The Film Cooperative is a network of over 120 independent cinema websites. It offers distributors the opportunity to promote their films in most prominent positions, using sales-driving ads that link directly to booking. Film and lifestyle orientated brands use the network to cost-effectively reach a highly engaged online film audience.

The ads and trailers on this page are for recent campaigns that we have run or will be running shortly. In addition to running the advertising we can also act as a single point of access to these cinemas for distributing trailers, social media assets and leveraging added-value coverage for films and brands.

Campaign 1

Watch the brand new trailer for Toy Story 4.  In UK cinemas June 21st.

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.

Forthcoming Campaign

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Campaign 2

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters,” an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

To coincide with this, the 2014 Godzilla film is on sale via Amazon.

Recent Campaigns



Bringing together the best of UK independent exhibition and delivering over 17 million ad impressions per month.

The network allows distributor advertisers to increase awareness at point of ticket purchase with ads that link directly to booking. It also gives film interested brands access to a quality committed cinema audience.

We represent 9 circuits – Cinemas Online,  Empire, ReelMerlin, Scott, Picturedrome, WTW, Savoy and The Light – and over 120 cinemas from large urban powerhouses such as Odyssey Belfast through to smaller venues like Loewen Mablethorpe and Rex Elland.


We fully understand the difficulties in reaching the fragmented independent exhibition sector. We, however, are in constant contact with our cinemas so we are in a position to negotiate many added-value features such as free newsletter inclusions, editorial coverage and featured trailers in addition to low-cost but highly-targeted ad campaigns.


We work closely with Onscreen magazine, the leading film magazine for independent cinema.  Onscreen covers many of the same cinemas so you can get your ads into print as well as online.

  • Published bi-monthly
  • Print run 100,000 per issue
  • 70+ cinemas covered

Preferential rates when booking OnScreen and The Film Cooperative Network together.



The Film Cooperative was set up over 5 years ago to provide cinema websites with an additional online revenue stream to complement their onscreen and in-foyer ad revenue.  It provides quality brand ads from market leading suppliers and also higher value campaigns from distributors and film or lifestyle orientated brands who are happy to pay a premium for reaching a known cinema-going audience in a high quality environment.

Unlike most ad serving solutions we are not a faceless algorithm. We have humans to help you implement our service or to talk to in the unlikely event that you have a query.  We are very easy to deal with and offer prompt and regular payment.


We’re always looking for new cinema exhibitors to join the network – the bigger we are the better we can be!
