AEBN Guide to Premium Galleries

AEBN’s Premium Galleries Sales Tool is a great improvement over the classic system with a sleek, updated design as well as today’s most popular content.

Movie Gallery Pages are the industry standard, but with Premium Galleries you can drive even more traffic to your theater than our existing MGPs. You’ll find there are more dynamic options as well as an updated look. With new galleries added every week and content to fill every niche, our Premium Galleries mean fresh content for your customers, increased traffic for your website, and improved overall sales.

You may filter your Premium Gallery’s content based on any combination of stars, studios or categories. You may also select the theater, either your own custom theater or an AEBN theater, to which users will be directed after viewing the Premium Gallery.
