Since 1924, Parrot Film Co. has been providing advertising to local movie theaters throughout the United States. Many changes have occurred since that time when advertisements were made by writing backwards on glass slides. Parrot now has a staff of artists that produce animated advertisements both digitally and on rolling stock.

Parrot Film Co. is serving well over 400 theater screens throughout the United States. Many of these screens are long-standing relationships that have existed since 1984 when the company was purchased by its current owner. In 2011 Parrot Film moved from the Sioux City area to Omaha.

 In addition to local ad campaigns, Parrot Film Co., is an official agent of Screenvision®, a worldwide leader in cinema advertising. Recent advertisers include the National Guard, United States Marines, Honda, and Verizon, to name a few. Screenvision is the world’s leading cinema advertising company, providing premium marketing and media solutions for advertisers and comprehensive representation of the cinema advertising interests of its theatrical exhibitor partners. Parrot Film Co. and Screenvision have been working jointly to provide national advertising to independent theater owners for over 25 years.

Parrot Film Co. is a registered corporation in the State of Nebraska and a member of the Sioux City, Iowa Chamber of Commerce and has been featured as one of its successful small businesses in 1999 and 2005.
