In an increasingly fragmented media environment, NCM Media Networks offers blockbuster opportunities for brands to reach over 700 million moviegoers a year. NCM is America's number one network on weekends, consistently ranking higher than most TV and cable networks on Fridays and Saturdays.* For advertisers, NCM's FirstLook pre-show program is a unique video option that features the reach of broadcast and the highest levels of "DVR-proof" big screen engagement.

"Cinema rules the weekends when TV viewership is lowest," said Cliff Marks, president of sales and marketing with NCM Media Networks. "With some of the best engagement, recall, and likeability in the media business, cinema is the one place where marketers know that their ads will be seen, providing the perfect complement to their traditional TV media plans. After the spectacular turnout we had at our first upfront event last year, I'm proud to present the sequel!"
