Sponsorship and Advertising
at the Center Theatre

Why Advertise at the Center Theatre?

It's really simple: Advertising at the Center Theatre works!

  • Thousands of people walk through our doors each year, looking for places to eat, shop, and relax.

  • Our prime location and wide variety of programming will get people from all over the state  through your doors as well!

  • Choose from Sponsorships, Movie Ads, the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival, or a combination! 

Your advertising dollars also help support the mission of the Center Theatre to make arts, education, and entertainment accessible to our rural communities to engage and inspire.

Movie Ads

With over 10,000 tickets sold per year, movies are among the Center Theatre’s most consistently well-attended events.  Whether it’s a 15-second slide or a short video, your marketing assets will be viewed by audiences before each movie showing.  If you want a short video, but don't have one - don't worry! We can also help you create a short video to show off your business to it's best advantage.

 

  • Center Theatre :  $125/month, 3 months $250, 6 months $500 

  •  New 2nd Screen: $100/month, 3 months $200, 6 months $400

Sponsorships

In addition to advertising, the Center Theatre also offers additional benefits to those individuals and businesses who sponsor a particular event, a class, or even or the entire season. Regardless of your level of support, you can be sure that your contribution is bringing the performing arts in all its many forms to the people of Central Maine.
