Cinemark is once again teaming up with ESPN to bring some of college football’s most anticipated matchups to the big screen, only at Cinemark theatres. Following the success of last year’s kickoff program, Cinemark and ESPN are expanding the number of locations showcasing the best that college football has to offer.
This postseason, fans can catch the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl, the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and, the biggest game of all, the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T, at select U.S. theatres.
“Cinemark is thrilled to once again offer college football fans an opportunity to watch this year’s most anticipated games in our immersive, shared environment, especially given the enthusiasm we saw in our theatres last year,” said Wanda Gierhart Fearing, Cinemark chief marketing and content officer. “We are thankful for the collaboration with ESPN and our ability to bring this year’s games to even more cities as we expand participating locations. Our larger-than-life screens and booming surround sound create the ultimate experience for fans to cheer on their team without missing a single heart-pounding play.”
No. 2 Michigan will square off against No. 3 TCU in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl on Saturday, December 31, at 4 p.m. ET. Immediately following, No. 1 Georgia will take on No. 4 Ohio State at 8 p.m. ET in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.
The winners of the two games will go head-to-head for the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T on Monday, January 9 at 7:30 p.m. ET. All showings will include ESPN’s live pre-game studio programming.
