Each of the above theatre locations currently houses a re-branded hall bearing the Berita Harian name and point-of-sale collaterals such as poster boxes, aisle-seat branding, and life-size cut-out standees for added exposure. The new print columns are also distributed to movie-goers during the weekend, a move which has proven effective wherein readers have been spotted flipping through the material which in queue for their ticket purchase or entering the cinema halls. Also, before the film begins, viewers are exposed to a 30-second commercial highlighting various sections of the daily to pique interest and consumer engagement. The main objective of the push is to reach out to Malay youths in an effort to increase readership amongst the segment as the publication’s core target audience. Source :
