Despite there being a ton of Android apps for movie discovery in the Google Play Store, there is still a clear demand for dedicated movie theater apps out there. With dedicated apps such as the newly released Cinemark Theaters you can find not only movies playing in your area but also purchase tickets directly from your smartphone and Cinemark has loaded their app with features:
- Search for your preferred Cinemark theatre location
- Purchase movie tickets securely
- View your gift card balance
- Search for movies Coming Soon
- Search for movies Now Playing
- View movie trailers
- Share showtimes, theatre locations and movie via email, text, Facebook or Twitter
If your planning an outing to the movies, you can check out the app which is now available in the Google Play Store and you'll find the download past the break. Now, I know I won't be waiting in line when The Avengers comes out.

These apps from cinemark and amc just seem silly when you can find and buy anything from imdb.
Well I like the dedicated apps from the likes of AMC as it helps make it smoother to get tickets.
I like the idea of a dedicated app to preview trailers, times, buy tickets, etc, but when they charge a service charge, no thanks... I'll stick to flixster or poynt.
Well fuck this, don't give the MPAA your money, any of it. They just won't learn, read this shit: Hollywood brags about backroom dealing in support of new #SOPA: http://act.demandprogress.org/act/new_sopa/?referring_akid=1302.190379.3... These people refuse to update their business models and instead are attempting to destroy the free internet just to vainly attempt to maintain their outdated business practices. This is just pain wrong, they must be reined in, and giving them more money to use to fuck us with isn't going to help.
Amen brother Amen!!!!!!
So, in other words, this app does everything that Flixter and the rest can do, but only for one theatre chain? I think I'm missing the point...
