Cinemark Holdings Inc.CNK is a leading motion picture exhibition company globally. As of Dec 31, 2015, Cinemark operates 513 theatres and 5,796 screens in 41 U.S. states, Brazil, Argentina and 12 other Latin American countries.
Of late, Cinemark has been opening and renovating theatres with state-of-the-art amenities. It has recently announced the inauguration of 12 screen theatres in Michigan with the NextGen cinema design concept, Luxury Lounger electric recliners in all auditoriums, and a Cinema Cafe. Addition of such special features helps to rake in ancillary revenues from movie goers through beverages and foods.
However, theater chains are constantly facing increasing threat from alternative movie streaming services such as Netflix, and Time Warner's HBO Now and Hulu. While theater chains still remain the preferred choice for film studios, the recent trend of movie watchers opting for streaming services are making film studios seek better terms in box office revenues with large-screen theater companies.
