Dear Business Owners and Event Planners:


The Roseland Theatre converted to digital projection in November 2015, and with it came to opportunity to offer on-screen advertising for local businesses and events.  On-Screen Advertising is a creative way for you to reach a relaxed, receptive, captive audience and a great way to project your name to the community and visitors to our area.  In addition, your advertising will support an effort to sustain motion picture entertainment for the local community.


All advertising runs on our BIG SCREEN prior to the show giving your ad maximum exposure to the greatest number of patrons attending a show.  Pre-show programming will be run prior to every movie shown at the Roseland. This includes all of our first-run features, international films, and special motion picture showings.  The Roseland will be expanding the number of features and movie showings once we deploy digital projection.


Because we are dedicating pre-show programming to include the on-screen ads and there is a limit to total advertising time, advertising space is limited.  


Advertisements run approximately 20 seconds, and are a full-screen color ad which you can design yourself.  Our advertising is done via a PowerPoint presentation.  If you are PowerPoint savvy, you can provide us with your slide(s).  If you do not know PowerPoint, no problem!  We will put a presentation together for you at no charge.  When designing your ad, keep in mind that horizontal (landscape) ads work best on our BIG SCREEN.  Vertical (portrait) style ads can be run, but will not use the screen to its full advantage. At anytime, feel free to contact us if you would like assistance and we will be happy to help you with your ad design.


Thank you for your support of the Roseland Theatre and we look forward to potentially serving a part of your advertising needs.
