UB Media, an advertising sales company that specializes in the Out-of-Home media vertical through the company’s network of Resto-Bar, Campus and Cinema media properties has acquired the exclusive media sales representation rights to the media properties of Landmark Cinemas Canada and Imagine Cinemas. UB Media is presently booking 2019 campaigns for its new in-theatre network.

UB Media’s addition of Landmark and Imagine Cinemas’ media properties, which presently includes representation of Quebec’s Cinémas Guzzo and leading independent Québec exhibitors , significantly expands the company’s reach within the cinema channel, providing UB Media’s advertising partners with access to 760 movie screens, a notable market share of over 30% of all movie screens in Canada.

President and CEO of UB Media, Michael Minicucci states: “With the addition of Landmark and Imagine Cinemas to our network we are able to provide a vital national cinema offering of significant reach to both leading national brands and regional advertisers. We are committed to stimulate continued innovation in the segment that will continue to enhance cinema advertising’s reputation as both a highly effective and captivating media choice for advertisers to reach a valuable audience.”

“Cinema media provides a compelling, interruption free medium to connect with today’s consumer,” said Bill Walker, CEO Landmark Cinemas, “and we are excited to partner with UB Media as they possess proven expertise in this channel, understand the effectiveness of the medium, and are committed to its continued growth.”

In 2017 UB Media announced the certification of its Cinema Network with COMMB, the Canadian Out of Home Marketing & Measurement Bureau. As the first media sales agency within the cinema channel to be accredited by COMMB, and by applying its impression-based methodology to onscreen advertising, UB Media provides its partners with a transparent, third-party impression auditing of their campaigns. UB Media will apply for COMMB certification of the Landmark and Imagine Cinemas’ network to provide its advertising partners with the only national, audited cinema advertising circuit.
