“Ken and Codi are two of the best professionals we have had in our corporate careers. When we decided to open this business we did not have a lot of experience and not a lot of guidance. They both were a wealth of knowledge and knew how to help us scale very quickly. They offer expert advice and use data to help drive our decisions from when we opened to now. They are true partners in the industry and knows so much about trends and how to increase revenue. We would not be where we are today and made it through COVID without them. ”
— Anthony Fykes- Next Act Cinema

“We switched to Clark Film Buying after using another booker who did everything the old school way. They had no website or resources to help us make payments to studios. CFB has a modern web platform that shows all our past, current, and upcoming bookings along with our grosses. They list all the studios' contact info so we can easily make payments. I also love that we can download high quality posters and other promotional materials right from our account. I highly recommend CFB for your booking needs!”
