We are pleased to announce our new independent distribution line. As independent filmmakers, we are too often taken advantage of over the all mighty dollar. We pour our hearts into our work, attend film festivals, self-promote/market, and hope that we can be approached by a distributor who's going to look out for our best interest and help the film reach its maximum potential. In truth, what actually happens is not that simple. The most common occurrence is that the filmmakers make little to no money from their film, get put on platforms where there are little interest already set for their film, and they are stuck in long-term contracts where they lose the rights of their film for sometimes up to 10+ years. What we have done for independent filmmakers is quite the opposite. We have cut out all of the middlemen and directly have created a workable solution for film procurement, exposure, and profitability. Not only that, but with doing so, we have also created an opportunity for advancement in the industry by way of accreditation, to include fulfilling requirements that will make filmmakers eligible with organizations such as the Producers Guild of America and more.

Spotlight Cinemas opened their first theater in April 1996. This first theater located in Bangor, Maine started as a discount theater. In 2003, adjusting to industry changes, the cinema was upgraded with stadium seating and began showing first run movies. Since then, Spotlight has grow to 7 locations and almost 50 screens along the East Coast - from Maine to South Carolina. Many things have changed over the years, but not our dedication to provide quality family entertainment and exceptional value.
All Spotlight locations feature digital projection and sound. Some locations have 3D and stadium seating. We even re-introduced the discount theater concept at our St. Andrews Cinema in Columbia, SC.
We look forward to showing you the best movies. Enjoy the show.
Spotlight Cinemas is officially in partnership with PMG Studios as part of an exclusive independent film distribution line. Visit their website to learn more about each cinema location that is included.
