LSC : Tickets & Offiers
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 a captive audience of over 900 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 35mm 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.
