Cineplex, Canada’s premier cinema company, faced a fundamental challenge. While Cineplex enjoyed near universal brand awareness they were surprisingly weak on brand affinity. Any emotional connection Canadians had was to the Hollywood films Cineplex played, and not the brand itself. This was increasingly becoming an issue with the onslaught of new, cheaper, more convenient ways to watch movies such as Netflix and Apple TV. Cineplex set out to remind Canadians to see the big picture and rediscover the meaningful role that entertainment can play in their lives. An emotional short film was created with the intent of being as entertaining to watch as the movies Canadians watch on Cineplex screens. The film surpassed 30 million views, shattering objectives by over 1300%, with a remarkable 9:1 ratio of organic vs. paid views. All this engagement helped drive record theatre sales and a remarkable increase in brand affinity in under three months.
