Cinema Delivers the Hearts of Consumers

With consumers’ entertainment dollars being stretched further than ever and more entertainment options fighting for those dollars, cinema remains the choice of Canadians. In the past 12 months, more than 102 million Cineplex Media moviegoers have attended the movies. No channel switching, commercial zapping or multi-tasking to distract moviegoers from your message. Impact Research consistently reveals cinema’s strong Ad Awareness, Brand Recall and Purchase Intent. It all means ad messages in cinema reach the Heart of the Consumer (thanks to your ad’s effectiveness, your budget truly delivers the audience you buy). Cinema provides a cost-efficient night out for our movie-going consumers. It’s still a treat to get out of the house and see the best that Hollywood and the film industry have to offer — something even the cable series can’t provide.

The Happy Place

Movie theatres are happy places. Movies provide consumers with an escape from the world for a short time, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the story on the screen. Thus the actual act of “going to the movies” is a positive experience. “Going to the movies” is often the catalyst for more entertainment, be it seeing friends, loved ones, dinner or shopping.

In a recent Media Behavior Institute U.S. study (Touchpoints 2013):

  • 62% of moviegoers used the term “happy” when describing their state of mind at the movies.
  • 29% described themselves as “excited”.
  • No other media came closer than 10% when asked the same questions.

A U.S. National Omnibus Study shows (Phoenix Marketing International, May 2013):

  • A18-59 - 49% of moviegoers believe ads “added to their enjoyment”.
  • With women, it increases to 52%!
  • With A18-34, it increases to 54%!

Showcase your brand in a theatre full of non-distracted, engaged and happy consumers who are interested in what you have to tell them.

No other media can deliver that.
