This in-theatre and online gaming offering builds on Cinemark’s tradition of innovating its entertainment experience and serving as a true entertainment destination at a time when Hollywood is bringing more gaming universes to films than ever before. Through the past few years, Cinemark has introduced Private Gaming Parties, allowing guests to rent an entire auditorium to play video games in the most immersive gaming environment; brought the epic Game Awards to audiences from the comfort of its auditoriums, streaming the event live; and partnered with The VOID to bring an unparalleled hyper-reality experience to its West Plano and XD theatre. Over the next year, Hollywood’s biggest studios will be bringing gaming universes to the big screen through a variety of upcoming films ranging from Free Guy, Uncharted and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City and Dungeons and Dragons.
