"Partnering with Cinepolis plays a significant role in the growth of MovieTickets.com on both a regional and global level," said Cohen.  "Given the sheer size and quality of Cinepolis' theatres and reach, together we have an incredible opportunity to service moviegoers with the benefits of online ticketing and movie information.  This is a milestone in the development of our international strategy and we couldn't be more pleased to partner with an exhibitor of this stature in this significant part of the world."

Cinepolis is both the largest theater chain in Mexico with 275 theaters across 95 cities, and the leading exhibitor in Latin America.  Now with the MovieTickets.com service, moviegoers in Mexico will be able to purchase advance movie tickets online at movietickets.com.mx or cinepolis.com.  Cinepolis currently operates theaters throughout Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Honduras, Brazil and India, with plans for expansion into additional countries.

"MovieTickets.com will increase our ability to sell online," said Villavicencio.  "For Cinepolis, state-of-the-art tools are the base of our leading ticket sales.  Specifically in order to continue innovating for our attendees' benefit, we have been using telephone and Internet platforms.  The alliance with MovieTickets.com will allow us to draw an even closer relationship with our more than 100 million consumers."
