  2. Is there an updated link for Cinemark? I get a screen saying to look here in the Spring of 2012 for the summer movies-appears to be from last summer.


    • Thanks Jane! I saw that and tried to find a new link but couldn’t (I’m hoping they’ll refresh the page soon…)

    Just FYI, the link for Cinemark hasn’t been updated for 2012 yet, it still says the 2011 summer program has ended. Hopefully they update it soon. Thanks for sharing!!
