Fandango announced today it has signed multi-year deals with leading international exhibitors Cinemark, Cinepolis (in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Chile and Colombia), National Amusements (Showcase Cinemas, UCI) and Cinemex, adding more than 5,000 new screens in more than 15 Latin American countries. The new deals will bring Fandango’s global screen count to more than 45,000 worldwide.
The new deals will greatly increase the ticketing footprint of Fandango’s subsidiary Fandango Latin America (fandango.lat), including 94 percent of all screens in Colombia, 78 percent in Chile, 72 percent in Bolivia and half of all screens in Mexico and Peru. These additions will bring Fandango’s total coverage (through Fandango Latin America and subsidiary Ingresso.com in Brazil) to more than half of all screens across the region.
“We’re experiencing tremendous momentum in Latin America, signing new deals with leading cinema chains, enabling us to serve millions of additional moviegoers throughout the region,” said Kevin Shepela, senior vice president, head of global commerce at Fandango. “In addition to deploying thousands of new screens in more than 15 countries, we are greatly enhancing our ecommerce platforms with new movie discovery and ticketing innovations and value-added moviegoer promotions.”
