Opportunities for local businesses to promote themselves to the community.

Corporate sponsorship is sought for each Reel Alternatives movie. Current sponsorship rates are $175. For this the sponsor receives recognition on the tickets, on the web page and in the radio ads and newspaper articles relating to the film sponsored. They also are recognized in the theatre on the night of the screening, receive a pair of complimentary tickets to the screening, and have the opportunity to use the reverse of the tickets, or the evening itself, to build in a promotional initiative. Some sponsors have used the reverse of the tickets as a discount coupon, handed out promotional flyers, or donated items to be given away in our nightly draw.

If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship contact Helena Renwick at 705-783-9107 or send an inquiry to
