AE Arts & Entertainment - a&e

For years, the Kitsap Sun’s weekly arts and entertainment guide, aptly named a&e, has been Kitsap’s premier weekly guide to places to go and things to do.   In any given edition, readers find insights to dining, live theatre, art galleries, music, movies and books.  Especially helpful and popular are listings of local movie theaters, current movie schedules and concise movie descriptions.  A longtime popular staple of the Friday Kitsap Sun,  a&e is also delivered Saturdays as a free publication to an additional 71,000 local households.   The extensive distribution of a&e, coupling its Friday delivery to the subscriber audience of the Kitsap Sun and to non-subscriber homes on Saturdays, enables superior reach of Kitsap County’s activity-minded consumers.  Its weekly publishing schedule and timely content aid its retention and use.   Preprint and display advertisers achieve the best of all worlds—maximum household reach, high readership levels and extended visibility.
