                                 Magazine

                   now also serving China, Russia and India

                screentrade‟s Readership Profile
Generic, factual, entertaining and informative, screentrade -- designed with a more
accessible consumer, “coffee-table” magazine feel in mind (than the usual bland trade
journal format) -- offers news, features and opinion on the more important issues
affecting the global Movie Theatre business. screentrade is therefore aimed as much at
cinema management across the board as it is at film distributors, projection/ technical
management, plus cinema architects and supply companies servicing the industry.

screentrade features regular comment on industry trends – such as Industry
consolidation, Digital Cinema (and Alternative Content), Film Piracy, Cinema
Management plus career-related (including recruitment and training) matters for
technicians and management alike.

In addition to regular news, prize competition, nostalgia, letters, box office and review
pages, screentrade also offers timely and honest, if not also frequently controversial,
debate on Exhibitor issues. What sets screentrade apart is its emphasis on the
“community” aspects of the business: Appointment with the Manager, Up Close &
Personal and Open Forum remain very much people-focused articles enjoyed by
personnel across all levels internationally.




     How relevant is screentrade to the Industry?
Extremely. And, while never forgetting Exhibition to be very much a “people-business,”
our experience has determined what exhibitor-distributors actually want from a magazine
serving their industry. The results are incorporated into screentrade and fill an important
void. In addition to engaging a bank of experienced trade writers, a revolving roster of
key exhibition-distribution sector professionals also regularly contributes items of interest
and concern ensuring that screentrade’s finger remains firmly on the pulse. The hands-
on, practical advice offered in our Dear Screentrade and Beyond the Porthole sections
remains a unique feature in the trade press, while our lively letters pages offer further
proof of spirited readership interaction.

         How dedicated is screentrade to serving
              the Movie Theatre Industry?
Rather than occasional, one-off coverage often seen in the trade press, each issue of
screentrade contains dedicated, regular sections for the following supply sectors:

                               -Digital Cinema
                               -Film Marketing
                               -Point of Sale (ticketing, software)
                               -Concessions & concessions equipment
                               -Concession reviews
                               -Seating
                               -Preshow (including Cinema Advertising)
                               -Legal/Insurance/Health & Safety
                               -Box Office: including film reviews and stats
                               -Company Profiles & Anniversaries
                               -Cinema mystery shopping
                               -Book reviews & website evaluation
                               -Nostalgia
                               -Agony Aunt/Uncle
                               -Screens
                               -Sound


This means that if -- as an advertising-supplier -- your sector is listed here, and your aim
is to reach exhibitors in person, then you can be assured of regular inclusion. Together
with paid advertising, we also offer editorial at no charge to our frequent advertisers to
help you get your message across.



                       Who reads screentrade?
screentrade is distributed wholesale and both directly and without charge to the Cinema
Industry’s decision-makers: including CEOs, COOs, technical, concession and other
equipment purchasers (also to those influencing the decision-making) across the UK,
West Europe, North America, also Russia, China and India. In North America alone,
we distribute to over 600 theatre chains, including all of the majors and mid-sized chains,
plus the growing plethora of “mom & pop” cinemas. screentrade’s reach remains global,
however, and, as a matter of course, we distribute to companies supplying the Cinema
Industry, in addition to maintaining a large and growing international subscriber
database.
                   Where is screentrade based?
We are based in offices in Orpington, Kent – just 10 miles from Central London –
established in August 2001. Our launch issue was published in February 2002 and,
steadily, our international audience has grown such that, in June 2006, we opened a US
office near Grand Rapids, Michigan, specifically to service our growing North American
audience (see contact details, below).




       How frequently is screentrade published?
screentrade is published quarterly in:

                               -Winter (Feb/Mar),
                               -Spring (May/June),
                               -Summer (Aug/Sept) and
                               -Autumn (Nov/Dec),

and is timed to coincide with the run-up to five major industry trade shows – ShoWest
(March), Cinexpo (June), Kino Expo (September) & ShowEast (October), plus
CineAsia (December) – which permits decision-makers sufficient prior time to read and
digest. screentrade publishes in the middle of the publishing month e.g., 15th Feb.,
May., Aug. & Nov.




          Why should I advertise in screentrade?
Since screentrade is distributed directly and without charge to named industry
management and key employees -- and no bulk mailings that rely upon the inefficient
hope of head office internal redistribution -- you can, as an advertiser, be sure of
circulation and of more effective circulation, with increased opportunities to sell. Keeping
all abreast of new trends and developments within the sector, your advertisements and
announcements will be:

- read both by existing and potential purchasers of your products,
- placed directly facing (or near to) relevant editorial, thereby stimulating extra interest,
- noticed.

Therefore, as a new advertiser with screentrade, or perhaps one currently wishing to
enter the industry, your exposure will be greatest.
