Reel Partners for Business Owners

We have so many loyal fans; make them your customers! Reel Partners,a discount program for members of the Jacob Burns Film Center, provides great exposure for your business. It gives you the opportunity to support our nonprofit arts organization while reaching potential customers. Businesses partner with the JBFC for one year, providing a special offer or discount to our members. In return, we promote our partners in several ways:

  • We mail a brochure listing all partners with their offers and contact info to over 7,000 member households.
  • We post partners, their offers, and contact info on our website, which gets more than 125,000 views per month.
  • We provide a postcard listing all partners and offers in our Theater lobby, which is visited by over 200,000 moviegoers each year.
  • We promote Reel Partners in several weekly ebulletins, emailed to 26,000 subscribers, linking to the listings on our Reel Partners webpage.
  • We offer other promotional opportunities throughout the year, such as limited-time promotions and raffles for members.
  • And we extend a Dual membership to our partners – offering the member discount, 10% off concessions, special members-only comp ticket offers and invitations and more!

Our 7,000 member households represent 10,000 customers who are upscale and primarily age 40-65. They are strong repeat customers, renewing their support for us regularly.

Nonprofit rates and Corporate Sponsorships are available, but we do not offer any other advertising opportunities to businesses and never sell our mailing lists.

The annual cost for Reel Partners participation is $95. Please join us!
