In 2011, various production
companies began inquiring about theatrical distribution of their entertainment
content including live streaming of high-profile sporting events. “We began setting up calls with theater
circuits to better understand the needs of the theaters and how we could build
a bridge from the content producers to the cinemas. We spoke with over 50 circuits in a matter of
a few weeks and learned the current state of theatrical distribution offers many areas for improvement. We wanted to work with the premiere satellite
service and that is why we chose Microspace Communications. “ –Beverly
Nation, President of Hollywood Branding.

venture, the Entertainment Nation Theater Network will offer theater circuits
the latest technology in satellite distribution including the capacity for live
streaming events in 2D and 3D.
Nation Theatre Network is a natural extension of the work Microspace has done
in the motion-picture industry over the past 5 years. As the reach of digital cinema continues to
spread, Entertainment Nation will provide theatres with opportunities for
programming and revenue that simply did not exist in the era of 35mm film, and
we are thrilled to provide the delivery services and integration to help make
these happen.” –Curt Tilly,
Director of Digital Cinema, Microspace Communications.

About Hollywood Branding International:
2001, Hollywood Branding created a new business model that streamlined the
process of planning and executing regional and national movie theater promotions for
brands. Launching with their first
client, Disney, the new platform filled the need for a centralized planning
system to aggregate over 7,000 movie theaters, 400 movie circuits, and 30
different marketing companies that own the pre-show advertising inventory. Today, Hollywood Branding remains the only
agency planning and executing national theater promotions for brands. In 2011, the company expanded to offer product
placement services in Hollywood movies, TV shows, and music videos. Also in 2011, Hollywood Branding launched
Entertainment Nation, the B2C division of the company. The new Entertainment
Nation Theater Network provides theatrical distribution of feature films,
documentaries, music concerts, sporting events, and Spanish language content
from around the globe.
