Become a Program Sponsor

New programming opportunities emerge each month and films come along regularly that merit an underwriting sponsor. Opportunities include opening nights of first run films, Children's Series, Documentaries, Classic Films, Local film premieres, and much more.   Is there a particular audience you would like to target and connect with?  Why not use a current title to bring you together!

Program Sponsors will receive title billing in all film or program promotion and advertising; including pre-show slides, website, newsletter, and social media.  Movie passes for clients, customers, and employees can also be arranged.  If you are interested in a particular theme, genre, or a special event, please email for more information on sponsorship pricing.

Pre-Show Advertising

On-screen advertising provides a larger than life message delivered to a captive audience.  The Grail will also be spicing up the screen to keep the audience interested as well. (Think funny clips from TV shows, nostalgic ads, and an occasional cat, dressed up as a shark, riding a rumba...)

Your static ad will run in 10 second spots at least 3 times before each show on all 3 screens.  With over 60 shows a week, that is over 700 direct presentations per month!  We have well over 5000 visitors a month and growing, including locals and tourists, who have made a choice to support local and are already downtown.  By purchasing on-screen advertising at the Grail you are also helping to support local and independent film here in Asheville.

Promotional Rates starting at just $75 and discounts add up with longer term commitments.
