The Independent Marketing Edge (I.M.E.) was started in 1990 by Dan Klusmann as a marketing resource for independent theatres. The bi-weekly Newsletter and Scoreboard were later complemented by Ad Sheets, Film Marketing Preview Guides, the ShowTime Buyer's Guide and the I.M.E. Web site. Theatre circuits took notice of the service and began signing up their managers. Over its 17 year history, I.M.E. grew into the #1 marketing service of its kind, serving over 3,000 theatres world wide. This includes many of the nation's largest theatre circuits.
In 2008, I.M.E. is launching a whole new concept in industry communications! This valuable Web site showcases a host of services designed to inform, educate, motivate, inspire and save time for theatre management. The distribution of new quarterly ShowTime Film Marketing Preview Guides, printed in full color, will expand to reach all exhibitors. With the support of 100 industry vendors, major film studios and industry organizations, the new I.M.E. is poised to be a true industry service with all profits going to industry charities.
