us!  Drop us an e-mail or give us a call, and we will put together a prototype ad for your review.  You do not need to have a fully developed idea to get started.  We have been doing this for many years and are here to help!  There is no charge nor obligation for the development of a prototype. We will be happy to meet with you at your place of business or at the theater so that you can see it on the big screen prior to making a decision.
