About the Certified Giant Screen® Program

GSCA developed the Certified Giant Screen Program to differentiate the giant screen experience and support members in their efforts to communicate and market that differentiation. We believe that all giant screen theaters offer a premium, immersive movie experience, and we created our certification and marketing programs to help our members succeed by clearly communicating one of their theater’s unique differences.

A survey of 4,700 consumers conducted by the GSCA, online and in theaters, revealed that people want movies on a bigger screen. Nearly 70% said knowing they could see a film on a “certified giant screen” would impact their theatergoing decision. This new certification will allow theaters to display the GSCA’s trademarked certification icons and “Bigger. Bolder. Better.” tagline in all the theater’s marketing materials to help further differentiate it from a crowded marketplace of new projection alternatives.

Trademark Review

GSCA has taken steps to eliminate any potential trademark confusion. After an extensive trademark review, analysis by our own legal representatives, and input from industry manufacturing partners, we are confident that qualifying theaters following the guidelines as outlined in the tool kit will be able to participate in the program with no legal repercussions from other trademark partners.

Both the tagline and icon are designed to supplement member marketing efforts, not to replace them. GSCA has taken steps to eliminate any potential confusion with other trademarks and believes the program gives audiences yet another reason to see films on a giant screen.
