Cinemas has grown exponentially, opening new theaters across the country
as well as acquiring other movie theater chains. The most successful
being the recent acquisition of Cobb Theaters and CinéBistro, whose

complemented CMX’s position in the U.S. These acquisitions have made CMX
one of the largest movie theater chains in the country with 37
locations, 388 screens and 2,450 employees. The announcement of CMX’s
first New York City location marks the perpetuation of the luxury cinema
company’s robust expansion plans that include confirmed sites in New
