The movie schedule is made on a week to week basis and show times usually are not finalized until Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning at most theatre locations. This is due to the film department negotiating with the studios on how many prints need to be at each location for the films playing.

We suggest that you double check the listing on the day you plan to see the movie.
Every theatre location has different prices for certain days, times, special events, and ticket types. To view ticket types and prices, select your desired showtime from any theatre or movie page. The ticket types and prices will be listed in the ticket selection area for your chosen showtime.

Digital cinema encompasses every aspect of the movie making process, from production and post-production to distribution and projection. Post-production houses have been using digital equipment to edit and master movies and animation for some time. Digital Cinema is flexible in that any movie can be shown, whether 2D or 3D.
A digitally produced or digitally converted movie can be distributed to theaters via satellite, physical media, or fiber optic networks. The digitized movie is stored by a computer/server which "serves" it to a digital projector for each screening of the movie.
For millions of moviegoers worldwide and leading directors including George Lucas and Steven Soderbergh, the answer is an unqualified "yes." When you see a movie digitally, you see that movie the way its creators intended you to see it: with incredible clarity and detail. In a range of up to 35 trillion colors. And whether you're catching that movie on opening night or months after, it will always look its best, because digital movies are immune to the scratches, fading, pops and jitter that film is prone to with repeated screenings. That's why directors love digital cinema: it ensures that their creation will be reproduced with total fidelity at every screening.
Cinemark supports and enforces the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) / CARA (Classification And Rating Administration) ratings system. You must be at least 17 years of age (18 in some states) or have a parent or legal guardian accompany you to view the movie. Valid ID's will be required to attend R-Rated movies, and will be checked at the theatre.
Additionally, so that R-Rated movies may be enjoyed in a more adult atmosphere, children under age 6 will not be admitted to any R-Rated feature after 6:00 PM.
