Film Guide Advertising

The Film Guide.

The Playhouse Cinema publishes a 4-page film guide every 5 weeks. The Film Guide is a complete listing of all films playing at the Playhouse during that period. It includes a compete calendar of showtimes, reviews and other interesting information about our upcoming films.

The Film Guide is our main in-house method to spread cinema news around the town & on the streets, at cafes, bookstores, libraries and community information centres.


Every five weeks, our dedicated team of "Film Guide Wranglers" hand deliver the Playhouse film guide to more than 125 locations around town.

Our print circulation is currently 6,000 guides. 800 film guides are mailed direct to Playhouse Cinema membership holders.

Guides are easily found at many downtown Hamilton locations. We also distribute to Dundas, Ancaster, The Mountain, and Westdale.
