LSC Slide Advertising

For almost 50 years, the MIT Lecture Series Committee has been presenting first-run and classic movies to the MIT Community on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. Take advantage of LSC's unique ability to present information to an audience of hundreds of students each weekend with our inexpensive and easy slide advertising program.

Our advertisers range from corporations seeking the best graduates in the country to small MIT groups wishing to inexpensively advertise their upcoming event. We work closely with all our advertisers to ensure that their experience with advertising at LSC is superior. We can create a slide from almost any computer file or printed submission such as flyers, signs, or small posters, and transform your artwork into a beautiful full-color slide. Your slide then will be presented before the audience at each of our movies just before showtime to maximize your advertisement's effectiveness.

We show slides after the scheduled starting time of the film and with the house lights off to ensure the prominence of the slide on the screen. Each slide is shown for at least 30 seconds. Please contact us if you're interested in multislide series.

To find out more about our slide offerings read the following pages:

Please submit your design in electronic format to We ask you to please try to use PNG, TIFF, GIF, or JPEG format, with our preference being in that order. We now show slides electronically at a 16:9 aspect ratio resolution, so images should ideally be that size and aspect ratio. Please also send your billing information- either an MIT account number or your billing address.

Slides turned in after 6:00 p.m. three business days before the slide is to be shown will incur a late fee of $25.
