FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CINEMARK PRESENTS CLASSIC FILMS SERIES LINEUP FOR HOLIDAYS
Additional Showings of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE to Screen in Cinemark Theatres Nationwide on December 24th
Plano, TX, November 20, 2013 - Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), one of the world's largest motion picture exhibitors is pleased to announce four Classic Holiday films will be presented in November and December in over 130 Cinemark, Century and Rave theatres across the country. These digitally restored movies will be scheduled to play Sundays at 2:00 pm and Wednesdays at 2:00 and 7:00 pm. In addition, more than 250 Cinemark theatres will present It's A Wonderful Lifefor two shows on December 24th at 2:00 and 7:00 pm.
"Last year was the first time we brought back Holiday themed Classic Films and they were a big hit," states James Meredith, VP of Marketing & Communications for Cinemark. "This group of films is sure to get everyone into the spirit of the season with a laugh and a smile."
The four films include Elf, White Christmas, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and It's A Wonderful Life. The 1946 classic starring Jimmy Stewart, It's A Wonderful Lifeis the only holiday themed film to crack the 2007 American Film Institute's "100 Years…100Films" list of the 100 Best American Films. In addition, the song WHITE CHRISTMAS was selected as #5 in AFI's "100 Years...100 Songs" list of America's Greatest Movie Music in 2004, but from another film, Holiday Inn, not from White Christmas.
Meredith continues, "It's A Wonderful Lifeis such an iconic classic of the season that we are offering our customers an additional day to see the film at those locations already presenting the Classics Series on Christmas Eve. Then in addition we'll present the film in even more theatres that day, making it available at virtually every Cinemark location nationwide."
Individual tickets for Cinemark's Classics Series are now available at www.cinemark.com or at the participating theatre box office. A bundled ticket option for the Holiday Classic films will also be available for $20 for all four movies.
