Cinemark

Though movie apps like Flixster and Moviefone (which allow users to locate any theaters near them) clearly have their utility, sometimes it's nice to have an app specific to a certain theater brand. Precisely for this purpose, Cinemark Theaters, one of the biggest names in the "motion picture exhibition industry," has released an official Android app.

The application will grant users GPS directions to any domestic Cinemark theater, in addition to:

  • Securely purchasing movie tickets
  • Accessing "My Cinemark" favorite theaters
  • Searching for their preferred Cinemark theater locations
  • Viewing their gift card balances
  • Viewing their ticket purchase histories
  • Searching for movies Coming Soon
  • Searching for movies Now Playing
  • Viewing movie trailers
  • Rating, Synopsis, Cast etc.
  • Getting information for the films they want to see
  • Sharing showtimes via email, text, Facebook or Twitter
  • Sharing theater locations via email, text, Facebook or Twitter
  • Sharing movie info via email, text, Facebook or Twitter

It's a pretty standard set of features, overall, but there doesn't seem to be any downside to installing the app -- and besides, it does have a pretty sexy look, perhaps explaining its current four-star rating. If you're interested, download away using the info below:

    i give it a four. why do these people just port their iphone apps to the play store? it's like being treated as a second hand

    "sometimes it's nice to have an app specific to a certain theater brand" - why? I can't see the benefit to this over say Flixter/Moviefone....

      Agreed. No single theater has enough of my loyalty to make me want to install a dedicated app. Quite the opposite in fact.
